[Review] Old Greg’s Barley Wine

Details Country: UK Brewer: The Five Points Brewing Co. Style: Barley Wine ABV: 9.3% Volume: 330ml Price: £3.50 (from Eebria) With any sort of beer tasting – or wine tasting, or whisky tasting or whatever your beverage of preference is – you’ll often find that people say that it has “hints” of one flavour, or “notes” of another flavour and this is because more often than not the drink won’t taste exactly like what…

[Review] BrewHeadZ Fired Up Donkey

Details Country: UK Brewer: BrewHeadZ Style: Red Rye IPA ABV: 6.6% Volume: 330ml Price: £1.80 (from The Beer Garage) There’s a staggering range of craft beer available these days, with more craft breweries than I could care to name, and there are nearly 70 craft breweries in London alone.

Howling Hops’ Double Chocolate Coffee Toffee Vanilla Milk Porter. It’s a mouthful for sure, and not one you could say five times fast with any sort of ease! Even less so after a few of these. I will be honest and say that with…

[Review] Fighting Cock Bourbon

Details Country: USA Region: Kentucky Distillery: Heaven Hill Style: Bourbon Alcohol: 51.5% Volume: 70cl Price: £33.15 (from The Whisky Exchange) It’s been made known that I’m a bit of a bourbon fan – I love all whiskies, but bourbons are my favourite. So if I spot a bourbon that I haven’t tried, then I have to try it. So, when I spotted a bourbon with a great name like “Fighting Cock” in my local wine merchants…
