207/1792) The 3 Brewers, Heartland: Helga's Shameful Birthday Surprise by The 3 Brewers of Ontario: **1/2; a Thursday cask; brewed with cherries, cocoa, vanilla; very dark; sweet chocolate nose, almost like Nestle's Quik from in the day; cherries are largely absent until the close; strong, sweet chocolate and vanilla flavours;
I am reminded of Aphrodite but this one is sweeter. Maybe Young;s Double Chocolate Stout (on draught) is closer.
208/1793) Home: Lawrence of Arabica by Amager Bryghus of Denmark: **; a 7% coffee orange porter; brewed with coffee beans and orange zest; the nose is dark coffee with a hint of orange zest; mostly dark, dark coffee favours;
Maybe all the good names for beers aren't taken after all.
Today is International Stout Day.
