Bottle of Hambleton Nightmare (Yorkshire Porter) for the first time, fantastically tasty, thoroughly recommend.

Anyone tried this? 100% peated malt, absolutely vile stuff. Probably the most interesting and worst beer I have ever had.

It does sound like the attempt to make the world's first 100% peated malt beer was more important than how the finished product tastes. I'd love to try it, though.

If you’re a fan of peat then you’ll love this beer. It’s ironically quite light in colour.
Sounds delish.

Its a New Zealand beer, picked it up in New World Metro, Wellington. Look forward to the day in Ireland when the local small supermarket has 80+ beers.

Ventured into Marks & Spencers today and picked up two of their own-brands; Cheshire Chocolate Porter and County Carlow Irish Stout.

The Cheshire Chocolate Porter is divine. Doesn't look like a porter at all but it's got a nice soft flavour with a sweet aftertaste. Certainly worth picking up a couple of bottles if ye're ever in Mark's and Sparks.

Haven't tried the Carlow one yet, will report back later!

This evening's sipping combined an old reliable - well, a newish, but still very reliable - in O'Hara's IPA, and what could turn out to be a new favourite in the shape of Hook Norton's Double Stout. It's the first time I've had it, and it's certainly one of the more beautifully balanced stouts I've had in a while.

Can anyone more knowledgeable than I am on these matters tell me why it's a 'double' stout as opposed to regular ol' stout? The ABV was no higher than usual, which is what I thought it might have referred to (assuming it's not just a marketing angle and refers to something).
