So, to end quite a beery week, I was lucky enough to have been given a bottle of the London Collaborative Porter to try recently by Mr Abbott in exchange for some Marble and Bathams . This beer is the first (hopefully of many) from the London Brewers Alliance, a group of some of the now numerous brewers across London. For more in depth tasting notes, check out blogobeer’s review my simplistic tasting extends as far as this:
Nose – sweet, malty, definitely some chocolate malts in there.
Taste – deceptively light but spicy with the sort of sweet spices you might find in a chocolate orange.
It’s a nice small bottle too. Which means I don’t feel *too* guilty about drinking it! -Sadly limited run, I’m not sure if it’s due to come back sometime soon…
