Dark Fruits Porter

This was a treat. First time I have had this from the traditional brewer Batemans. Lovely fruity aroma with sweet black and red berries to the fore.

Tastewise, it is rich but with the expected porter like consistency, and a nice tan head with light carbonation that gives a lovely sweet but very fruity taste. Certainly cherries and berries perhaps a little apple that are supported by the malts. I didn't get the nuttiness the brewer and others suggest, but no loss there for me.

Overall, a delightful fruit porter that was nice on a late summer evening and will be just as good in deep dark January.

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Dark tawny center with amber color and clear rims. Barely translucent. Massive nose of tobacco and Cuban cigar with notes of sweet black fruit, moist dark soil, unsweetened chocolate, pencil lead, old cedar desk wood and a little barnyard. Great mouth feel and texture. Very much alive. Opened and slow-ox’d for a few hours, then put in a decanter an hour before. This powered up all night. Last sip was the best. I’ve probably had more LB than any other Bordeaux (young and old, mostly old), and this was head and shoulders better than any previous bottle. Great juice! — 22 days ago

Good. Not bashing me over the head with flavor and not too tart. Not haunted by ammonia — 2 years ago

Titanic Brewery

Dark Strong Plum Porter

This really is the king of plum porters.

Titanic's is the one that sets the bar and the one I come back to again whilst also comparing with others.

It is lovely and dark with plum aromas and a good head. Tastewise, it is a solid dark malted porter and a full plum flavour that blends but does not overpower.

It is a fine beer drinkable any month of the year.

Have you had the Patrimony Cabernet Franc? One of my wine sources has a few bottles and was thinking about trying a bottle.

Domaine Overnoy

Vieilles Vignes Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2016

Whoa. So unique- takes classic oxidative flavors and flips them on their head. Has a medIcinal, pungent, witchhazel quality on opening. At first was undecided but this won me over. Carries through to a mouth watering finish; resonant with not too much acid but terrific density and savory minerals. Silky, almost unctuous finish. — a month ago
