Trooper Red and Black Porter: 4.5 – The way you cam tell this is smoked is by how sweet it is without being sugary. It’s overall an okay beer, but if asked why you would want to drink it there are little reasons you could provide. Sure it’s interesting, but not desirable. This is part of a series, of which we’ve had the 666.

Peroni Gran Riserva: 4.5 – This isn’t actually terrible. It’s certainly better than regular Peroni, but this is way harder to find. It’s got a good mix of bitter and sweetness, but it’s still a subpar beer at the end of the day.

Vladivar – baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more. (Not apologizing for that joke because it was awesome). We said that there would be more gin on this UK trip and trust me there will be a month of gin reviews. Before we dive into that though we needed to talk about this vodka. It was a random buy for a vodka sauce (no seriously) which explains why it looks like a cheap random old USSR country vodka.

Asahi Super Dry Black: 5.5 – The dry is the more important factor here although Asahi regular does that as well. While the beer is nice it goes away very quickly. You just wish this was a bit more like a schwarzbier.

Carib Lager: 2.5 – Another light beer that just lacks a real taste to make it worth drinking. It’s okay for a summer kind of beer, but in truth – no.

Oh-boy. It’s been a while since we last had a truly terrible no-good piece-o-shit vodka review. Yes folks we once again won’t even give this quarter before the fold, because if you Google this vodka we want our site to instantly tell you what you have gotten yourself into – or hopefully avoid such a fate.

Islington Steam Lager: 3.5 – The best way to describe this is imagine if a nut brown ale, and a milk stout had sex. Now that sounds like said child would be awesome, but in reality it’s not.

Super Bock: 4.5 – Wow that tastes like beer. Like the beer-y kinda of beer. The kind of beer that’s… beer-y. Not to be confused with berry as that, and truly anything would be too exotic for this beer. You could call this a five, but it’s so annoying we’ll drop 0.5

We have a theory. To preface there is an exception in the Johnnie Walker name, but otherwise it hold’s true. If a scotch is named after a person and not a place, it’s a worse scotch. We see this with things like Grant’s, Justerini & Brook’s, and now Bell’s. We attribute this to what we call ‘the just because an old man got people to buy something doesn’t make it good.’ The world is full of con men, and sometimes they make spirits.

Camden Ink Stout: 5.5 –The ink naming here is very apt. While this isn’t heavy or syrupy it does have a deeply roasted almost acrid flavor to it. However rather than leaving that in your mouth it ends cleanly like a passing squid.
