All Day Brewing Printer’s Ink (7.5%)

Brewed in collaboration with Print To The People who provided all the beautifully created labels, this is a decent little Baltic Porter.
It pours an impenetrable inky black with a tiny ring of foam for a head and smells of prunes and cola.
As you take a mouthful you find dandelion and burdock, chocolate and coffee, treacle tart and honey biscuits, as well as a slightly incongruous creamy vanilla custard thing that feels a little bit oily.
The hopping adds a bracken and hazel pithiness and some autumnal leaf litter crunch along with a splash of maple syrup and a hint of marmalade, and all of this is pushed forward by a solid alcohol warmth, but it’s that odd oily vanilla thing that stops this beer being fantastic and leaves it as just good.
