I hear very good things about their Taddy Porter too. That one is harder to find for me.
There's a Sam Smith pub just round the corner from my office. It's not too bad, but there are much better London beers that have cropped up over the last few years I wouldn't turn down a pint of their oatmeal stout though!

edit: This and Hop Circle IPA are hands down the best IPAs I've had in a regular 355 ml bottle.


OK Pout. Got me a 6 pack of smashbomb. Its pretty darn good and you can drink quite a few in a sitting due to its lower alcohol content 6%. Not too bad for a Canadian brew and I would buy it again. But hands down, the Green Flash West Coast IPA I mentioned at 7.2% is better. It so much more smooth and the hops taste more pure and strong. 2 bottle sitting is about all you can handle with the Green Flash. I think you need to hit up Willow Park and pick yourself up a 4 pack.

You lucky bastard. I want to try ALL of their beer on tap... it's my goal to find their Chocolate Stout on tap one of these days. I should ask the bar I go to with a massive draft list to try and obtain it. They have a penchant for obtaining hard to acquire beer.

Have you tried all of the beers I listed from Sam Smith? If they are any indicator of the brews coming from that continent, I need to visit there in the future and just hit every pub I can lol.

Mmmm... Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout on draft... I now consider you spoiled. Easily top of my list for Stouts.

I'd agree I am pretty spoiled for beer here! London's got plenty of brewing history and loads of new craft beer. Plus we can get hold of loads of my favorite US craft beer and Trappist beer, although you can get pretty much anything for the right price in a city like London. Apart from freaking mountains!

As for Sam Smith, I've probably got through most of their beers, and they're pretty damn cheap for London prices which is great. I've definitely had their chocolate and oatmeal stouts. The beers on tap change seasonally and you can get all their beers year round bottled. And the place is like a maze of old wood and glass, really cool pub. Damn it's 9:20 and I want a beer already...

There are a lot of great beers here, but a metric crap-tonne of bad beer too! In my opinion The Kernel brewery have a better stout that's affordable. Dark Star and Windsor & Eton brewery also pretty great new-ish breweries. If you're into the dark beers I think the 3 best stouts I've ever had would be:
Mikkeller - Black Hole (cognac), a Danish beer
Boulevard - The Dark Truth, USA
Brewdog - Tokyo, Scottish Buy Tokyo* | BrewDog Beer , it's 18%ABV so not a session beer

I'm sure I'll miss London when I move to the mountains... Best start looking at where I can get my beer fix!

Just snagged one of these babies...



This is only available one month every year. There are lines of people outside some stores on the day it gets released. The store I went to didn't have any on display. I asked them if they have it and he said "one" and pulled it from behind the counter. I know he had more and was just limiting to one per. 12oz for $10. That's effin steep, but I had to get it. Looking forward to drinking this one, but going to save it for another day.

It's from Founder's which makes another critically acclaimed Breakfast Stout.
