Carnegie Porter 3,5

D. Carnegie Porter 3,5

Found this in the local supermarket at the weekend. Even though it`s only 3,5 ABV it`s not bad. At least compared to the piss that usually passes for beer in Sweden.

Just back from meeting Penguin at World Beer Bakusyu in Shinbashi, a bar recommended by John Turningpin who was unfortunately sick and couldn’t join us. (Get well soon, JT).

World Beer Bakusyu

Bakusyu has quite a decent range of beers from around the world. I tried the Anchor Porter and I have to say it’s probably the best dark beer I’ve ever had. Quite surprising, since I’d had the Anchor Steam from the same brewery, when I was in San Francisco a few years ago, and thought it was one of the worst beers I’d ever had.

I’ll definitely be heading back there to drink it again, even though at 1000 Yen a bottle it’s expensive with a capital E.
