    Behemoth Notella Chocolate Hazelnut Porter Review

    When I heard that Kiwi craft brewery Behemoth had brewed a Notella Chocolate Hazelnut Porter, I had to try it – not because I’m a fan of the choc-hazelnut spread from which it gets its name (I actually hate Nutella) but because I’m a fan of trying new and interesting brews. Let’s check it out… […]
