A Porter of true character, made with only the finest malted barley for a firm, bitter flavour.

Slightly weak smell, coffee, roast barley. Nice porter taste with chocolate but partly ruined by too much carbonation.

A very nice offering from Shepherd Neame. Very smooth, lovely, velvety mouthfeel, good carbonation, fine aroma, what does a good porter need more? Well, the label mine came with (not the one on the accompanying picture) was a bit cluttered, with maybe a tad too much suggestive ("rich, spice, chocolate") wording of the porter-clichť-kind. Donít pay attention to it, this is a very good beer.

500ml bottle from Asda, Dunbar. pours dark brown with decent tan head. Lots of roasted coffee in the aromas, some caramelized sugar. Taste has a good roasted bitterness and more coffee. A little thin, but otherwise not bad.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2013
(Bottle): Pours almost black with medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, some light hints of nuts. Taste is mostly roasted malt base with coffee and dark chocolate. Some moderate bitterness to go along with it. Not bad, quite a basic porter.

Pretty good actually. Some chocolate and a nice richness to it. I do like porters. I drained my first. Thereís something warm and comforting about them. Whitechapel Road. £4. Next to either -£200 or a chance. I rather take a chance, though that depends on what itís on, if itís on the chanteurs of Abba-esque Iíll send the £200 to wherever it needs to go.

Chocolatey aroma which is a lovely thing, extremely dark ale almost black in colour, the head is frothy but dies down quickly very dry taste but medium bitterness, light sweetness as an undertone. medium body, soft carbonation, long finish,
