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

Bottle. AROMA: toast, roasty, hint of coffee, chocolate, APPEARANCE: black, minimal head, TASTE: medium bitterness, lightly sour, PALATE: light body, thin feel, lively, bitter, dry OVERALL: little to know aroma, has hints of aroma/tastes of a porter but lacks body and character. Finished half of a pint.

Bottle...from ASDA obviously. This is very thin for a porter and there was not enough roasted malt flavor for my taste.

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Light dry palate. Mild dark malt with traces of roast and coffee. Some sweeter malt as well and a little bubblegum ester underneath. Dry finish with a bitter malt and hop snap. Too dry, but okay.

Bottle. Almost black beer. Aroma of chococoffee. The taste is of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and greek coffee. Typical of the Porters I am used to. The palate is a little weak however. Overall a good beer, a style I like.

Okay, let’s deal with the elephant in the room. I went here to get a Caesar salad. The assistant said they didn’t stock it in this branch but he would phone the Cov Rd store and they would put one on the side for me. 5 miles for a bag of salad. Not for me, thanks, but cheers for the offer. That was Thursday. Today is slightly fizzy chocolate flavoured porter day. I wouldn’t drive 5 miles for this either. Got the salad from Sainsbury in the end.

I’ve recently tried a lot of different ales but this one really stood out amoungst the rest for me. It has an almost chocolatey/coffee taste to it. Very dark in colour. It’s one of those ales you could sit and drink all night.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Dark as the night this one comes with dark chocolate aroma and a bit coffee. Still very drinkable and quaff. Nice :-)

McTapps (5014) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle bought at Asda, shared with hubby. Turned out to be the best beer from Sheperd Neame until now.... Aroma of sweetened espresso. Taste of black coffee (European style, not the one you get in the UK) and roasted nuts. Easy to drink, really nice.
