Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2011
5ooml bottle from ASDA (surprise, surprise!), served cellar cool. Unmistakably a Shepherd Neame Production, which is usually a minus point for me. Aroma of farmyard and leather. Deepest mahoghany, with a tan head that lasts, full bodied with well balanced flavours, not sweet and sticky like some dark beers. Cold black coffee, and leathery, biscuity dryness in the mouth. Soft carbonation suits the style perfectly. I even like the dumpy, chunky bottle!

MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, 5.2%, KØ11. Mild papery aroma. OK roasted flavour, mild and nice. Hint of paper, but not bad.

Not a massive fan of porters due to the coffee flavour which I hate but I have had some mild ones. This is pretty strong. Like a cold cup of coffee. Very bitter lingering finish. Not my bag baby.
