oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2009

TBone (12477) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Bottled (at Chriso, BB 07/2010). Dark nut brown, steady creamy beige head. Dark wood, some dark malts in the nose. Light coffee, some mentol-fruity hops, roasted. Toasted finish. This is also very Shep Neamish. Not bad, but not the most interesting English-style Porter either.

Gary (1338) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 (Clear glass bottle) Isn’t this stuff just ’Shepherd Neame’ Porter ? Anyway what ever the hell its agreeable -with its rich and bitter qualities -burnt things -probably malts . Good one considering its a lowly beer made by a boring brewery for ’supermarkets’.

500ml Bottle - Very dark brown, almost black, with some red tinges. Light roasted malt aroma with some chocolate and coffee. Roasted taste with chocolate and a hint of coffee. Fairly smooth.
