3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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’.
