Bottle: Filtered
Made exclusively for the Asda supermarket chain by Shepherd Neame
A Porter of true character, made with only the finest malted barley for a firm, bitter flavour.

This fine beer may only be bettered by a second. Good head, strong ale but does not compromise the great flavour,

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2003
Rich caramel and coffee aroma. Black hue with a small light brown head. Full flavoured porter with roasted malt, toffee and a hint of chocolate. The finish is dry, long lasting and coffee laced. An enjoyable but not over powering ale this is a little thinner than other porters that I have had. However, this is the type of quality you would expect from Shepherd Neame, I was just a little surprised that a shop like Asda has an "own label" Porter. Let the good times roll eh?

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.

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,

Lovely spicy dark full bodied bitter. So close to that perfect northern ale, Icannot believe it’s an ASDA bottle. Well done asda and well done WHitechapel

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’.

iansonuk (1) - Poole, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2008 does not count
A strong, hoppy ale, with just enough bite to avoid being considered bland. Similar in flavour to Bath Ales’s ’Barnstormer’, (though alas slightly inferior in my opinion).

Deep, dark brown colour with thin creamy head. Some hop citric acidity detectable in the aroma. Flavour has masses of roasted malt and has a hint of coffee in the aftertaste.
