Mackeon (48) - - DEC 22, 2013
A very nice offering from Shepherd Neame. Very smooth, lovely, velvety mouthfeel, good carbonation, fine aroma, what does a good porter need more? Well, the label mine came with (not the one on the accompanying picture) was a bit cluttered, with maybe a tad too much suggestive ("rich, spice, chocolate") wording of the porter-cliché-kind. Don’t pay attention to it, this is a very good beer.

500ml bottle from Asda, Dunbar. pours dark brown with decent tan head. Lots of roasted coffee in the aromas, some caramelized sugar. Taste has a good roasted bitterness and more coffee. A little thin, but otherwise not bad.

(Bottle): Pours almost black with medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, some light hints of nuts. Taste is mostly roasted malt base with coffee and dark chocolate. Some moderate bitterness to go along with it. Not bad, quite a basic porter.
