3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Very dark brown with a fair amount of carbonation. There’s a lovely thin layer of light tan head. Liquorice dominates the nose, but there is some black coffee and raisin as well. Taste starts quite sweet - again very liquorice-y - but turns to a bitter finish with some gentle hops. Long lip-smacking finish. Medium body. Fairly standard porter but done well.

Appearance - close to opaque black with a decent fawn head.
Nose - coffee and dark chocolate. Light smoke.
Taste - general mocha thing going on
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - better than expected.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Aroma of cocoa powder, chocolate and Twiglets. Flavour of liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. A bit thin and weak but the aroma is nice.

500ml bottle. A flavoursome and smoky porter. Way better than Guinness so why not give it a try?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Dark brown beer, white foam. Slightly high carbonation. Interesting, liquorice, hint blackcurrant, some ever so slightly harsh charry burnt malt, a tad sour. Shep Neame house character evident but seems to fit well. This exceeded my expectations.

Deep dark brown/cherry color with strong brown foam. Aromas of roasted malt, smoke and sweet. Palate, medium body, not the thickest texture, with nice long lasting smoky finish. Taste, bitter, smokey,malty and liquorice. Not bad, interesting and quite nice porter, would buy again.

Bottle, 500ml. Dark brown colour with a red hue. Malty chocolate aroma with musty leaves. Flavour is fairly sweet, malty with more leaves and a moderately bitter finish. Some citrus and coffee notes. A bit overcarbonated for my liking. Not bad.
