COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in filtered 500ml bottles at Sainsburys supermarkets as part of their Taste The Difference range.
A rich, dark beer packed with intense flavours of chocolate and spicy liquorice. This style of beer was very popular in London during the 18th century and can trace its roots back to 1720. It is brewed with charred malt and English hops to give a truly unique flavour. This is Shepherd Neame’s delicious interpretation of this classic beer.

Gleboki ciemny kolor ,szczatkowa brazowa piana ktora znika natychmiast. Wyrazna nuta karmelowa przewaza nad czekolada. Nic specjalnego.

Bottle courtesy of Mike. Pours mahogany with a small frothy beige head. Peppery coffee aroma. The aroma is lightly spicy with some nice coffee and liquorice flavours. The body is pretty thin, but otherwise quite an enjoyable one.

jamaty (2237) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2015 Casi negra. Escasa espuma. Aroma tostado con notas de café y vainilla. En boca equilibrada y muy bebible. Malteada, tostada, chocolate y algo espaciada y ahumada. Final seco y moderadamente amargo.

Bottle from Sainsbo’s, Chillesden Green. Deep brown with a tight tan head that quickly dissipates. Plenty of ashy roasted nuts on the nose. Hints of acidity. Some red fruit. Flavors skews bitter/dry. Sort of thin. Plenty of coffee, ash, and little else. Light body, prickly carbonation. Not one I’d quickly return to.

DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Light aroma and strong taste of the distracted chefs boiled dry pan burnt vegetables. Minimal lacey off white head over reddish dark brown beer. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Burnt malt, herbal bitterness (I’m not getting the licorice in this one!?). Medium dry finish of damp bonfire smoke. Fascinating.

Clear, dark, red-brown beer with a thick, beige foamy head. Malty, spicy smell. Flavour is smoky malt and light, sweet chocolate. It’s ever so slightly watery in the mouth but it’s a perfectly serviceable porter.

Bottle from Sainsburys Team Valley. Pours deep black with decent tan head. Rich, dark flavour - a little dry, roasted malts, little hint of chocolate. Very nice indeed

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. What a pleasant surprise! Pours Black with ruby tint, single finger, off white head. Aroma of cream, malts, chocolate, coffee. Taste of initial cream, then light smokiness, malts-biscuity, caramel, toffee, dark fruits then come in, then chocolate, light carbonation and then coffee and smoky creamy finish. Rate this!
