I don’t think its supposed to be classed as a porter but thats how it felt. Dark rich notes, like a deep sherry…
Me and my pal used to neck a lot of guinness – and this in particular was very exciting for me.
However, this is not the beer he was referring to, and I am still hoping to get my hands on what he was referring to.
However, I’ll give this a go.
Rather plain in comparison to the usual hard hitting guinness… Pretty good hops and some good old biscuits…. Feels like its a middle man, between the classic and the new age… Slightly disappointing in all honesty.
However, It is not a great beer. I t could be, but there is far too much emphasis on the honey for my liking.
Its almost impossible to give any review on this beer as the honey outweighed anything else on offer.
Sorry for such a crap review, but it is honestly like drinking a hot toddy but without the hot, the whisky and the cold….
Decently available dark beer with plenty of character.
Not a massive disappointment and neither a huge beer of the month. Its an all round decent beer. slightly bitter, with the off scent of some nuts – and biscuits.
Quite fruity and, but a lack of hops or malt in my opinion….
BUT, if you needs some beers and you can find them cheap enough, then they make a fairly good session beer.
This one is pretty decent actually. Its got some nice burnt BBQ flavours, and is not too sour.
It has that nice malty taste, and has also got some nice licqurice flavour, which is always good in my opnion. – probably the reason I quite like it – BUT, I probably won’t be buying it if I see it agaain
Bit like a session beer, and not one I would like to spend a few quid on, more like a £1.20 from Morissons.
It would probably do as a session ale, but as I said, the lack of any depth is a reason to not want…
