73An enjoyable bottle-conditioned porter that, on this tasting, just lacks a little carbonation.

Meantime London Porter
85Complex – far more than a straight roasted-grain-dominated porter – but easy-drinking, despite its obvious strength. Good light body, too, and splendid corked-bottle presentation.

Nethergate Brewery Umbel Magna

Nethergate Brewery Umbel Magna
78Some might find the coriander just a touch too heavy as a flavouring for this rich, malty, bottle-conditioned porter, but it's a very pleasant creation.

83An exceptionally sweet Czech porter – complex and packed with flavour.

RCH Old Slug Porter
Tastingbeers.com Recommended - Winner

RCH Old Slug Porter
80A bitter ruby beer with a pronounced roasted malt character and little in the way of sweetness. However, the light, airy body makes it very easy to drink.

Samuel Adams Holiday Porter

Samuel Adams Holiday Porter
Refreshing, winey taste. Lots of roasted malt character yet a light and medium body. Very drinkable. Chocolate dominates the aftertaste.

Shepherd Neame Original Porter

Shepherd Neame Original Porter
75Well balanced, with pleasant, wintry flavours, although perhaps lacking a bit of body, as it dries quickly.

St Peter's Old-Style Porter
Tastingbeers.com Recommended - Winner

St Peter's Old-Style Porter
80As its name reveals, this is a porter produced the old way, by blending aged beer with a younger brew. It's full of flavour, yet well balanced. A good, hefty, ultimately bitter porter.

Wolf Grandma's Rich Porter

Wolf Grandma's Rich Porter
75A porter from Norfolk, infused with cloves, which are not particularly noticeable. It develops into a good, bitter drink with a dryness that draws you back for more.
