Guinness West Indies Porter (6%)

West Indies PorterSo, Guinness are the latest in a long line of major breweries to try their hand at “Craft” by digging through their historic recipe books and using a very good looking Olde Worlde label.
This Porter, with its origins purportedly in recipe books from 1801, is packed with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, rum and raisins and a splash of coffee.
You even get a little snap of hoppy hedgerow greenery.
All in all West Indies Porter is a decent bottle of beer, but at £2.62 from my local Tesco it’s damned expensive for a supermarket beer.
