They showed us the 1909/10 labels they based these on. They weren't Shepherd Neame ones.

Well, if the DP means I can get what is essentially a draught pint of Extra stout (including, crucially, a lack of nitro treatment) in 'ordinary' pubs I'll be pleased. Cheers for the info.

3.8% for the Porter, I would say that would put it at the later end of the 20th century.[/quote:1lqj9f65]
Both beers are far too weak. Nice labels, though and I wouldn't mind trying them.

The archivist gave us a look at the original logs from 1796 and 1801 last night. They'd be well worth getting in touch with if you want a look, Ron. Especially now that they're pushing the historical stuff more, even if it's just for marketing reasons.
