COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One hundred years after the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, a new beer style emerged in England. Taking its cues from “Three Threads”, a bartender’s blend of three distinct ales, Porter became the beer of choice for 18th-century Londoners. Mayflower Porter embraces this history. This complex brew is smooth and full-flavored with notes of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate that will warm the palate all year long.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Tap at the Mayflower campsite BCTC 09. Pours a nice deep amber-brown with a good sticky head. Aroma is fresh nutty, toast, good fresh chocolate malt, light roast, some grassy and herbal hops and a bready yeast/maltiness. Flavor is sharp bittersweet chocolate, but fresh malts all around and nicely hopped- malt forward and clean finish. Pretty solid porter.

This brew has a near pure black color with a dark caramel colored and thick head. Aroma is of malts, chocolate, toffee, and some coffee. Taste is of malts, dark chocolate, and some coffee. Has a pretty smooth coffee aftertaste. Overall, this is a pretty good porter. Good job Mayflower.

nimbleprop (7465) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Scored this 12oz bottle via trade. Pours a opaque, sorta thick black that had a nice mahogany red around the edges with a creamy, slighty off white head. Aroma is fairly average, sweet, caramel, dough, maybe a bit of vanilla. Flavor is nice, starts with all those toasted malts, nuts, dark chocolate, coffee and ends with some sweetness, milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Finish has a lingering toastiness that is pleasant and warming.

Jayb0 (1161) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2009
This is a pretty decent effort. Nose of light coffee, chocolate and maple syrup. Nice balanced brew restrained in a good way, with nice intermingling or roasted malt and just enough hop bite. Soft. A nice surprise, thanks holdwine.

guzzler67 (1663) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Appropriately dark appearance with a medium size, tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Slightly ashy, chocolate and caramel malt aroma. Flavors of dark bread, coffee and molassas. Sweetness evident throughout but more pronounced in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.
