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.

12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Dark dark brown with lasting tan head and some lace. Chocolatey aroma with mild coffee and fruit. Mildly roasted chocolate with mmedium dark fruit and medium coffee bitterness. Medium body and pretty good smooth texture. A pleasant session porter that I wouldn’t mind drinking all night.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Nose of coffee, roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Initial taste beings with a deeply roasted malt touched my coffee and chocolate. Hints of creamines in the background. Nice robust flavor that is balanced and extremely drinkable. Above average palate duration and head retention. Excellent porter.

Tap @ Cambridge Commons... Poured deep brown with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts and bitter-sweet brown sugars. Smooth palate with flavors of roasted cocoa and coffee with smooth, creamy malts. Finish was candy sweet with a low acidic, hop bitterness.

Black pour wi th tan head and lace. Medium coffee aroma, roasted maltiness, and a hint of sour. Nice coffee with just a bit of sour finish. Medium bodied and a tad foamy. A pretty good beer.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours black (dark brown when held to light) with a dense, creamy, pitted head and sheeting lace. The nose is of coffee, toffee, chocolate and caramel with a touch of dark roast in the background; quite nice. Light to medium-bodied and somewhat creamy with a bitter roasted finish that lingers on the tongue. Dark roast, caramel and coffee with a touch of bittersweet chocolate blend together in the flavor profile, which finishes with bitter roasted malt and a touch of hop bitterness joining in the mix. This is a solid and interesting porter, but I would probably prefer the roastiness of the malt be turned down just a notch. I this beer, but I can’t see myself drinking more than one bottle in a session.

My Million Beer March Tasting. Sample from a bottle shared by me thanks to mcox90. Looks brown with light red in the light and thin off white head. Big roasty aroma, some chocolate. Taste is more roasty, some soy sauce, chocolate, big bitter roast malt astringent finish.

Clear dark brown, no head. Toasty, coffee-ish aroma. Smooth and quaffable for a porter. Flavor has a lot of coffee with hints of chocolate and vanilla.

puboflyons (2120) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Pours from a 12 fl. oz. bottle but I could not find a lot code or expiration date. The label had this old look about it that I kind of liked. The pour is a deep brown with some ruby red when held to the light. There is a decent amount of foamy tan head that slowly dissolves but never really goes away. The aroma is slightly smoked, mildly hopped and has the basics of a good English Porter. Medum mouthfeel.. The flavor has something lightly smoked but also mildly hopped. It isn’t dry but it is fresh. Not a bad experience.

Got this in a trade with ralflord (I think). Dark brown, almost black, not quite. Smells decent, roasty porter. Slightly above average flavor, and very easy to knock back. This would be nice to have a sixers in the fridge. The only problem I had was it seemed thin. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-20-2008 03:58:04
