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.

12oz bottle. Very drinkable porter. Somewhat on the thin side for a porter but it doesn’t hurt the overall quality. Slight smokiness along with subtle hints of cofee and chocolate.

OldGrowth (3240) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2009
bottle, from Julio’s. Good aroma, sweet, roasty, chocolate, caramel. Orangy brown color, small, but solid head, ok lacing. Sweet bitter flavor. Lite, yet very creamy smooth mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish, Very nice porter, great on the palate, real nice flavor. This one hit me just right, could drink this year round...

[bottle] Iced hazlenut coffee aroma with some molasses and a touch of American hops. Almost opaque, clear garnet black with some quickly descending tan foam. Flavour is sweet molasses with coffee, tobacco, and raisins. Low bitterness, slightly chalky. Medium body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter, dry coffee finish.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Cherry-like fruitiness accompanies roasted flakes and chocolatey touches in this well attenuated, soft Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A hefty head of foam dwindles into the mahogany-laced blackness.
-The body is rather lean, and carbonated with big bubbles, making for easy drinking.
-Pumpernickel bread flavors are apparent throughout.
-The finish is lightly roasty and sweet, fittingly concluding this clean Porter for neophytes.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Another tap in the Mayflower and homebrew area at BCTC. Pours a crystal black with a touch of a thin tan head. Smoke and coffee, roast and caramel. Thin to medium bodied with some nice roast complexity going on. Could stand to be a bit thicker, but otherwise fairly solid.

Tap at BCTC 2009: Rusty brown pour with a khaki consistent film of head. Nutty aroma with some cocoa as well and a touch of yeast esters. Creamy silky feel. Toasted nutty flavor with cocoa notes and again some fruity hop notes. Toasted finish. A nice Porter.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2009
Brown with a small light brown head. Fruity malt aroma with a touch of smoke. Sweetish roasted flavour, with licorice, wood and a hint of peat smoke.
