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.

[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 (8736) - 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 (8050) - 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 (11983) - 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.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle thanks to ang, had at mes’s gaff. Alround rating: Roasty dark malts, light coffee notes, small berry fruits kicking in, but fairly light and unexciting. Ang told me he had this in the states on nitro keg, it must taste of nothing once nitro has been added.

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2009
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.
