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.

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

Tasty porter, thanks Crushinator. Black body with good head of a thousand small bubbles, and lots of lace. Roasty, tarish, coffee ground, then complexity of chocolate malt. The aroma is sour, yeasty. Easy, smooth above average mouthfeel. Carbonation above average. Interesting.

12oz bottle courtesy of Bounty628. Pours a murky dark brown to black with a one finger tan head that settles quickly but laces the glass. Aroma is roasted and malty with notes of ripe dark fruit, caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, fresh grain, some hints of molasses and sight note of coffee grounds. Flavor is also roasted and malty as well with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, hints of caramel, wood and smoke. Generally medium body with a pleasing coffee and chocolate finish. Nice porter.

FlacoAlto (4125) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 A vigorous pour into my New Belgium globe goblet produces a two finger thick, light brown colored head. The beer is quite dark with an almost black color, it shows a brilliantly clear, deep, dark ruby color I held up directly to my desk lamp. The aroma has a nice dark grain character to it with aromas of chocolate, toasted bread crust, browned saltine crackers and burnt grain. The aroma is very malt focused, and pretty smooth for all of its roast grain focus.

Lightly sweet tasting, the beer quickly picks up some dryness from the roast grain flavors. The beer finishes with a burnt grain bitterness, a touch of roasted astringency, some light acidity as well as a touch of roasted vegetal notes, this last is pretty faint thankfully. This has a nice, rich, dark malt character to it that provides a complex sweetness to this brew. The beer is fairly light bodied, which definitely makes this easy to drink, though some of the sharper, roast & acid notes can get in the way of this at times. The sweetness found here evokes thoughts of lightly burnt caramel, perhaps a touch of dark chocolate and some notes reminiscent of lightly roasted coffee beans sweetened with lactose.

Not overly complex, but it does play the dark malt note pretty well. There is not much in the way of hop or fermentation character here, which is definitely ok by me.

Pours light ebony into an English pint. Mocha head recedes to skim surface. Smoked chocolate aromas. Smooth with chocolate and dark caramel upfront and a lasting lightly tangy sweet smoke finish.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Poured a black color with a chocolate milk colored head which vanished almost instantly. Thin on the palate with quite a bit of carbonation. The flavors of roasted nuts, cocoa and a slight bitterness are noted. A pretty good porter, but nothing really out of the ordinary.

SilkTork (5498) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2008
GBBF, Trade Day, 2008 Gravity cask. Flavours all over the place converging on a hot point. Some plastic burn. Thin mouthfeel. Not impressed. Vague stout notes, but nothing decent.
