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.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF.
Almost black brown with a thin tan film. Dry and roasted, good malt and chocolate and bitter coffee notes. All the boxes are ticked, it just fails to excel. Decent, not amazing.

jeckenroth (121) - Reading, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2008
12oz bottle from a wine store less than a mile from the brewery. Pours dark brown, almost black with a chocolate milk head that has only traces of lacing and is relatively short lived. The aroma is overwhelmingly malty with a touch of smoke. Solid body with only the slightest hint of carbonation. Very enjoyable. Malty with a hint of dark chocolate minus the bitter finish. The finish was long and subtly sweet. Very enjoyable.

mcox90 (1622) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear cola like brown with red edges. Small tan head and no lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with chocolate notes. Palate is smooth, but a bit on the dry side. Beer has good body to it. Flavor is dry chocolate and coffee as well as malts and a hint of hops with a slightly bitter finish. This is a good sessionable porter. I found this at Julio’s Liquors and was told this company had recently begun bottling their beers.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF2008. A black beer with an off-white head. The aroma is smoky and roasty. Dry in the mouth with early burnt malts fading to an over thin finish.

Fin (7915) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2008 Pours black with next to no head. Hoppy and sweet but with a subtle sweet cherryness coming through, this went very well with my wild boar pork pie that I had just purchased.

Courtesy of Fishingnet. The aroma is lightly fruity with noticeable smoky notes and mildly boozy accents. The body is dark brown and holds a smallish tan head. Sweet smoke and chocolate fore. Very creamy mouth feel. Dark fruit finish. Not bad.
