On tap at the Book & Bar, Portsmouth, NH. An attractive deep chestnut colour with a ring of cream head; aroma of coffee and drinking chocolate; rich fruity coffee taste; and a satisfying finish. A really good porter.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance is a pitch black colored body with a slim white one fingered foamy head that drops to a speckled sticky foamy lacing.
The smell has a delicately balanced coffee to chocolate - a nice gentle burnt and roastiness.
The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma with a crisp dry roasty chocolatey aftertaste and just a dry finish.
The palate sits fairly light on the body with a gentle sessionability to it. Carbonation is slightly smooth but also shows some harshness to keep one from pounding it.
Overall, what a nice English Porter, probably the best one I’ve had today by Mayflower as I would definitely have this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GBBF 2013 - London. Pours brown with a light, beige cream head. The nose has toasted brown bread and raisins. Light sweet flavour with dry brown bread and faint, earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish of toasty bread and dirt, along with accents of dark fruits. Solid effort here.
