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.

Shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. The beer is dark brown, nearing black, with a quarter inch of beige head. The aroma brings roasted malt in the English style, toffee, dark fruits, hints of chocolate. The flavor brings toasted malt, roast, alcohol, toffee. Pretty tasty. Medium to light bodied. Overall, very drinkable and tasty. Would happily throw back a pint of this on another occasion.

Single bottle purchased from Leary’s. Pours a ruby-tinted mahogany which sustained nice lace on the sides of the glass, but no head. Smells pretty Porter-basic; also I detect cucumbers, brown malts, charcoal, soy sauce, browned sugar and booze. Tastes bittersweet with notes of cinnamon, yeast, hops and caramel. By mid-palate it’s hinting at liquorice and molasses. Ends slightly tart. Decent.

12 oz bottle served in a DFH signature glass. Bottled on 12/23/11. Big thanks to Gushue3 (Mike) for the extra. A: Pours a dark black with some dark cherry edges. A light khaki head forms on the pour and recedes to a nice thick collar. S: Nice oaty malts, light green hops and bakers chocolate fill the nose. T: Nice roasted oats up front with a nice chocolate and slight raw coffee bean flavor in the middle. There is a slight hops presence from the nose in there as well. The finish is a dry bitter coffee. M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation. The finish is chocolatey with a mild dryness. O: A very solid porter across the board. Very balanced and the drinkability is solid as well.

Rich coffee and chocolate notes. Nice creamy dark tan head. Good lacing. This is a "need to have" porter.

This is a great Porter. I love it. How do I know when I’ve entered enough characters to reach this silly review limit?

This first thing one will notice is how smokey this beer is. There are the usual toffee/coffee notes as well, but you’d be forgiven for mistaking this porter for a smoked dark lager, which is not too far off anyhow. It’s very dark and heady with crude oil effects on the glass. Sweet barbeque flavor mingles with semisweet chocolate notes for a great taste. Thick and viscous. A serious contrast with old world porters.

Pint at Meadhouse in Cambridge, MA. Near black with a moderate creamy head that collapsed slowly and left spotty lacing. Aroma nutty and burned caramel, slightly smoky. Flavor mirrors with a touch of black coffee layered in.

Thanks to Lunch for this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours black with a good light mocha head and plenty of lacing on the way down. Thin cap for a bit. The nose is really nice with plenty of chocolate along with a good roast balance. Slight coffee in the background. The flavor isn’t as well melded. Too much roast there. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Pretty good.

such an easy porter to drink, sometimes the palate can be a little rough with porters, but the hops are just enough to ease the malts to not be cloying.
