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.

Moderate malt aroma. Brown color with a small tan head. Light bitter beginning that gets sweet in the middle and fades back to bitter in the finish.

Dark roasted coffee and a bit of smoke in the aroma. Medium to light bodied. Coffee and baking chocolate with a dry roasted finish.

Pours brown-black with a beige head. I smell malt and hints of honey and dark fruit. The flavor is surprisingly much better than the bouquet. I taste balanced cereal, chocolate, coffee, and sweet roasted malts. It’s actually difficult to distinguish distinct flavors, because everything is balanced so perfectly. It finishes with subtle grassy hops and a pleasant soft maple syrup aftertaste.

Bottle from Mayflower Compact Variety Pack in P-Town. Very dark brown, nearly black pour. Thick beige head. The aroma is complex for a porter, toasted malt, coffee, ash, wet wood, and some green herbal hop notes. The mouthfeel is rich and medium to full bodied. The flavor is roasty and woody, quality coffee, prunes, booze. A really nice English style porter.

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.
