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.

Dark brown with a tan head. Burnt malts and coffee come at the nose. The taste is a little too burnt for me. It’s a little thin for a porter and lacks balance, got an unpleasant feeling from the bitterness and lack of depth. I look forward to trying their other offerings though.

Bottle. Light brown pour. Below average mouthfeel and body. Light roasted malt notes. Pretty lifeless and uninspiring.

Pours brown with a thin light brown head that dissipates quickly. Nice aromas of molasses, smoke and burnt caramel. Nice balance of sweetness with bitter chocolate in a light to medium body, somewhat slick mouth feel, with average carbonation and a bitter finish. Pretty good.

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.
