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.

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.

SlovakSniper (4984) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Liquide brun avec mousse beige qui se présente en anneau. Au nez, torréfaction et brûlure maltée, terre et échos chocolatés et caramélisés. En bouche, puissance des céréales rôties dans une mise en scène légère qui est propre au style. Texture agréablement crémeuse. Finale bien amère et persistante. Bon chic, bon genre.

Tap. Very dark brown, tan head, faint roasty nose. Burnt roast flavor, mild malt profile. Decent flavor for more robust traditioanal porter.

What is the difference between porter and stout? I’ve been asking knowledgeable friends and getting fairly unconvincing and unsatisfactory answers. Stout, for so many years, to me was defined by Guinness and Murphy’s, two low ABV, smooth, nitro brews or San Smith’s admirable Oatmeal and Imperial... very dark and with minimal hops. Porter was represented by such things as Narraganset Porter and other mainline American brewers attempts at a darker brew. But, with the craft beer revolution in full swing, stouts, and in particular Imperial Stouts, have headed toward higher ABV, often very high. And the adjuncts! Coffee is black, throw some in! Chocolate is black, throw that in as well. I don’t dig it. But here’s a porter from Mayflower (did the Pilgrims have casks of ale onboard?). Oddly enough, it has that same dark chocolate and coffee grounds flavoring and bitter finish so popular in many Imperial stouts. The ABV is reasonable for a porter, and the flavor is not so overwhelming that I reach for a glass of water between sips. I rate this as pretty good, but prefer a milder, adjunct free dark brew, call it porter or stout or whatever.

Bebum (743) - USA - AUG 14, 2015
Opaque. Full body, intense flavor, rather flat mouthfeel, weak middle, low carbonation and heat, fading flavor in finish. Bitter, off dry, low acidity. Intense coffee flavor, not much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Tap @ Tavern Road in Beantown. Pours dark chestnut or even mahogany brown, tiny tan head. Miniature English pint glass. Nose has a load of tree nuts and a bit of vanilla bean. Palate is more resiny with a little bit of chalk, but a full enough body that it’s still presented well. Dead grass on the aftertaste.
