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.

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

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.

shigadeyo (3296) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2015
Chocolate aroma; black coffee color; rich dark chocolate, smooth coffee, roasted malt, and a touch of smoke; medium full body, smooth; rich and flavorful considering the lower alcohol. Delicious porter.

Bottle from Epsom Circle Market in Epsom, NH. Aroma is roasted malts with chocolate, hints of burnt toast and alcohol. Appearance is dark--mainly black but dark red amber when backlit. Small tan head on pour but dissipates fairly quickly except at edges. Taste is mild up front but moderately bitter with coffee overtones in the middle and mild chocolatey sweetness toward the end and coffee bitterness at the finish, which is long. Palate is just shy of medium bodied--a little lighter than expected and a little more carbonated than expected, with mild-to-moderate creaminess. Overall, there is a lot going on here from start to finish on many different levels. It doesn’t hit a home run on all of them but is well above average and would definitely have again and would recommend.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 Dark pour with thin tan foam. Heavy roasted aroma, turning chocolate semisweet in the sip. Light, clean finish. Pretty tasty! Looking forward to finding this again.

Coffee on the nose. Chocolaty but not too sweet. Warms as it goes down but fades quickly. Not to heavy, smooth for a porter. IMO this is the best beer they make.
