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.

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

12oz bottle from a wine store less than a mile from the brewery. Pours dark brown, almost black with a chocolate milk head that has only traces of lacing and is relatively short lived. The aroma is overwhelmingly malty with a touch of smoke. Solid body with only the slightest hint of carbonation. Very enjoyable. Malty with a hint of dark chocolate minus the bitter finish. The finish was long and subtly sweet. Very enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Pours dark brown with modest tan head. Roasted malty nut aroma with toffee overtone. Medium body is velvety; finishes with a hint of smoke. A classic porter.

Pours a clear dark brown with beautiful ruby highlights and a creamy off white head that dissipates but never really goes away. Smells of chocolate and roast Yum! Tastes of chocolate, roast, and a bit of hop bite with a lingering roast in the finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, medium body, light but ample carbonation. Great porter! Smooth and silky and chocolaty. Must try more Mayflower.

a pint at American Craft in Brookline. You know I was not expecting a lot from this since it seemed to be one of the more straight forward beers on the menu at the restaurant but that is exactly why it is so good. A black beer with a thin head, the smell of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of coffee. I know those are so common of descriptors for a porter but the amazing thing is that they were all there and balanced. The taste was a slight sweetness but with a full bitter malt body that went down easy and made me continue to want more. A great example of what is a straight forward wonderful style of beer.

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.

Bottle courtesy of Largiari. Dark red pour. Very dark but has reddish notes through the light. This porter smells amazing. Lovely sweet chocolate with coffee roast. Very nice. Taste is upfront bitter roast. Some dark chocolate feeds it also. I like this a lot.
