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. Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was light of roasted caramel malts, a sort of barnyard scented yeast and strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It tasted slightly sweet and quite flavorful with notes of coffee and caramel at first and then a bitter sweet chocolate/coffee flavor engulfed the taste buds and stayed with you for a nice little while. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice straight forward Porter.

shigadeyo (3180) - 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.

tfontana (78) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2015
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.

Dark pour with thin tan foam. Heavy roasted aroma, turning chocolate semisweet in the sip. Light, clean finish. Pretty tasty!

growler6 (46) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2015
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.

Draft. Pours deep ruby brown with a beige head. Moderate roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, grainy notes, and a clean malty finish. Good stuff, not too sweet.

Lukaduke (2566) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a deep burnt umber with a touch of amber on the edges. Nice balance of roast ad bittersweet chocolate. Soft carbonation and a nice smooth flavor profile. Good porter.

60minuteman (1004) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Dark black porter. Tiny bits of off white head. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, malts, hops, burnt toast and barley. A good combo for a porter. Taste has bits of pineapple, roast, and dark acidic coffee. A little thin, flavor is well balanced but tapers off from dark to sweet rather abruptly.
