COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaailable on Keg and in 750ml bottles.
George Washington was a big fan of imported English Porter. By 1769 he'd lost his taste for British beers. After all, it was keeping the Redcoats fighting. Our Porter is based on a recipe from 1750. We bring you the original aromas and flavours of the beer that made London the world's brewing capital, flavours we know Washington would have loved. Time, care and attention have enabled us to produce a blend of beers bringing you the flavour of the 1750's. Share this beer with friends and enjoy with barbeques, fish or shellfish. The ruby colour & bottle conditioning are proof of its heritage and authenticity.

Good but odd for a porter. Dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is musty choxolate. Taste is a funky porter. Interesting.

campbega (70) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Very different porter, served in a pretty innovative and unusual bottle. Nice chocolatety flavours that you’d expect of a porter and smooth finish but really not a patch on the Fuller equivalent

Thanks to JefVerstraete @ RBBWG 2014! Pours brown with orange highlights and a tan head. Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, licorice. The taste follows the nose ending with some char and dry. Light/Medium body with nice carbonation

hohops (278) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle poured into a snifter. Very, very dark brown, almost black but not quite. 1 finger of a creamy mocha head which gradually fades. Aroma- very nice with lots of coffee, bit of chocolate, roasty bitterness. Taste is slightly creamy with burnt malts, milky coffee, burnt toast, long-lasting finish full of coffee bitterness. A really good porter.

18/I/14 - 75cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 28/II/2014 (2014-91) Thanks to JefVerstraete for sharing the bottle!

Clear brown beer, aery irregular beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: grains, hay, cow fodder, some chocolate, mocha, coffee. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: malty, grains, mocha, toast, little bitter, cow fodder. Aftertaste: burnt toast, pretty hoppy, grains, cow fodder. Very Anglo-German profile, but not too bad.

77ships (3693) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to JefVerstraete. About 2 years old. Pours a red hued, dark brown, small head. Smells rather sweet, roasted malts, light smoke, bitter coffee grounds. Taste is full of smoke, bitter herbs, touch tangy, roasted malts, leaves, bitter, touch bitter coffee grounds. Touch lighter body, bit oily. Not really inline with my personal preferences, the bitter roast & smoke isn’t really off-set by anything and didn’t really work for me flavour-wise.

75cl. Bottle. Pours almost clear dark ruby brown with tan head. Aroma sweet, chocolate, roasted, caramel, hints of coffee, Taste chocolate caramel sweet, burned coffee bitter. Mouth-feel thin. Nice porter. Maybe to much burne in the taste.
