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.

I smell chocolate in this beer. Its a dark brown with a nice creamy brown head. Taste a dark chocolate and slight bitter taste. Its medium bodied with a little nutty flavor. Not a bad porter. Worth a buy.

Hints of coffee and chocolate. A bit thin and lacks a body. Overall a decent porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 mL bottle shared at a tasting on February 17. This is quite different than what I’ve come to expect for a porter. The pour is a medium to light brown, almost ruby, with a smaller tan head that lingers around a bit, with minimal, spotty lace. The aroma is quite bland. There is a little hint of chocolate, and an inkling of coffee, but nothing else. The flavor matches the aroma to a tee. The mouth feel is thin, slick, and the aftertaste does finish with a nice light chocolatey dryness, which is one of the best qualities of this one

On tap. Pours black with light white head. Aromas of dark chocolate and dried coffee. Flavors of black coffee, cocoa and roasted barley . Very dry. A tad metallic. Very nice.

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

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 (297) - 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.
