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.

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 (4135) - 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.

Look: Pours with a large thick equal brown head, mostly lasting. Some carbonation visible. Dark brown, black chocolate color, with amber notes. Excellent lacing. Looking like it should.

Smell: Delightfully roasted, sweet, smooth. There is dark and some milk chocolate to be found, caramel, some mild coffee, toffee. Pretty much what is expected to be. Lovely.

Taste: Milk chocolate, lightly roasted, moderate sweet middle caramel malt, light bitterness towards the end. Alcohol not detected. There are some interesting Brie cheese notes to be found too. Light note of earthy and leafy hops bitterness also.

Mouthfeel: Smooth medium body, medium carbonation. Would love to see it a bit creamier.

Overall: Smooth and classy but relatively straightforward. Good representative of the style.

martjoobolut (793) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2013
0,75L bottle, BB 05.2014. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and lighter tan head. The head stays. Aroma of malt, roast, hints of chocolate. Taste follows the nose: strong black malt, roasty, little chocolate. Lively carbonation. Overall: really nice porter, but could use little “tuning” to be really great.
