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.

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.

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.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 24, 2013
FROM NOTES: August 27, ’12. From a 750mlbottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Aroma is very roasted, with a dry cocoa note, a nuttiness, and slight caramel notes. A: Pours black with some ruby highlights and a frothy two-finger head that leaves nice lacing behind. Retention is nice as well. T: Follows the nose closely with a more pronounced chocolate taste coming through. P: Light to medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Perhaps a bit to much carbonation for the style. O: A fantastic porter! Great robust roasted flavors with nice complexity and balance albeit a little high on the carbonation. Highly enjoyable porter.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 14, 2013
láhev 750 ml. Aroma je znát po praženém sladu s příjemným karamelovým nádechem. Pěna je jemná, vysoká, nahnědlé barvy a držící. barva samotného piva je temná. Chuť má ve středu příjemný kávový nádech s třešňovými podtóny, okraje jsou znát po praženém sladu, finiš je příjemně kávově hořký s lehkým karamelovým závojem.

Very dark, clear, ruby amber with a 1/4" head cover and full swirls/streaks of lace. Aroma is sweet roasted malt. Taste is the most pure toasted caramel malt possible with a light bittering appearing in the finish and lingering long afterward. This is my idea of how a porter should taste: no fruit, no chocolate/coffee, no spices, just dark malt at its best. This could be the standard by which other porters are measured.

500 mL bottle into a pint glass. Very dark brown with creamy head. Lovely chocolate malt aroma, a bit nutty. Dry, malty, tasty. On the downside it has a slight acidity to it - perhaps a bit of Burton mineral salt (which technically means it can’t be acidic, but bear with me here). Overall though, its quite decent.
