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.

BeerBaboon (1485) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Pours dark brown with light beige head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted. Flavour is roasted and coffee. The chocolate and coffee notes are very subtle and mostly this is just rather roasted. It’s pretty good but very simple and could use a touch of something. Also, a little more body would do this good.
