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.

Poured dark brown, minimal head. Aromas mostly of roasted malts and subtle dark fruits. Flavors of sweet roasty malts and some mineral and earth notes. Not as full bodied as i was expecting but still maintained a great balance.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Pours a weak coffee color with a short-lived creamy head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate, with a distinct nutty chalky character. Good roasted malts. Sweet and smoky, with a dry finish. Lots of chocolate in the flavor. Prunes and dates. If this beer had more alcohol, it would be even better - this would really be awesome with a creamier mouthfeel. Nice clean beer, and very drinkable.

nimbleprop (6160) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Poured a watery, fizzy looking caramel brown color with a fizzy white head. Smells extremely malty, malt is the only aroma I can get with maybe a touch of nuts. Initial flavor is sweet like dark candy and root beer, with nutty and woody touchesLasting finish of coffee and heavy malt. Doesn’t look or smell great, but tastes pretty good.

larsga (6816) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2007
Big coarse light brown head doesn’t last. Deep dark red barely translucent body. Fruity metallic sweetish earthy spicy licorice aroma with wooden vinuous notes. Quite complex. Sweet burnt peppery taste of wood, roasty malts and licorice with metallic notes. Strange, unbalanced mouthfeel. Dry, peppery roasty medicinal aftertaste. Very nice, and quite strange. (0.75l bottle.)

Does not follow stlye guidelines for ADD beer drinker. Have to pay far too much attention to details that seem to flit away as does the remainder of my brain ... Decent body - on tap and though I didn’t really note such, was told that "it’s starting to go south". Hell, it made it to Texas. After going through porters, stouts and brown ales and saying "roasty" and other rubbish. I’ll leave it to you to see if you like it. I thought it was fine if not super fine.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2007
Brown/black with a nice head. The aroma has nice notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The mouthfeel is semi-oily and the flavour has like the aroma mainly chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of licorice. It has a nice bitterness. It’s a really nice porter, but if I were to drink the entire bottle myself, I think it should be a bit to monotonous and lack complexity.

Braudog (6041) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2007
Caged and corked 750ml bottle; The initial pour produced a nice solid topping of foam (subsequent pours weren’t quite as productive). The beer itself is deeply crimson-brown and light struggles to penetrate it. Although a bit chalky, the aroma is one of a nice bitter chocolate. There’s a bit of the chocolate on the tongue, as well ... with twists of strawberry licorice, espresso, and a tight finish. This is some good stuff. (#2767, 4/1/2007)

750ml bottle enjoyed during the 3rd annual St. Pat’s day celebration. Pours clear and very much reminds me of maple syrup with a light head. The aroma is nice with roasted malt and molasses. Flavor is lightly sweet with roasted malt and molasses just as the aroma suggests, though there is more of a sweetness than I would have imagined. Well balanced and blended hops. Fairly light bodied…balanced comes to mind again. Very drinkable.
