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 am a fan of porters and this one was quite interesting to me. The color was not black, it was a deep brown, almost like stained wood. I was expecting a weak porter. Not the case. Full and deep porter flavor, but not as much viscosity as I am used to, making this a uniquely robust, but drinkable porter.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2006
750ml corked bottle. Pops open with an appetising gust of deeply smoky malt, boozy espresso and sticky licorice. Black pour with dark ruby tints. An intensely roasty interpretation with some smoky coffee and charred raisiny fruit. Lingeringly bitter at the back of the tongue. Quite a creamy palate. Some subtler toffeeish flavours emerging as it warms, despite the brewer’s recommendation to chill it. Pleasant enough, but little overwhelmed by that roasty bitterness.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2006
Bottle. Chestnut coloured with a slim beige head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee. Same elements in the taste; plus a smokiness and some dark fruits. Nice light roasted and bitter finish. Very nice smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel and very drinkable. Excellent.

bb (6726) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle. Ruby-brown beer with a tan head. Chocolate aroma with some coffee, roast and sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel with chocolate and sweet malt starting and fading to more roastiness and nutiness and a touch of bitter hops. Roasty, slight smokiness lingering. Medium body. Solid porter.

cyanescens (159) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Pours much a lighter brown than expected. The flavor is there and the beer doesn’t drink like a meal, drinkable. I get a smokey, fishy after taste similar to Alaskan Smoked Porter but not as prevalent, which I like alot. This beer would be a good choice for pairing.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Extremely sweet aroma with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Pours a not-quite-black brown with small, white head. Really well developed coffee notes in the flavor. Nice bitter chocolate as well. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say this beer deserves a better rating than a 3.56.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 26, 2006
In the 750 mL bottle from Beertopia. This bottle was so full that there was dried beer around the top of the cork seal and no headspace. Also, there was no pressure under the cork when it was popped. However, my concerns were for naught as the beer poured a beautiful beige head atop a dark brown (not black) beer. The aroma seemed slightly sour, but also the smell of sorhgum. The falcor was delightful: sweet from dense molasses and sorhgum flavors and mildly chocolate. Has a clearly defined bitterness as evidenced by the residual drying bitter flavor in the terminal palate. This was not coffee-like, not was it roasted at all. This is what I want to taste in a true porter. Really nice and I think underrated here at 3.5!

Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, nuts and raisons. Flavor of sweet malt with notes of chocolate, coffee and nuts.

Tmoney99 (10408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Corked bottle from Whole Fodds, Sarasota, FL. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted nutty malt aroma. Medium body. Medium roasted balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer. Solid drinkable beer.
