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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a deep mahogany w/ a medium sized, spattered, creamy froth. Reduces at a moderte pace to reveal a beautifully laced brew. Aroma is malty. Full nectar w/ soft residual effers creating a creamy texture. Very nice indeed. Moderately roasted w/ a full malty backbone. Roasted coffee bean, bakers cocoa, brown sugar, mild caramel. Slight nuances of black cherry and brownies. Finish is perfctly bittered and long on flavor. Nice balance. Overall: drinks like an Imperial style with it’s generous nature but w/o all the extra alcohol. Connoisseurs choice. Highly recommended.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Pours an almost ruby-brown color with nice brown head. Aroma is of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of nuttiness. Taste was cocoa, roasted malt, bit of coffee, and a bit of vanilla. These porter was very light upfront but brought all the porter characteristics to the palate in the finish.

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 30, 2006
750ml bottle at Falling Rock Tap Room - Denver. Very nice mouthfeel, slightly chewy but well-matched with the dry, dark malt flavors.

RobBestwick (587) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2006
Sweet toffee aroma, classic porter appearance, big brown head that disappears slowly, very malty coffee flavours with nutty and treacle hints, well laced, quite a dry palate with a warm, wine-like finish.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 21, 2006
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 (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, 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 (1858) - 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 (6858) - 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.
