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.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 75cl bottle. Malty aroma but little else. Pours ruby colour with tan head. Compared with other ales I have tasted recently, this one was disappiointing in the flavour department. Hints of prunes and coffee; not particularly complex. Quite thin and dull on the palate. The bottle says "Our Porter is based on a recipe from 1750", well, fortunately for me, other ales have moved on since then.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
750ml bottle as in picture. Pours dark brown with a good tan head. The aroma and taste are both dominated by sweet roasted malts. Decent finish and good body. Not the most complex of beers, but very enjoyable.

dwyerpg (5087) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Aroma is not signifcant. The flavor is complex. Caramel, lots of malt, a little graininess in the finish. Excellently flavored and not too sweet. One of, if not, the best porters I’ve ever had.

diabel (1650) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2007
Bottle Clear, dark body. Rocky, brown head. Aroma of burnt malts, liquor, panncakes (with sirupe), ... Lightly sweet, lightly bitter flavour. Quite weak, a bit watery flavour.

Stine (1733) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Tap at the Muddy Pig. Almost black pour, kind of airy and thin. Aroma of cured salami, bonfire and Maxwell House. A swift hint of an empty hoppiness. Plain and uninspiring taste. Tepid qualities of nutty roasted malts and mocha, finishing watery and short. Slippery and somewhat smoky in the mouth. Pretty much right on for style.

ekstedt (6232) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Dark opaque brown. Strongly roasted malt, almost smokey, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied and smooth. Nicely balanced with an initially sweetness that is overtaken by a firm bitterness.

jed314 (6) - Sedro-Woolley, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2007 does not count
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.

Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2007. Dark brown (almost black) - light brown head. Roasted, burned, chokolate, malty, dreid dark fruits, light sweetness, dry, raisins, licorice. Style-clean... spot-on !!

nimbleprop (6651) - 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.
