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.

Very attractive almost-black pour. The flavor was intensely roasted grains, burnt caramel, chocolate, and a very prominent smoke flavor in the finish...very nice! The mouthfeel was a tad thinner than I like, but OK. I enjoyed this one a great deal, and would definitely consider it to be repeatable.

Gachupines (1091) - USA - FEB 13, 2007
Dark, almost black with a large tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a roasted, almost burnt smell. Taste Is same as the aroma with a slight hop flavor as well. Personally, I found the body a little thinner than I like in a porter. Otherwise, a good porter but not one of my personal favorites.

c/- Martin @ Twisted Hop. Black with red highlights, poured with a lively carbonation. Full mouth, oily but not resinous. Subtle hints of coffee choclate & treacle. Slight hop bitterness. A joy to drink and it’s travelled well to get here in good shape this side of the world. Cheers Martin.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
Dark reddish brown with a brown head. Chocolate malt aroma. Taste is just right for a porter: chocolate, coffee, liquorice sweetness, ash, not too bitter. Makes a change from the harshness of some stouts.

Pours a deep black color with a thin tan head. Smells of hops, malt, and chocolate. Tastes lightly of chocolate and mostly of hops with a slight licorice flavor. Palette is a bit disappointing because it is so thin. Excellent bottle, decent beer.

bhensonb (12595) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Aroma of chocolate and toasted malt. Maybe some coffee. Hazy dark apricot color (halogen light) and a quickly disappearing beige head that laced a bit. Starts with roasted malt, followed by some chocolate, followed by some coffe, followed by some nice bitterness. Some smokiness comes after awhile, and there is a nice level of bitterness in the finish. Really good. Neither sweet nor dry. Brilliant.
