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.

shadey (1909) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Very dark brown almost black pour with a nice mocha creamy head. The aroma is roast and chocolate. The flavor is very well blended smooth dark malt and roast. The acid is slight and the sweetness counteracts it. A very nice porter. If this was common in the 1750, those folks were lucky.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2006
This is a very smooth and gentle porter, nice mouthfeel with just the right levels of carbonation and roasted acidity. Semi sweet chocolate and creamy coffee, a little bit of sweet fruitiness comes through as it warms, not overly complex, but worth trying.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 16, 2006
This corked and caged bottled brew poured a large sized head of foam under a frothy top of fine to large sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a semi-transparent dark ruby red brown colored softly carbonated body. The aroma was mild with sweet dark malty notes. The mouth feel was smooth initially and tingly in the finish with a mild sweet mild hop aftertaste. The flavor was thin with malty slightly hoppy mild dark malt notes.

harrisoni (14021) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
75cl bottle from Sainsbury. What a surprise this was on a Monday evening to find this and the IPA in my local store. Very dark brown colour with thick lasting beige head. Choc/coffee/dry charcoal. Intense flavours in the mouth. Good fruit, black cherry, plum. Really like it. Bit too carbonated.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2006
A refreshing porter taht will complement many foods very well. Very dark brownish red body with a thin head. Caramel and cocoa in the aroma. Pleasantly malty. Slightly sweet with lactose, but a smooth, refreshing clean finish.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2006
Black red-ish colour. Thin beige head. Acidic and fruity with som burnt notes. Acidic in flavour as well with hints of malt. Dry finish.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle: Ruby brown, not as dark as suspected, thin off-white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready aroma, not very roasty, otherwise semi-sweet.   Fairly sweet malty flavor, semi-sweet roasted malt, not sour like the London style.   Low hop profile, unlike most PNW styles.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes semi-sweet, very pale roasted malts, somewhat like a belgian in its sweetness.   Not heavy, fairly light in fact.   Thanks to the real Larry for this one!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Not too shabby. A thin beige head rested atop a dark brown body. Aroma held notes of smoke, dried fruit, hops, roasted malt, chocolate, toasted nuts. Medium body and smooth feel. The flavor had some sweetness balanced with a dry and bitter finish.

blankboy (6226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & Dave B. -- courtesy of Dave B. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Dry aroma of roasted malt, fruit and chocolate. Flavour’s also dry and roasty along with some yeast, coffee and a nice slightly hoppy and chocolatey finish. Medium bodied. Pretty different then what I expected from a "London Porter" and although it was quite simple, it was very pleasant.
