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.

blankboy (6046) - 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.

Beige, Lacing diminishing head. Dark brown almost black colour. Smells old furnitures and bacon. Taste smokey and dark chocolate. Notes of cofee and a nice warming alcohol feeling.

Bottled. Black, firm beige head. Salt, coffee, licorice, chocolate... in both aroma and flavour. Feels refreshing with a full body.

kramer (4943) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2006
25 oz bottle. Pours a translucent brown with a thinish beige head that receded to a thin covering. Aroma is fairly light with chocolate malt, caramel, dry yeastiness, and some hoppiness. Flavor is fairly hoppy up front for a Porter with alot of chocolate malt, and some toffee and coffee. Finish is dry and a little chalky with some husky graininess. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A little watery late in the finish. Overall, drinkable but not a favorite. The more I had of it though, the more it grew on me.

SSSteve (3769) - - APR 27, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2006 pours looks thin. reddish brown. the head is brown in some areas and white in others. a very hoppy aroma with just a hint of roasty chocolate. very dry and chalky. bitter at first turning sweet. tons of coffee, roasted nut, chocolate, and hop notes. surprisingly robust and med-full bodied even though the aroma was very weak and the pour was thin.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2006
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy and Dave B, Dave’s bottle. Poured very dark mahogany with a huge beige head. Aroma is VERY dry, lots of yeast, toasty malt, plenty of dry UK hops, some appleseed bitterness, with hints of chocolate and coffee, even a bit of lactose - unusual and solid. Taste is similar to the aroma, yeasty and tart apricot on top of the light chocolate - interesting. Mouthfeel is average, roasty - nice. Really liked it, unusual - thanks, Dave!

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2006
The first porter I’ve ever had from a corked 750, not that that makes a bit of difference - deep ruby color, with thin but lasting lace - very dry, espresso-like aroma, with some background date and fig, some chocolate - quite bright and fruity at first, but this settles as a dry, cocoa-like flavor and abundant dark roast coffee settle in - a very gentle, refined, subtle english porter - I like it very much.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2006
Deep brown with a nice tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee and nuts with a little caramel. Flavor is smooth with lots of chocolate and dark malts and coffee with little hops. FInish is still smooth with a bite of bitterness.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 21, 2006
I thought this was great! Soft aroma of toffee and roast, fairly thin pour - brownish crimson. Off the charts drinkability. Lots of coffee, toffee and toasted caramel. Quite quaffable and tasty.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2006
750ml corked and caged bottle - Pours brown with a creamy tan head that stays pretty well and laces the sides of the glass. Aromas of yeast, hops, light coffee, and some roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, caramel, a touch of chocolate and some coffee. Yeast and hops in the fore and roasted malts throughout, but the lingering sweet aftertaste of chocolate and coffee is what you are left with. Palate is medium bodied and somewhat creamy. I found this surprisingly better than I anticipated.
