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.

Another nice brew from meantime. Aroma is that of malts and semi sweet chocolate. Flavor is very much the same. This is a good porter.

Pours dark brown, almost looks like a brown ale rather than a porter. Aroma of caramel and coffee, but rather faint. Taste is about the same, again faint. Palate is thin. Iíd say they took a good porter and watered it down. The IPA was much better.

Body is a foggy dark brown, no head, and looks like very little carbonation. The cork has no pop to it, just like the ipa. Aroma is a bit of caramel, light coffee, mollases. Taste is like a rocky road ice cream, along with a slight alcohol influence and almonds also. Very differant.

Black, beige lasting head. Very impressive appearanec the head is almost as dense ad whipped cream. Mild, friendly aroma with malty sweetness, roasted malts and licorice. Rich flavour with more malts. Roasted bread. Some licorice - and a touch of chocolate too?. Great london porter.

waolsen (1375) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2006
bottle.a very clean brown/red pour with thin tan head. hops, sugar, chocolate, roasted aroma. smoked taste becomes more present in the aftertaste. light body, caramel, sweet chocolate, a little coffee, earthy and slightly metallic. slightly bitter finish. could the commercial description be a little longer? I donít think it got across saying absolutely nothing. This is a descent porter. I was expecting more though.

Looks like a porter. :) Aromas are fantastic, chocolate, cream, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is a tad sweet, super smooth, nice mellow smokey and roasted flavors. Really well balanced. I poured a little on my vanilla ice cream. Delicious.

Bottle. Clear, dark ruby, small off-white, nearly tan head. Head laces well, and looks like icecream on the top of the glass. Aroma is big on malts, bitterness, coffee, chocolate. Flavour is full of chocolate, bags of roasted malt, oodles of coffee, and as it warms up a bit, liquorice. Taste of sweet liquorice lingers, as well as some bite from that bitterness. One of the best porters Iíve tasted in a long time, and I do love my porters!

bottle obtained in trade with kramer17801. Pours a very clear, dark amber color with small tan head and lots of sticky lacing. aroma is full of banana and toffee, very smooth and sweet to the nose with definite malt hints. Flavor is slightly roasty with lots of smooth toffee hints. I wasnít to impressed with the first few sips, but this is definitely a beer that grew on me as i drank more and gave it a little time to warm up. Not what i was expecting for a porter, but enjoyable nonetheless!

bottle. Pours a full, dark ruby with a perserverant tan head. I donít know if Iíve made this clear, but my expectations for dark English ales are usually fairly low. The aroma here is of soy sauce and some coffee, chocolate. Pretty well rounded, actually, in the flavor. Itís nicely smoky, finishes with sweet cigar-like notes. The malts come across like caramel more than chocolate, but a little of both flavors are apparent. The hops make a nice appearance in a mild, palatable fashion to add a little brightness. This is a winner, afterall. Itís more balanced and more robust than many of its English brothers, but not on the level of say, Fullers porter, though.
