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.

Half pint pulled on St Patrick’s Day at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London), dark with ruby tints and a thin filmy head. Slightly roasted aroma. Flavour is quite hoppy with some fruit (peach) and roasted coffee undertones all the way through. A zesty/fizzy mouthfeel.

Bottled. 75 cl. Dark brown colour. Lots of EKG(or the likes) hops accompany the yummy chocolate profile in aroma. Smells very much like Dugges Bältesspännaren. Light roasty in flavour with dark chocolate and a bit of dark fruits. Restrained caramel profile and only light sweetish. Long flavour with a nice bitterness. A very hoppy London Style Porter.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2006
From caged corked 750 ml. brown bottle with a blurb about the porter on the back label, no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a hazy rudy hued chocolate brown with a small foamy tan head that reduced to a thin lacing. Had a nice burnt chocolate aroma, a mild vanilla scents, a roasted caramel maltiness, and a buried fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and a smooth, lightly creamy mouth feel, very good drinkabillity. A good burnt chocolate malty taste, a twanging fruity hop bite in the middle, and a dry, earthy chocolate finish, delicious.

pilsnerrogge (2538) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2006
Deep ruby, almost black colour. Nice head. Very roasty, almost smoked aroma with notes of toffee and cocoa. Flavour is very roasty, yet balanced. A pleasant porter.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Picked this up for $10.99. Luckily I had my roomate to help me on it. Poured ruby dark, almost a light coffee colour. Head is rich and creamy. A bit more carbonated than I would have liked and a bit light on the palate. It was lacking that porter thickness in all. Taste boils around some bubbly dark and semi sweet chocolates with a bit of a milky way minus the galaxy. Roasted malts worked their way back and forth between the warmth of the alchohol. Doesnt bite too bad. Had this beefed up a bit for beach season in the antartic, it would have been almost a competitor to Fullers....

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2006
Fine light tan head, brown body - too light for my likings. Sweet chocolate aroma with malty and grassy notes and a cheesy hint underneath. Roasted malt and a bit of chocolate and coffee in the flavor, quite sweet and pretty full. Easy, but tasty and a beer I could easily drink a couple of pints of.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Poured a clear dark brown color. Aroma and flavor was a match for the most part. Roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet. Light to medium bodied. Decent porter.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Mahogany with ruby-redd edges when backlit. Huge off white head. Aroma is all roasted grain up front, with ahint of smokiness in the background. Flavor much the same, roasted grain turns smoky through the middle and finishes with a big sweet malt kick. Reminds me of a really sweet nut brown instead of a porter.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 5, 2006
750 ml corked & caged bottle from Steve’s (Mineral Point Road) in Madison, WI (Dec 2005). Cellar temperature, Samuel Smith pint glass. Despite a total lack of sound when I removed the cork, there is carbonation evident in the pour, with a gout of foamy, moderately long-lasting tan head atop a murky brown-black body....at first the aroma was really indistinct, a bit soapy and anise-scented, but some light chocolate tones do develop, but overriding it all is unfortunately slippery detergent....thankfully there is improvement on the tongue, chocolaty-roasty character sweetens but remains a bit acidic and robust....the body is on the thin side for a porter I think, and the milkiness while not unpleasant doesn’t have much to work with....a warmed-up watery milkshake with just a touch of boiled coffee grounds added. Overall, it doesn’t add up to much and is a big disappointment, given the expensive fancy bottle and all.

This bottle was provided by, and shared with thedm and hotsuff. A bron bidy with a big light brown head. The aroma had some cocoa hints as well as some woodiness with molasses and caramel. The taste was a bit watery and had some cocoa and caramel. Nothing outstanding but not revolting either.
