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.

Nice surprise. Matt at the beverage depot showed me this, Had I had it? Well. no! Pour was a dark brown with red highlights. Nose was malty with soem unexpected fruit in there. Very nice and different from your typical porter.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Dark copper color, untypically light considering the style. Jammy fruits in the nose, with hints of plums and berries, not your typical chocolate, coffee porter aromas. Caramel flavors abound, with a variety of fruits. Nice flavor, with a mild body.

Bottle. Chestnut color with an off-white head. The taste is a sweet roasted and light malty body. Has a dry light bitter palate.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a transparent dark amber brown with a thin lightly-lacing tan head. Not very dark for a porter. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and milk chocolate with a touch of green English hops. Starts with a nice sweet dark caramel malty body with good viscosity and a smooth lightly bittersweet finish with some lingering chocolate chip cookie dough flavor. Very nice and drinkable, just not as roasty and dark as I’d expected.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma. The flavor of the roasted malt stands out more than the aroma and picks up a bit of smoke also.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Well, quite good - at the end of the bottle. The pop was subdued on the cork so I was worried, and indeed the beginning of the bottle was a bit watery, frothy-headed, and there was a little bit of cardboardy oxidation. Smoke, earth and the slight nut of a brown was mixed with a good heaping of London Chocolate stylings. Seemed to be unfiltered, and there was a softness with the slight yeast pour that made it all come together well. Not great, but good.

heemer77 (5101) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2005
A large dissapointment after enjoying their IPA. The body was dark amber with a light tan head. The aroma was roasted toffee, iced tea and some chocolate. The taste was tart with apples and caramel. There was also some green gooseberries. A strange porter. some lightly sour taste, possibly an infection.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Bottled. A slightly muddy very dark brown coloured porter which has a slight tan head. The aroma is fairly sweet with caramel notes. There is also a smoky coal character. The taste is a litle oily with slight roasted malt character and a smoky fishy character. A long, reasonably complex finish with a little chocolate late on. Score 3.6
Subsequent rating scored 3.7. Score unaltered
