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.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of beeryum via trade. Big roasted grain aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Pours a somewhat transparent mohogany with a small off-white head. Looks nice, but not at all like a porter. Initial roasted grain fades to a burnt grain and nutty middle. Finishes with a sweet chocolate and light coffee flavor.

aracauna (3145) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2006
This pours a dark mahogany. The aroma is a bit woody with a slight bit of coffee. The body is a little on the thin side, but this is not bad either. Doesn’t quite live up to the beautiful bottle it comes in, though.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2006
not as dark as i had anticipated, and at first i thought it was flat. cork didnt even pop off. malty and roasted up front, slightly hoppy in the end. tan head. not bad. easy to drink, and not bad at all. good beer, dunno if its the best porter out there, and for the money im pretty sure it isnt. still - its worth drinking.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Deep copper highlights on a mahogany base with a creamy head and nice lace. Aromas are a tad musty yet richly malted with caramel and chocolate. Great all-malt flavor is sweet & chocolaty with possible lactose bringing it across like a milkshake. Silky-smooth to boot with a body that is nearly "full". First class.

Corked bottle, 75cl
Dark color; creamy head. Subtle aroma, roasted malt. Better taste, balanced, medium body/malt, good rosted malt.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2006
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.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Corked & caged bottle at rating session in Naples, FL with flemdawg. Tan small head that mostly diminished with fair lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and an orange brown hue. Nose was malty, sweet, chocolate, coffee and some licorice notes. Flavor was licorice, mild coffee, bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel was tingly.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2006
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.
