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.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 10, 2005
Darkish, ruby-brown body with a nice toasted, off-white head comprised of very tiny bubbles that lasts for a bit. Aroma is full bodied chocolates and coffee, very hoppy. Nice mouthfeel and packed with flavor. Chocolate, nuts, coffee, roasted malt, burnt nuts, grapes. Aftertaste is dark roasted barley, rich. I like this porter because it packs so much flavor and to my palate it is very agreeable, however it is lacking in complexity. Lacing is left by the lovely microbubbled head. Nevertheless, I could drink this porter all day. So pick one up, its a solid try.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Nutty, chocolatey, lightly vegetal aroma. Opaque brown body with plenty of suspended proteins is topped by low tan head that recedes to partial cover. Nutty, sweet cocoa flavour with some vegetal notes and fair finishing bitterness. Medium body with soft but lively carbonation. Decent but it comes across more as a dark brown ale than a porter. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle @ Stockholm Beer Festival 2005
Full bodied! Plenty of chocolate and toasted barley. And plenty of hops as well. Like velvet on your tounge. Dangerously easy to down. Want more!

rlgk (10275) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Dark amber, small brown head. Great aroma from licorice, some tar and coffee, juniperberries. Tar flavor with some licorice. A bit thin to be a porter this strong.

hopscotch (9106) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle... Lightly hazy, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The nose is of milk chocolate and roasted nuts with lesser notes of vanilla and caramel. Perfectly balanced and chocolately flavor. A bit burnt and adequately bitter. Light to medium-bodied and astringent with middle-of-the-road carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter and bone dry. Very spendy at $11 per bottle.

Perceptron (32) - USA - SEP 29, 2005
Porter as an actual style! This beer pours a dark brown, with ruby hilights. The aroma is brown malt - brown malt! Now that’s a blast from the past. Was this malt kilned the "old fasioned" porter way and not in a barrel roaster? It would certainly seem that way. The flavor is a little sweet, elegantly balanced toasted malt with some wood smoke in the finish. A great porter designed for drinking in quantities! Too bad it costs $9.00 for a 750ml bottle!

RBESG 2005, brown colour with an off white head. Roasted malty aroma with a chocolate sweetness and hints of fruit. Sweet flavor with lots of chocolate and a coffee bitterness.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Dark ruby red; curiously light color. Lightish body; fizzy carbonation. Big element of sweet chocolate, with lesser notes of dark toast, wood, caramel, brown sugar, and coffee. Only a mild bitterness. Flavorful, pleasant beer ... albeit a little too sweet and just a tad too thin.
