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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - 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.

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 (4420) - 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.

flemdawg (549) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2006
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.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
I was pleasantly surprised with this beer, but for the price point I doubt I’ll buy it regularly. A marked porter tang and a creamy body that is a touch too light. A hint of cocoa and definitely chocolate milk. Cream sweetness and roast in the middle with some nuttiness. Weak coffee throughout. Very nice!

Pailhead (5801) - Plymouth, 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 (3290) - 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 (2128) - 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 (1982) - 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.
