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.

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

Slight hazy dark brown beer with a warm orange glow and with nice yellow-beige froth. Aroma is slight burned, has hints of tar, coffee, toffee, caramel and refreshing hops. Taste is medium dry but has quit a full taste. It has hints of chalk, burned caramel, dry toffee, cookies and herby pancakes. This beer end with a well hidden soft minty afthertaste. Thanks Kook for sending me this nice Porter.

Brown Coloring with Sandy Head. Smoked Coffee Roast and Bittersweet Malt Throughout. Solid Body. This Porter Has Very Nice Flavors and Lots of Presence and Has What You Would Standardize in a Porter but Perhaps Not Something You Would Drink Often or Alot of. The Same Way I Feel About Anchor Porter.

JorisPPattyn (8200) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2005
Dark , near-black beer; very fluffy brownish head. Pure liquorice and coffee, moccha with the yeast poured. Liquorice taste, thinned coffee, Café Liégeois , bitter chocolate and in the finish, a bit of smokiness and dark grains. Very well bodied, but nearly no slickness. Good porter, with enough sweetness covered under the coffee.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2009 Original Rating, December 7, 2005. 750mL. Brown color with no head. Aroma was hard to pick out with only a little malt and roasts coming to the front. Taste was predominantly smokey malts. Unexpected, but fairly tasty. 6/3/7/3/13 Re-rating, June 15, 2009. 375mL. Deep, dark ruby color with a large head. Smokey aroma, with some burnt caramel. Bone dry roasted barley flavor. Plenty of smoke. Almost acrid.

This one reminded me of New Holland The Poet and Magic Hat Ravell a lot. Dark brown pour with ruby edges and a small white head. The aroma had dark malt, chocoff, some fruit, and some oak. The flavor was malty, with a lot of chocoff and some cabernet and brown sugar in the finish. Somewhat light palate and not as complex as the elite porters, but this one is well worth a try. I got mine for 6 bucks, and it was worth that in my opinion.
