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.

Aroma: dark chocolate Appearance; black; almost fully opaque when held to light (some dark ruby when held to light). head very quickly dissipates to just a slight amount surrounding the circumference of the glass. some lacing when swirl: taste: initially a little acidic with a little sweet; somewhat missing in mid-taste; chocolate really emerges in the finish. Palate: great after taste; soft carbonation; texture thin at the start and a little thicker on the finish. Overall: good porter. Nice balance of chocolate sweet and acidic bitter.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
Velkomstflaske hos Steven, påsken-14: dark ruby og fint beige skum. Nydelig aroma av kaffe, tørkede frukter, litt sjokolade, røstet malt og et delikat streif av honning. Smaken likeledes, lekker med akkurat passe munnfylde til at den også er lettdrikkelig. 4ørr, typeriktig og smaksrik med andre ord. I klasse med Fullers London Porter.

Aroma is a rich maltiness with some caramel and roastiness present. Taste is a very rich sweet maltiness with some very subtle bitterness. Appearance is a clear dark body with a very poorly retained head.

GraveAtSea (130) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 16, 2014
Black, ruby color with wonderfull beige head. Lovely aroma. Notes of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some dried fruits, cacao. Taste is balanced, between sweetness and bitterness. Flavors of roasted fruits, dark roasted malts, coffee, grain coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits. Medium body with medium carbonation. Really good, drinkable classic Porter but for me a little too watery.

I smell chocolate in this beer. Its a dark brown with a nice creamy brown head. Taste a dark chocolate and slight bitter taste. Its medium bodied with a little nutty flavor. Not a bad porter. Worth a buy.

750 mL bottle shared at a tasting on February 17. This is quite different than what I’ve come to expect for a porter. The pour is a medium to light brown, almost ruby, with a smaller tan head that lingers around a bit, with minimal, spotty lace. The aroma is quite bland. There is a little hint of chocolate, and an inkling of coffee, but nothing else. The flavor matches the aroma to a tee. The mouth feel is thin, slick, and the aftertaste does finish with a nice light chocolatey dryness, which is one of the best qualities of this one

On tap. Pours black with light white head. Aromas of dark chocolate and dried coffee. Flavors of black coffee, cocoa and roasted barley . Very dry. A tad metallic. Very nice.
