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.

mmhws (12) - Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2010
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.

Majek (502) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Dark brown colour, medium beige and stable head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some dark dried fruits with earthy background. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and minimal sour. Medium slightly dry finish. Medium carbonation (could be lower). Medium body. Decent example of classic stout.

adasko (1043) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Very pleasant aroma of chocolate and cocoa. It’s a clear, dark brown color beer, with massive, beige head which is formed from rather big bubbles. Great lacing. Beer is flat, almost no carbonation, it’s highly drinkable. The taste in this beer is growing. Starting with light and calm and it ends with nice bitterness, and a bit of coffee in the aftertaste. It’s a good beer.

SilesiaHopHead (4) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2015 does not count
W barwie ciemne, rubinowe. Piana nikła, słabo się osadza. Aromat słodki, słodowy, zdominowany przez palone i czekoladowe nuty. W smaku wyczuwalny słód, słodycz z przyjemnym czekoladowym finiszem. Piwo nie zalega i jest bardzo pijalne. Warte polecenia.

ABT_S54 (275) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
750ml bottle served in a pint glass. Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is almost non-existent (although in fairness I had come from a DIPA). Mouthfeel is thin for a porter but ok and the flavours are sweet orientated with little bitterness (again I came from a DIPA). The main flavour I was able to pick out unfortunately was smoky bacon and no matter how I tried I was unable to get past it. This was a return to the beer as about 10 years ago before I was able to drink beer (they were all too bitter) I quite enjoyed this - along with Samichlaus. I think the reason has become evident as the sweetness and lack of bitterness in both beers is childlike and not well balanced but a good introduction to beer in general.
