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.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
750ml bottle from BW. Bottle opens with an unimpressive pop - not sure how much bottle conditioning is happening. Clear, mahogany pour with red highlights and a medium beige head with excellent retention and leaving heavy lace. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Nose is medium roast malt, molasses and chocolate. Chocolate, toffee, raisins, coffee, brown sugar and molasses. Hop profile is low, with some subtle spices Finish is medium, dry and roasty. Very well integrated, delicious and sessionable. Almost perfect.

Bif (1800) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste of roasted malt with a subtle touch of chocolate and coffee. Easy bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, nicely crafted, as the chocolate and coffee compliment not overpower the brew. Enjoyable beer to relax with.
