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.

Very bright on the mouth, kind of tart and bitter, dry and roasty. Smokey chocolate flavor, a bit of burnt yeast. Not very smooth. Sticky yeast aftertaste. I expected more.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Beautiful appearance. Nice thick foam which dissipates rather quickly. Pours a very dark brown which is clear. Aroma is complex, lots of dark malts and quite spicy. Some biscuit and chocolate aromas and a herbal earthy note. Mouthfeel is pleasant and rather thick, medium body and carbonation. Flavour is similar to aroma: complex and malty, with plenty of dark malts. Has a very pleasant hoppy-herbal and earthy note which I really enjoy. Chocolate is pronounced. The bitterness is very nicely balanced with the maltiness, brilliant balance overall. Brilliant beer, one of the best porters I?ve had, pretty much defines the London porter in my opinion.

Deep amber colour, fluffy head. Sadly the whole batch seems to have survived an earthquake so pouring was quite some task. Very prominent alcohol note, chocolate, sweet malt. Very pleasant after work draft.

Originally rated on 8/1/08. It poured a deep mohagany, amber when held up to light, with a thick tan head. There wasnt much aroma to speak of. The flavor was overwhelming of alcohol i couldnt believe that it was only 6.5%, the other flavors were cherries, roasted malt, caramel and a little chocolate, but the alcohol drowned them out. If it wasnt for that i would have rated it higher.

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.
