COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yards has recreated General Washington Tavern Porter - a dark beer brewed with molasses. General George Washington originally created this porter to satisfy the thirsts of his field officers. Washington's fondness for Colonial Philadelphia-style porter is reflected in this historic recipe.

12 oz. bottle in an English pint. Dark brown pour with a long standing head. Peanut shell aroma with hints of banana and coffee. Nice sweet coffee flavor with a bitter finish.

EvanFriend (298) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Very, very bland for a porter, especially a relatively high ABV porter. I believe that General Washington would be disappointed; I certainly am.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - JUN 11, 2014
A clear dark brown pour with a light one finger head. Aroma isn’t too strong but contains hints of roasted malts, slight butter and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet and malty with a slight bitter finish. Medium body and a refreshing porter

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick, bubbly tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes like light burnt toast and roasted coffee bitterness. Smooth with light creaminess. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light sweet and roasted chocolate and coffee with light booze.

decaturstevo (4920) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light roasted malt and a touch of coffee. Flavor is pretty hard roasty malt with a nice medium/hard bitter finish. A tad thin and watery but pretty solid beer.

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice mahogany color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is of caramel, molasses, licorice, coffee, and leaves a quick, dry finish I would say a bit distinct, not the same old porter.

Pours dark brown, decent head. Medium carbonation. Roasted coffee beans, spices on the nose. Coffee, hints of chocolate, cinnamon stick, robust hoppy bitterness. Pretty good porter.

This is a strong porter. A very nice aroma and appearance. Too bitter for me but overall a good beer.
