3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2012 Bottled.....The head of the beer doesn’t last. The color is dark dark red. Loads of coffee smooth with small hints of vanilla bean and earthy tones. The palate doesn’t last too long bitterness and sweetness hit you with the coffee. Not to bad overall.

Nice Porter, not too overpowering with notes of oatmeal, a little light on the side for my taste however that should be a given as it is advertised as using George Washington's recipe from almost 250 years ago.

Definitely one of the better porters I’ve had in a long time. I sampled this on draft at the City Tavern in Philly. The beer poured a black color with a light tan head. There was plenty of beautiful lacing happening inside the glass. The nose featured some caramel, vanilla, chocolate, roasted barley and a slight hint of sweet alcohol. The body was perfectly drinkable and smooth, with flavors of chocolate, cream, vanilla, caramel, fruit, very light hops, toasted bread and a hint of booze.

Dark with some red, some head. Nose is toasty, molasses, a bit of fruit. Taste is roasty, sweet malt, some fruit and coffee on the finish. Very little carbonation. It's ok.

Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, molasses, caramel, and sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice porter that is easy drinking, smooth, and sessionable for the style.
