COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One hundred years after the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, a new beer style emerged in England. Taking its cues from Three Threads, a bartenders blend of three distinct ales, Porter became the beer of choice for 18th-century Londoners. Mayflower Porter embraces this history. This complex brew is smooth and full-flavored with notes of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate that will warm the palate all year long.

Bottle. Pours near-black with a medium brown head. Aroma of roast malts, coffee and a little chocolate. Flavor is roasty with coffee and dark chocolate being the dominant flavors. Very smooth, one of the best porters Ive had.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2010
On tap at the Peoples Republic - Cambridge, MA. Pours a solid charred oak, with little head. Aroma is crisp and grain-salty. Roasted, rich, and aromatic. Flavors develop a deeply satisfying snappy crunch of roasted malts, well developed caramels and brown sugars, along with an edge of yeast-driven fruitiness that complements well. Body is thick and works well against the drier edges of the roasted malts. A solid, solid porter.

IrishBoy (4181) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 12, 2010
12 oz bottle from Largiari! Thanks! Nose of coffee, coffee, and more coffee with a little caramel in the background. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor is white pepperiness, coffee, and a little bitter chocolate. I would love to be able to have this available locally for a session beer, but 3000+ miles?

Cavie (4642) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Largiari. Dark red pour. Very dark but has reddish notes through the light. This porter smells amazing. Lovely sweet chocolate with coffee roast. Very nice. Taste is upfront bitter roast. Some dark chocolate feeds it also. I like this a lot.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Pours a dark black. Minimal head, light tan in color. No lacing. Aroma strong of roasted malts and coffee. Chocolaty flavor with bitter coffee finish. Definitely needs to be served on the warm side. Silky smooth mouth feel,. Carbonation stings a bit. Overall, not a bad beer. Mouth feel a little odd and throws it off.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Tap at the Mayflower campsite BCTC 09. Pours a nice deep amber-brown with a good sticky head. Aroma is fresh nutty, toast, good fresh chocolate malt, light roast, some grassy and herbal hops and a bready yeast/maltiness. Flavor is sharp bittersweet chocolate, but fresh malts all around and nicely hopped- malt forward and clean finish. Pretty solid porter.
