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 bartender’s 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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was light of roasted caramel malts, a sort of barnyard scented yeast and strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It tasted slightly sweet and quite flavorful with notes of coffee and caramel at first and then a bitter sweet chocolate/coffee flavor engulfed the taste buds and stayed with you for a nice little while. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice straight forward Porter.

SlovakSniper (5264) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Liquide brun avec mousse beige qui se présente en anneau. Au nez, torréfaction et brûlure maltée, terre et échos chocolatés et caramélisés. En bouche, puissance des céréales rôties dans une mise en scène légère qui est propre au style. Texture agréablement crémeuse. Finale bien amère et persistante. Bon chic, bon genre.

Tap. Very dark brown, tan head, faint roasty nose. Burnt roast flavor, mild malt profile. Decent flavor for more robust traditioanal porter.

What is the difference between porter and stout? I’ve been asking knowledgeable friends and getting fairly unconvincing and unsatisfactory answers. Stout, for so many years, to me was defined by Guinness and Murphy’s, two low ABV, smooth, nitro brews or San Smith’s admirable Oatmeal and Imperial... very dark and with minimal hops. Porter was represented by such things as Narraganset Porter and other mainline American brewers attempts at a darker brew. But, with the craft beer revolution in full swing, stouts, and in particular Imperial Stouts, have headed toward higher ABV, often very high. And the adjuncts! Coffee is black, throw some in! Chocolate is black, throw that in as well. I don’t dig it. But here’s a porter from Mayflower (did the Pilgrims have casks of ale onboard?). Oddly enough, it has that same dark chocolate and coffee grounds flavoring and bitter finish so popular in many Imperial stouts. The ABV is reasonable for a porter, and the flavor is not so overwhelming that I reach for a glass of water between sips. I rate this as pretty good, but prefer a milder, adjunct free dark brew, call it porter or stout or whatever.
