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.

Belgrave (30) - Truro, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a large lasting foamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit and chocolate. Taste is dry and roasty along with some yeast, coffee and a slightly hoppy and chocolatey finish. Medium bodied.

VinegarStroke (404) - Napa, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle: clear deep toffee brown with a very light head & poor lace. Very smokey malt nose. Certainly not a massive lift and while its smokey its not heavily roasted. Slightly sour nose. The palate is dry to off dry with a slightly sour note and medium bitterness. Very smokey malt again on the palate. Lacks complexity or saturation. Nice beer but not great. I like the sour edge the more I taste it.

Lele (489) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 30, 2015
ASPETTO: marrone scuro con riflessi granata, quasi impenetrabile, ma limpido. Schiuma marroncino chiarissimo, abbondante, fine e decisamente persistente. AROMA: complesso, ricco di vari sentori. Allinizio non molto pronunciato, ma si avvertono chiaramente del panettone, della cenere, del caff e una punta di cioccolato. Quando si riscalda si accentua maggiormente un marcato sentore di marzapane. GUSTO: in bocca si ripresentano i sentori avvertiti al naso, con altre sorprese. Sono soprattutto i sentori di marzapane, uvetta, cenere, cioccolato ad essere presenti, tutti per in maniera moderata e perfettamente in armonia tra loro. Il caff emerge soprattutto nella parte finale del sorso e nel retrogusto, con un amaro molto piacevole che ripulisce la bocca e invita ad una nuova bevuta. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione tra media e leggera. CONCLUSIONE: una birra che insieme semplice e complessa: complessa perch sono presenti vari sentori, semplice perch nessuno di essi veramente predominante, anzi, tutto allinsegna dellequilibrio. Questa birra proprio allinsegna dellequilibrio. Birra dallelevata facilit di bevuta e al contempo deliziosa. Da non perdere.

promontor (133) - HUNGARY - MAR 17, 2015
0.33l bottle from csakajsr. Nice beige head, aroma is mild, sweet dark chocolate, maybe a bit roasted. Taste is similar, with some sweet spicyness, perhaps vanilla. Perfect, mild carbonation, bittersweet aftertaste. Minimal hoppiness, just enough to balance things a bit.Typical British beer, well balanced, moderate, harmonic.

Bottle at a tasting. Very light bodied. No carbonation. Light roast flavor. More like a mild than a porter. Very disappointing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4919) - BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2015
This porter attempts to recreate the authentic, historical version of the style, the grandfather of all stouts and the first industrialized beer style in history. Very curious about this. Pours a very dark burgundy colour, transparent and clear at first but hazy with deposit, ruby hue, under a persistently lacing, stable, pale yellowish beige, dense head. Aroma of caramel candy, raisins, dried pipe tobacco, molasses, dry sherry, leather, unmistakable hint of liquorice, cookie dough, sweet red wine, crme au beurre, sour cream, cellar dust, smoked cheese, horse sweat (animalistic farmyard, Im strongly beginning to suspect Brettanomyces at work here), perhaps some brown sugar, earth, suggestions of peated whisky, baked banana and bitter chocolate, very faint hint of cough syrup. Pointy taste, more vivid than expected based on the aroma, with an onset of dried plums, walnuts and blackcurrant, soft carbonation, something umami-like, oily and smooth mouthfeel, dark maltiness with nutty, caramelly and bitter chocolatey characteristics as well as clear wheat sourishness, increasing roasted bitterness in the end but staying subdued and not becoming coffee-like as in a stout, sublty smoky accent (smoked meat) in the end, spicy, herbal and leafy hops in the finish, forming another layer of complexity on top of the lingering toastedly bitterish and caramelly sweetish malts; in all, the finish is bitter, with a long, deep, earthy and leafy hop bitterness; retronasally, a very faint medicinal hint of cough candy seems to get through but a clear, though unadvertized, Brettanomyces effect makes the day, as would indeed have been the case in a 19th-century porter, considering the countless historical resources testifying Brettanomyces clausenii being present in the porters of the day. This is unlike any other porter I had before, it almost feels like a historical beer, but obviously I am unable to judge to which extent this approaches the actual historical porter of the 18th and 19th centuries; if this comes anything close, however, I can easily imagine why it was such a huge success. This is a multi-layered, flawless, interesting beer indeed, which has benefited from having been cellared for a few years. Recommended for those after understanding the porter style - which is hard to distinguish from stouts nowadays in many cases. Id say this is the perfect introduction to this style.

Sample at a local tasting event. Dark body with a low head. Chocolate, nuts, earthy notes, dark fruit. Pretty straight forward.
