COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaailable on Keg and in 750ml bottles.
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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2007
Brown/black with a nice head. The aroma has nice notes of roasted malt and chocolate. The mouthfeel is semi-oily and the flavour has like the aroma mainly chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of licorice. It has a nice bitterness. Its a really nice porter, but if I were to drink the entire bottle myself, I think it should be a bit to monotonous and lack complexity.

Braudog (6493) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2007
Caged and corked 750ml bottle; The initial pour produced a nice solid topping of foam (subsequent pours werent quite as productive). The beer itself is deeply crimson-brown and light struggles to penetrate it. Although a bit chalky, the aroma is one of a nice bitter chocolate. Theres a bit of the chocolate on the tongue, as well ... with twists of strawberry licorice, espresso, and a tight finish. This is some good stuff. (#2767, 4/1/2007)

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2007
750ml bottle enjoyed during the 3rd annual St. Pats day celebration. Pours clear and very much reminds me of maple syrup with a light head. The aroma is nice with roasted malt and molasses. Flavor is lightly sweet with roasted malt and molasses just as the aroma suggests, though there is more of a sweetness than I would have imagined. Well balanced and blended hops. Fairly light bodiedbalanced comes to mind again. Very drinkable.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Draught. Dark red with a thin head. Aromas of chocolate, smoke, nail polish, caramel. Very thin in body. A bit tart in flavor with green apple, cocoa and a hint of smoke. Unless I got a sub par pint, this beer is drastically over rated IMO.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Dark, nearly as dark ruby brown as a stout with a reasonable light tan head. The nose is appealing. Big chocolate malts and only the slightest bit of roasty astringency. Sweet with a good measure of floral hops providing balance more than the roast. The mouthfeel is about spot on. Reasonable viscosity with low carbonation make for a drinkable brew. The flavor is not bad, but unfortunately a bit off. Big creamy chocolate malt, very little roast, a little astringency and then some healthy measure of diacetyl. Its heavy in the creamy finish. Its hard not to notice in the lingering chocolate roast aftetaste. a good beer, not bad, but some tidying up could make this a really excellent porter.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle from Real Ale, twickenham. Lovely dark ruby porter, smooth and easy-drinking, but then it opens up and has a lovely finish that lingers a long time, with licquirice, malt, and even the smoke from a forest fire. Roasted pine kernels from the fire, too! No feeling of the alcohol, so this could be dangerous! This brewery has a fine range of pastiche beers, I look forward to when they go for some all out experiments.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2007
bottle: pours a nice dark chocolate brown with a foamy off white head. aroma is sweet like caramel with a little raostedness in it. the flavour is a suttle roasted chocolte and a little thin. it finishes with just a touch of bitterness and a little watery overall though a very nice porter that could be very sessionable.

leaparsons (10130) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2007
75 cl bottle. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are strong roast coffee with caramel malts beneath. Also has cocoa powder and earthy, peppery hops. Flavours are roast malts with liquorice and dark chocolate bitterness. Some hints of Winter fruit. Some dry woodiness with hints of peaty smokiness. Quite prickly on the palate with a dry peppery finish. I was expecting more of this, its good but a little thin in body.

(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, and hint of dark fruit. Flavor of roastiness, coffee, and nuts.
