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.

Hugely enjoyable, sexy to drink and everything a good London Porter should be. I am in love with this beer and am grateful that I got the chance to try it on the other side of the world.. The brewer is a hard case too.

Piana drobna trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny pod światło klarowny rubin. Aromat ciemne palone słody lekko kwaskowy, rumowy słodki. Smak suszone owoce rodzynki, gorzka czekolada, kawa, palone słody. Piwo złożone z niewielką słodyczą i muśnięciem szlachetnego alkoholu na finiszu, goryczka niewielka. pije się przyjemnie Bardzo dobre.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Review from memory, from when Wetherspoon used to carry the range. Unfortunately no tasting notes, hopefully will get the chance to return and update the review to something more useful.

Bottle. Dark brown color light beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate subtle coffee. Taste is sweetish coffee, subtle dark fruit, silky mouthfeel. Tasty.

From a 750ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a stable beige head. Aroma: roasted malts, some chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Taste: roasted malts with a hint of smoke, sweet chocolate and caramel malts, vanilla, light bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation, oily texture. Pretty solid porter, very easy drinking you could quickly finish the 750ml by yourself.

A surprisingly good porter from a 750ml bottle. It was chilled and drunk after a hard day working in the garden and it was very thirst quenching. A lovely flavour of toasted malt, coffee and possibly some soy sauce. It wasn’t too thick for a porter and it went down a treat. You can see why all those hard-working London market porters loved this type of beer at the end of the day.

Bottle. Malty; espresso coffee, plain chocolate, roasted biscuity-malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla. Very coffee and chocolate. Spicy and slightly smoky. Fruity; hint of dark fruits. Hoppy; slightly earthy hops. Sweetish roast malty throughout. Dry finish. Nice porter! (2011-01-08)

Bottle, 750 ml from Pivoteka. Courtesy of JFK10000 shared with him and Miro. Pours brown with beige head. Roasted malts, some coffee, smoke, bitter finish. Light sweetness, some bitterness in finish. Light to medium bodied. Oily. Bit bland, thin, expected more.

Bottle at the Cerise Bar, Reading. Deep ruby with a thin beige head. Smoke, fruit and chocolate in the whiff. On first taste it’s pleasantly smoky and chocolatey; on further tastes this turns to sweet and rather fake chocolate and coffee, rather like a Quality Street coffee cream. There’s a hint of rubber in the background to and it’s rather thin. Like many Meantime brews it’s OK but fails to deliver it’s full potential. Which is a bit of a shame given how expensive it was in this bar- not a place I’d ever normally choose myself, but as it was a friend’s birthday I had little choice in the matter.

Sample from a 750ml bottle, thanks to the Pivoteka guys. Brownish body. Smells like mead really, fermented honey, dark malt, oily. Light soft taste, mead-like again in a way (so, notes of fermented honey), soft malty backbone, dry finish. OK. Not thrilling, not world shattering but a solid beer.
