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.

Listigovers (1085) - Toronto, Ontario, - DEC 4, 2012
An astounding porter. Pours with a perfect thick pillowy cream coloured head. Pure black body. Smells of strong malty aromas with a bit of sourness? Full taste and medium body.

Davros IX (127) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
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 wasnt 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.

wheresthepath (2258) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle at the Cerise Bar, Reading. Deep ruby with a thin beige head. Smoke, fruit and chocolate in the whiff. On first taste its pleasantly smoky and chocolatey; on further tastes this turns to sweet and rather fake chocolate and coffee, rather like a Quality Street coffee cream. Theres a hint of rubber in the background to and its rather thin. Like many Meantime brews its OK but fails to deliver its full potential. Which is a bit of a shame given how expensive it was in this bar- not a place Id ever normally choose myself, but as it was a friends birthday I had little choice in the matter.

Marko (5402) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2016
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.

375ml bottle, on sale at my local for a whopping $2.50. Brown pour with a slight light tan head. Nose is roasted malt. Taste is pretty good, light body with a large amount of roasted, burnt and slightly smoked malt. Finishes dry with a malty bitterness.

BenL8 (150) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Beautiful appearance. Nice thick foam which dissipates rather quickly. Pours a very dark brown which is clear. Aroma is complex, lots of dark malts and quite spicy. Some biscuit and chocolate aromas and a herbal earthy note. Mouthfeel is pleasant and rather thick, medium body and carbonation. Flavour is similar to aroma: complex and malty, with plenty of dark malts. Has a very pleasant hoppy-herbal and earthy note which I really enjoy. Chocolate is pronounced. The bitterness is very nicely balanced with the maltiness, brilliant balance overall. Brilliant beer, one of the best porters I?ve had, pretty much defines the London porter in my opinion.

Deep amber colour, fluffy head. Sadly the whole batch seems to have survived an earthquake so pouring was quite some task. Very prominent alcohol note, chocolate, sweet malt. Very pleasant after work draft.

Originally rated on 8/1/08. It poured a deep mohagany, amber when held up to light, with a thick tan head. There wasnt much aroma to speak of. The flavor was overwhelming of alcohol i couldnt believe that it was only 6.5%, the other flavors were cherries, roasted malt, caramel and a little chocolate, but the alcohol drowned them out. If it wasnt for that i would have rated it higher.
