Bottle. Hazy brown color with a khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma and flavor were coffee, caramel, roasted malt and some chocolate. As it warms, I get some dark fruit. Not my favorite porter but I can drink it. Average tsd08460 (1279) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2016

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours dark brown and black with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is coffee and fruit. The taste is coffee, chocolate, vanilla and tobacco. It’s smooth and creamy with a nice balance of bitterness and subtle sweetness. This is a nice porter and worthy of having George Washington’s picture on it. unclemike (3196) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Poured dark cherry brown - like a cherry cola; medium head with multi-sized bubbles. Caramel raisins, sweet and malty, (very) lightly roast coffee. Body was a little on the thinner side. Finished with some sourness. retinadoc (243) - - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle. Well finished porter. Sweet aroma, smooth palate. Clean finish. No off flavors. Not punchy or overly boozy. Not a centerpiece offering, in that it won’t win awards for stand-out flavor, but very smooth and drinkable, but likely much better for regular drinking instead of a tasting session.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Opaque (except around edges), dark rusty brown with a fine, tan head and good lacing.
Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, molasses and licorice.
Taste of roasted malt, leather, cocoa, licorice, roasted coffee and a little dried fruit.

Pretty interesting, roasty and complex porter.

Nice Porter, not too overpowering with notes of oatmeal, a little light on the side for my taste however that should be a given as it is advertised as using George Washington's recipe from almost 250 years ago.
