COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel notes to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare (whose original brewery stood just blocks from where ours is now). Our Tavern Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth, and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish

2nd August 2010. Fonefan in the Masters Division - Jan’s Birthday Bash.
Beer fetched from downstairs by cgarvieuk - Cheers Craig! Opaque black beer. No head. Moderate carbonation - light palate - fairly dry. A little lactose sweetness. Spritzy. That’s about it - and airy dark malt beer.

Bottle. Very dark brown color. Aroma - not sure what to make of this one, interesting spice and trees. Taste is sweet and syrupy with a tangy finish. Definitely unique.

3.3
Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
Very dark brown. Straightforward porter – toast, coffee, molasses…a tad wet body. Decent malt development but not nearly as interesting as other historical re-creations like Flag Porter.
