4.5/5  rDev +7.9%

Pours black with a tan head, after a vigorous pour left a one finger head that receded fairly quick, left a moderate amount of lacing behind.

Smells smokey, and hints of coffee.

Definitely a lot of smoke in this flavor, smoked malts and deep coffee, espresso even. Very smooth, no off flavors, and the bitterness doesn't run rampant.

Medium-full bodied, leaves a bit of an oily feel, mild carbonation.

This is quite a pleasing porter, and I think I'll be checking out other Mayflower brews very soon.

Poured an opaque dark chocolate color with a 1F head in a Stone Imperial pint glass.

Aroma: chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and roasted malt. One of the best aromas I have experienced in a Porter.

The aroma transitions well to the taste: mostly roasted malt, with some chocolate.

The finish is slightly hoppy- unusual in a Porter.
Overall: one of the best porters I have tasted. The style can be lackluster in aroma and taste, and the body can sometimes be too thin. This excellent brew has character.
