Thanks go to (I think) LocalIsBetter for hooking me up with this.
Poured into my Delirium tremens tulip.
A: Pours a deep mahogany color with ruby highlights around the edges. About a finger of foam recedes fairly quickly to leave a thin layer floating on top with little to no lacing around the glass.
S: Very robust. Heavy coffee up front. Deep caramel and chocolate tones follow close behind. Not much hops to speak of, but then again, there really shouldn't be. Near perfection.
T: Big roasty flavors bombard the palate immediately upon impact, followed by some coffee and chocolate. Some caramel notes are present, but are mostly covered up by the massive roastiness. Seems to get better with every sip. Impressive.
M: Almost spot on. Could use just slightly less carbonation, but otherwise this is about as good as it gets.
D: Wow. One of, if not the, best porters I've ever had. And at 5.5%, I could drink plenty more. Remarkable.

Same spot as I found the date for their blonde "PKG DEC 16, 2013"
Into a mug.
A: pitch black colored body with a slim white one fingered foamy head that drops to a speckled sticky foamy lacing
S: delicately balanced coffee to chocolate - a nice gentle burnt and roastiness
T: pretty much the same as the aroma with a crisp dry roasty chocolatey aftertaste and just a dry finish
M: sits fairly light on the body with a gentle sessionability to it, carbonation is slightly smooth but also shows some harshness to keep one from pounding it
O: what a nice English Porter, probably the best one I've had today by Mayflower as I would definitely have this again
