Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:
We wish the world brewed more straight-up Porters.
Pours a dark, opaque brown topped with a tan lace. Aroma is slightly acrid with fresh toasty brown breads and suggestions of bitter chocolate and molasses. Fairly light bodied, but firm and even. Creamy on the palate. An underlying dryness sets the foundation. Semi-sharp acrid character with a quelling layer of sweetness on top. Notes of molasses, faint caramel, earth, dry chocolate, chicory, dark breads and slightly burnt edges. Pithy and peaty. Light citric hop bite with some grass. Finishes mildly abrasive with a drying linger and hint of smoke.
Quite possibly a perfect Porter, by modern-day standards. What we dig about Mayflower's version is that it leans toward the English style, which tends to be more balanced, well-attenuated and sessionable. Delicious!

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
