Got this bottle as an extra from 6DaysBottomOcean. Thanks!
Dark brown pour, almost black; think flat pepsi. ¾ inch tan head with decent retention. Held up to the light and tinged brown at the edges, lively carbonation bubbling up from the bottom but hidden in the dark depths of the beer. Decent lacing on the pint glass too during my drinking.
Aroma of roasted dark malts, dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Pleasantly surprised by the complexity of this porter.
Taste parallels the aroma. Again, pleasantly surprised but it seems that the flavors area all fighting for attention and none really get recognition on the palate.
Full bodied with a dark chocolate aftertaste. Decent lingering flavor between each drink. Carbonation seems just right to keep this from being too heavy.
Damn good drinkability. Good flavor, not too strong, complex. Worth a try and wish I had some more!

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
