another bottle from my most recent trade with jlindros. thanks jared!
12oz bottle. sampled march 7/2011.
pours very dark brown, nearly black, with a small cap of fine tan head. the head quickly drops to a ring around the glass and leaves spotty lace. at its thinnest it starts to show a beautiful crystal clear garnet colour.
aroma is good. dark and milk chocolate. coffee. bit of dark fruit. lightly toasted biscuit and multi-grain bread. bit of cracker. light alcohol. earthy and woody. light herbal character.
taste is great. dark and bittersweet chocolate. touch of milk chocolate. coffee. dark toasted multi-grain bread. biscuit and cracker. light alcohol. bit of dark fruit. touch of alcohol. medium-light bitterness level, more chocolaty than hoppy. earthy and a bit woody. a bit herbal too.
mouthfeel is good. medium bitterness level. medium carbonation level.
drinkability is great. nice balance. good depth. tasty!

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
