This beer is absolutely wonderful. The perfect porter! I've been drinking Mayflower for a few years now and I like their others, but my love always lies with the porter. The appearance is dark and the smell is of light coffee and hints of dark chocolate and some good hops. A nice full mouthful with a great hoppy finish and dark chocolate aftertones. Like I said, perfect. The way porter should be.

Very dark brown, almost black color leaving a tan, foamy head with nice lacing when poured.

It has an initial smokey taste that quickly evolves into a chocolate/coffee blend that lingers on the sides of the tongue.

A smooth, heavier taste without the heavier feel. Very light carbonation.

The kind of beer you can drink all night.

I've had porters in nearly every state and a few provinces in North America, including one that just one an award in Tucson, AZ. Mayflower Porter is the best I've had in many years of drinking porters. You won't go wrong with this one.

Hopefully Mayflower can work on expanding its distribution as only a few places in my area carry it. It was recommended by a bartender at Mondo's in Middletown when I asked for a dark beer. She served up a winner!

Wow. My new favorite. At first sip can taste the malts which are outstanding, but I am blown away by the body. Mayflower has created a new gem. I expect a porter with this taste and feel to need an 8-9% ABV in order to carry it off, but to manage this with only 5.5% is amazing. The only problem I have with this issue is finding it; is constantly sold out locally.

Served in a Mayflower Nonic at 55 degrees.

Pours a deep ruby brown color with a thick tan head with good retention. Strong smells of roasted malt, smoke, and chocolate notes. Bitter hop taste noticable coupled with dark roasty malts with some coffee notes. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with limited carbination. An excellent and unique porter on par with Fullers.
