Drank a couple of pint glasses from a tap.

Appearance: Very dark almost black, with nice brown head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a nice balance. Can smell the hops, coffee, and roasted malts, but none of the aromas dominate the others.

Taste: A nice mix of hops and malts, and with a hint of roasted coffee. The hops are just enough to balance the malts and provide for some complexity. There are hints of some sweetness from the malt, with a little coffee flavor. There is a nice mix of hop and malt influence in the after taste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, and with a good body.

Overall: This is an interesting porter. I would buy a case of this.

Very good, rich with hints of coffee.

Pours black with a tan head, after a vigorous pour left a one finger head that receded fairly quick, left a moderate amount of lacing behind.

Smells smokey, and hints of coffee.

Definitely a lot of smoke in this flavor, smoked malts and deep coffee, espresso even. Very smooth, no off flavors, and the bitterness doesn't run rampant.

Medium-full bodied, leaves a bit of an oily feel, mild carbonation.

This is quite a pleasing porter, and I think I'll be checking out other Mayflower brews very soon.
