Served in a pint glass at Estelles in Boston.
Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Roasty, smoke, chocolate, toffee, caramel, old and stale ale, and some earthy qualities.
Taste: Smoke, toffee, caramel, earthy, chocolate, roasty, and some old stale ale qualities.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, a little bitter, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Very exceptional porter. Spot on for the style.

Mayflower Brewing Company - Mayflower Porter, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.
Look - Pours a low viscosity brown, settling black, with a good sized foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Good lacing.
Smell - Aroma is malt, coffee, and a touch of chocolate, simple but effective.
Taste - Taste is traditional English porter. A touch of roasted malts and some coffee/chocolate sweetness. Great finish.
Mouthfeel - Low-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Amazing drinkability. Keep wanting more and more.
Overall - Spectacular English porter, easily my favorite so far. The current trend is towards imperials but it's nice to find a great "regular" porter/stout time and again.

3.6/5 rDev -13.7%
A: Black with a nice creamy tan head
S: Coffee and roasted notes
T: Coffee and creamy. Lots of flavor for a 5.5% porter. Not toooo complex.
M: Medium bodied. Dry finish
O: Very good porter. Not sure I'd take it over a Sierra Nev porter, Edmund Fitz, or Anchor porter but glad I had it.

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!

A- Inch tall light brown head on a dark brown body. Cap and collar throughout, leaving splotchy lacing.
S- Whiffs of cocoa powder, deep coffee.
T- More roastiness/coffee notes than chocolate in the taste. Has a lingering roasty/burnt taste that I'm not sure how to feel about.
M- Smooth, lower carbonation. Medium/medium-thick body for it's ABV. Really enjoy how this drinks.
D/O- Highly drinkable although the plus-roastiness may lead to palate fatigue after a few. Thanks for this "Top 50 English Porter" @mj0126 !
