Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

On October 17, 1814 in Giles Parish, London, a 22 ft tall wooden porter tank ruptured, causing surrounding vessels to burst, releasing an estimated 323 gallons of house- destroying porter tidal wave. Porters were the overwhelming ale of choice for the London working class. Mushy P pays homage to this English brewing tradition with complex roastiness and robust flavor.

3.25/5  rDev -20.1%

On tap at FFF brewpub. Served in a pint glass.

The appearance is black and dense. It has a nice creamy head that lasts.

The smell and taste are a flat sort of malt roastiness with toast and chocolate.

The mouth feel was thin. I would say unappealing, but it fits the Porter style.

Overall, I thought this was pretty mediocre. It's worth a try, but not a second pour, especially at the FFF brewpub. There are too many better choices on tap.

3.9/5  rDev -4.2%

On-tap at 3 Floyds. Served in an imperial pint glass.

A - Big tan foam settles to a near-complete cap, thick collar, and splotchy glass-coating lace. Dark brown body that reveals some slight transparency at the fringes.

S - Fantastic aroma, with tons of caramel, milk chocolate, roasted malts, and nuts. Extremely potent, with a super-enjoyable mix of sweet and roast flavors.

T - Unfortunately the taste is not quite as good. There's some astringency and char flavors that seem to dominate, along with some smoke and roast. Most of the sweet chocolate and caramel has vanished leaving this somewhat unbalanced. It's not bad by any stretch, but just fails to live up to the aroma.

M - Medium body, slightly gritty and dry texture, pleasant moderate carbonation, and a roasty finish.

D - A promising beer that is marred by excessive char and roast bitterness. If they could get a little more of the sweetness found in the aroma onto the palate this would be fantastic. Currently it's merely an enjoyable diversion from superior offerings.
