Taking its cues from “Three Threads”, a bartender’s blend of three distinct ales, Porter became the beer of choice for 18th-century Londoners. Mayflower Porter embraces this history. This complex brew is smooth and full-flavored with notes of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate that will warm the palate all year long. Mayflower Porter is a rich, complex brew that is smooth and full-flavored. Five varieties of malted barley provide notes of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate with a hint of smokiness.

Quite dark chestnut, with a little dark orange, for highlights. Moderate, but fairly sharp, dark roasted grain aroma. Pretty good level of dark roasted grain, in a medium light bodied brew, and it goes on to the finish.

16oz can served in a tulip. Dated 09/28/21. Received from @WunderLlama as a retaliation been in NBS BIF #14.

Pours dark with a big, medium-density head, light carbonation. Smell is moderate chocolate and coffee and a lot of nuts. Yeasty, grainy, maybe some anise.

Taste is similar, though somewhat mild. Chocolate coffee and nuts, anise somewhat muted, mild to heavy roasty bitterness, some light woodiness, and some grainy sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium to thick. Overall, a very solid porter.

I'm a big fan of this porter. A ton of roast bitterness, really on the border of too much but it keeps it just on this side of the line. A nice feel and body as well.

Ok, so the beer I had was a coffee porter on nitro at the brewery but I could not find it on beer advocate. This beer is so ridiculously fantastic. Smooth, creamy, not overly carbonated, subtle notes of vanilla and chocolate. Idk, it’s just great.

Wicked! Much more lively than a typical porter. Enough hops to cut into the syrupy malts, which still dominate - as they should. Satisfyingly rich and dense with enough fizz to balance and cut that. Drinking one satisfies nicely - but not so heavy that more would be too rich - as can be the case for me with porters. Wicked!

Decanted into a 12 oz (355 ml) clear goblet from a 16 oz (473 ml) can; canned on 07/07/20.
A: Pours a very dark, clear brown color with a two finger, tan head, cap and ring retention and complex rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of molasses, cocoa, mocha, toffee, and macadamia nuts
T: Semisweet. Flavors mirror the nose, but much more birch beer and/or sarsaparilla. Solid but balanced bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate effervescence
O: Mayflower has come up with a light but delicious Anglo-American Porter.
