3 Floyds Brewing Co.

Style: English Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Enjoyed on my golden birthday. 26 today.

Served in a 16oz plastic cuo at the brewpub (thanks to constructiin)

Pours a dark brown with hazelnut hints. A finger of light tan head leaves spotty lace behind.

The nose is very robust and roasted malts shine hard. Some coffee, milk chocolate, and more roasted malt. As it warms, chocolate emerges more and more.

The taste is roasty and chocolate filled without being too sweet or even sweet at all. Tons of coffee notes add to this very robust flavor.

Mouthfeel is dry and roasty and feels great.

Overall, I was quite impressed with this brew. Great roasty flavors and well balanced. A must try while available.

This has a fantastic head followed by expectd retention, thick oatmeal colored collar, tomato soup skin, and complete lacing... Like a perfect pour and vision.

Light bodied aroma, biscuits, lightly toasted oats, bits of light Brown sugar... A simple malted sweetness.

Flavors... A bit mineraly, slight roasted grain toast with a slightly blackened edge. Finishes a nice biscuit and acrid edge. Like a toasted piece of grain that got too close to the heat. Amazingly tasty.

Full bodied, thin at first but the carbonation turns this into a silky creamed soup and sticky delight. Perfect carb. Perfect flavor intensity.

This is the best English porter I've ever had.
