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.

On draught at the brewery, served in a pint glass.

Black body, translucent dark reds at the edges. Dense tan head, great lacing and moderate retention. Cocoa and a bit of roast on the nose, some coffee and cream type character. English yeast qualities shine through, with some good hopping. Creamy and roasty flavour, sweet chocolate notes and cocoa powder. More roast and hops in the finish. Medium full feel, smooth velvety mouthfeel. A really nice English porter, as drinkable as they come.

Imperial pints on tap at the pub. This review is from notes.

Pours dark and hazy with a nice, brownish white head. Smells good and roasty, with complex barley nodes and a mild dose of dry British hops.

Tastes much sweeter than the aroma had led me to expect. A bit of charred barley up front quickly gives way to some nutty chocolate nodes which stick around forever and just give way to a firm hop dryness at the very back end. Tastes similarly hopped to Black Sun, which definitely isn't a bad thing, but it doesn't quite taste like a porter. It's more like a cross between a dry stout and a heavily hopped American brown.

On tap at FFF.
Served in a 16 oz plastic cup.

The lacing is fucking amazing-- even in the plastic cup. Very dark, almost purple hues coming through.
Very thick and creamy feeling. Low carbonation helps that along.

Smells and tastes nicely coffee-forward. Very roasty and porter-ific.
Lots of chocolatey, roasty, sweet, and caramel malts up here.
Very dry and roasty finish.

Overall-- very thick and creamy for a porter-- but I like it.
Another solid beer from the FFF gang.

On-tap at Maria's Packaged Goods, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours black with a thick tan head, good retention and lacing.

S- Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, milk chocolate.

T- Roasted malts are very prominent, has a bit of char and smoke, also chocolate and coffee, the dominant char is held up pretty nicely by some piney hops. Has a roasted bitter finish.

M- Medium to full bodied, great carbonation, has a smooth and creamy feel with a bone dry finish.

O- A really great porter, if this were available more regularly I would get it all the time.

Love the description for this one. 16 oz. served in a plastic cup on March 25th, 2012 during the FFF Deconstruction.

A - Deep brown, ebony coloring. Slightly-lighter head leaves great lacing and okay retention.

S - Sweet caramel and honey. Very appropriately lactic with a light touch or roasted malt grains and dark fruits. A bit stout-like with porter mellowness.

T - Big flavors here. Robust roasted note at the front. Backend consists of sweet toffee and sugar malts blended with sharp coffee beans. Espresso finish really picks as this reaches room temp.

M - Spot-on feel, not hugely creamy but medium body, good carbonation.

D - On-par with Edmund Fitzgerald in the aroma and likely a better taste overall. If the Floyds were ever going to add another dark beer to the year-around lineup, this would be a good candidate.
