4/13/2010: I am somewhat of a history nerd in that I like knowing how certain styles of beer came to be, when they came to be, why etc. Turns out English Porters have been around since the 1700’s. It was the beer of choice for the blue collared workers during the United Kingdoms Industrial Revolution. Ok enough History Channel shtuff, time to drink.

Mayflower Porter smells very “roasty.” Pours out a bit thicker than average with only a little bit of head. The flavor is roasty, mocha-y, and a little bit of char. This beer is very smooth, and roast flavor is for sure the headliner the whole way through. Has a nice dose of sweetness as well, maybe molasses? Overall a very drinkable porter.
