Mayflower Porter

Everyone has little quirks. Mine is never setting anything to an even number, especially for my alarm clock. Numbers that end in 1, 2, 3, or 4 or the common time settings. I have done this with the 365 American craft beers in 365 days endeavor too. I wrote a while back (can’t remember the damn entry myself) that I wasn’t going to celebrate day 100, 200, etc. Today though is close to a celebration: only 100 more beers to go, yeah. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Actually still 101 days (see has to end in a non-normal number) since I doubled up on a beer; I have to go to beer 366.

Mayflower Porter by Mayflower Brewing Company bellies up as beer number 265. Porter is actually an English Porter that fits the style well. The beer I had was a good sixteen months old. It aged well.

Aroma and taste were perfect in my book. Roasted, chocolate, caramel, and coffee all come through with the roast probably being the biggest on the senses. The beer finishes dry, real dry, while there is a good bitterness from the malts to balance in the finish. Roast and coffee linger a bit. A solid beer that deserves a try. I need to get my hands on a fresh bottle. Enjoy!

Aroma: 10 (25%), Taste: 10 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 8 (35%), Overall: 9.2

Useless Fact: A person uses more household energy shaving with a hand razor at a sink (because of the water power, the water pump, and so on) than he would by using an electric razor.
