Samuel Adams George Washington Porter

The third beer I'm trying from the Brewer Patriot Collection from Samuel Adams is the George Washington Porter. This one was brewed with molasses, licorice and plenty of East Kent Goldings hops. Said to be a porter that may have been brewed in the colonial days, I'm excited to see what this one has in store for me.



Pours from the 12oz bottle into my glass a dark, murky brown that borders on black with a creamy two finger head of light tan foam leaving some nice lacing. So far so good! Aroma is nice with a roasty, smokey dark malt in the forefront. Molasses and chocolate work in and after letting the brew sit for a few minutes I get a big blast of herbaceous licorice root. Quite interesting, I'm enjoying the aroma here.

First sip brings a nice dark roasted, kinda smokey malt upfront that's quickly met by a chocolate/molasses one-two punch. Herbal bitterness moves in halfway through with only a light licorice root note that's somewhat earthy. Finishes off with some herbal hops. Quite a strong, bitter flavor profile here. Definetly an interesting porter to be had here.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. This one has quite a bit of body to it and stands up nicely. An interesting porter with a big herbal smack. I quite enjoyed this one and I could see myself coming back to it. Definetly a brew I would've been drinking if I had lived back in the colonial era.

Overall I gave this beer a 3.95 out of 5.
My favorite of the collection so far.

A friend and I drank all four of these back to back the other night, and the Porter was definately my favourite. He's not big on coffee and smoke notes in beer, so he didn't like it quite as much - I think he prefered the Ginger. And we were both baffled by the Root Beer.
