Mayflower Porter

I saw this at the local bar, its tap handle mingling with other more established brands, hiding the youth of the Mayflower brewery (it started distributing earlier this year) and this particular style.  My pint came with the thinnest amount of fizz on top of a rich, opaque chocolate beer.

A mild coffee and more pronounced toffee aroma arose from its thick body.  Its mouthfeel is as one would expect of a porter of its appearance, filling my mouth with sweet and roasty tastes.

Surprisingly, this porter goes down easy and light.  My mouth wanted more after my first sip, and I feel I could have obliged it a few more pints quite easily.
