slowrunner77 (5986) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
A no frills but well made porter. Robust indeed for 6.5%, big roasted malt and low but noticeable hopping. Wouldn’t mind giving this a shot solo if they ever bottle it.

> A Liptons tea flavored brown ale -___-

[ Tap ][ AleSmith ][ 4oz ][ Mini Imperial Pint ][ $2 ][ 2/25/14 ]
>> Deep brown pour with cola highlights. Fantasic sheets of lacing. Great foam with a similar mocha color to Speedway. Sweet tea aroma, lots of Liptons. Huh. Taste is Liptons tea bag. Nothing says robust or porter.

<!> not robust, not porter, all tea
