COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional black porter, with a surprise twist - it's dry-hopped!! We've expanded the porter category a bit, adding a delightful, dry hop aroma to blend with the sweet caramel and chocolate characteristics of a Robust Porter.

Bottle: Very deep red-brown with a chunky light brown head. Chocolate, coffee, roast aroma. Taste is chocolate powder, singed coffee, piney hops. Tastes a great deal like a BIPA....nicely done, no matter what species it is.

A nice porter. Dark brown pour with some ruby notes, a fizzy off-brown-white head that dissipates quickly. Some roasted malts in the nose. Malts and bitter coffee on the tongue. A touch of sourness. A bit light and fizzy on the mouthfeel and the finish is overhopped for a porter IMO. But all-in-all a delicious beer.

Une bouteille trouvée près de ma cabane dans les bois et dégusté avec l’infâme Peter. Une robe qui fait le style. Une mousse qui ne veut pas mourir. Une très large dentelle. Nos verres sont très beaux! Les parfums de ce liquide presque noir sont très délicieux avec des notes longues de conifères et des malts qui donnent dans le chocolat, le caramel et le café. Je n’en reviens pas de la fraîcheur des houblons. Cette bouteille qui ne porte aucune date doit être bien jeune. Au goût, les saveurs vertes des houblons et les saveurs noires des malts intéressent vivement mes papilles. Cette bière se positionne comme la pionnière des Ipas noires et je suis en mesure de le croire. En bouche, je constate que le corps moyen de cette concoction est bien aéré par les bulles et montre une texture crémeuse. En arrière-goût, les cultivars américains et les grains noircis procurent amertume et joie instantanée. Crisse de bon breuvâge comme dirait mon ami. Allez hop, la soirée est jeune, avançons dans la nuit et faisons un peu les fous!

Pours deep maroon with pretty much no head at all. No kidding on the dry hop. I was expecting something akin to the super pine black IPAs, this is much closer to a citrusy APA instead on the aroma. With dark malt of course. Sweet and fruity flavors, sort of like a fancy chocolate with filling. Solid mouthfeel, perhaps a bit on the thin side. It’s certainly an interesting concept and drink, I think I prefer porters with traditional English hops instead.

Transfer from BA review on 3-16-12 - Served in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a deep brown almost black color with a thin tan head. The small head faded fast giving a fair amount of lacing. Smell –Sweet candy like aromas are the biggest and boldest. There is bit of licorious in there, but the aromas are really much sweeter candy flavor, almost of root beer and chocolate hard candies. Some roasty aromas are present as well, although they are hidden and quite weak in comparison the sweeter aromas. Overall it is a rather unique, but enjoyable aroma. Taste – A sweeter taste of some chocolate and a little bit of coffee are present initially. There is a nice dark malty backbone with some hints of sweet vanilla more toward the middle of the taste. At the very end there is a surge of hoppy flavors with the sweeter flavors fading to more bitter flavors. The bitter hoppy flavors and bitter flavors of chocolate and coffee take the taste to the end. Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is on the creamier side with a rather moderate to slightly below average carbonation level. For the style of the beer it was very fitting and made the beer very amendable to linger in the mouth for experiencing the whole flavor profile. Overall – A nice slightly sweeter porter with a nice aroma, mouthfeel and taste. Avery did a nice job here.
