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.

Nose is malty, bready, chocolatey. First fills the mouth with RICH taste of roasted malts. Strong notes of coffee & chocolate. One of the more delicious beers I’ve had. Pretty malty up front, but the hops come out at the finish. Very creamy and rich, amazing.

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2013
12 oz bottle You can count on Avery brewing an excellent product. This is another beer that is very special. It poured a deep black color with a small tan head and lacing. This is the porter for people who love porters. The aroma of roasted malts assault your sense of smell The taste has roasted malt with some hints of hops. There is also hints of chocolate,coffee and maybe some licorice. What a special porter. This is the standard that all should aspire. The finish leaves you with a dry bitter aftertaste.

12oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head that faded slowly and leaves good lacing. Smells of chocolate, caramel and roasted malt. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but a little citrus is noticeable in the back end must be from the dry hopping. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a semi dry finish. What a good porter, very balanced and flavorfull. The dry hopping almost makes it a black ipa in my opinion.

foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: dark brown, nearly black. ’Chunks’ of sediment floating in suspension. Pours with a 2" beige head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Aroma: cocoa powder, coffee, citrus rind hops. Mouthfeel: medium and slightly chewy with a dry finish. Flavor: an echo of the aroma with cocoa, coffee, some carmel sweetness and a bold citrus rind bitterness that lingers in the finish. Overall: Good, but not great.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Pours an almost opaque ruby red with a thin head. Aroma is subdued and slightly sweet. Flavor is hoppy up front with a strong sweet malt backbone. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Chocolate comes through in the aftertaste.

Pours black with thin, lacing head. Nose of coffee with a shot of caramel. Malty roasted notes are superseded by a crisp hop bitterness. Really nice, full mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
