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, from Julio’s. Good nose, sweet. Chocolate, caramel, pine. Clean brownish black color, nice head that stays a while. Bitter sweet flavors, Chocolate, caramel, little grapefruit, pine. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet finish. Nice brew, of course Avery hops up a porter. Makes it delicious.

12oz. bottle. A Nice bitter bite from the dry-hopping process and sweet caramel flavors follow into the finish. Perfectly balanced and a great beer to enjoy all-year-round. This beer shouldn’t be served too cold. The flavors are much more alive around room temp.

12oz. bottle. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Complex aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and citrus hops. Roasted malt comes out more in the flavor, as does the chocolate. The hops are still there, but more on the finish. A bit tart in it’s aftertaste.

08.16.05 12oz bottle. Quite dark, near black with auburn edges; sticky tan head laces as it fades. Aroma is not at all expected, lots of c-hops, citrus, pine, and mint. Huh. Well, I’m not a big fan of this sort of approach to hops in a roasty and choco brew--not usually. Aromas are dominated by hops in such a way that one might guess this to be an IPA if smelled blindly. Flavor is a different story. Deeply roasted and plenty of chocolate. If you like chocolate and citrus candies, this is the stuff for you. Nice full body with added unctuous love from the dry hopping. Burnt coffee and grapefruit linger long after the effy and dry finish. I don’t know what this stuff is exactly, but it’s pretty freakin good.

A great porter. I am surprised to read it was dry hopped because I noticed no hops at all. Aroma of an oatmeal stout. Surprisingly complex flavor for a porter; port, fruit, chocolate and coffee. A little sweet. I needed a reminder that porters can be interesting.

Black color with no head. Aroma of sour coffee. Bitter grain taste with some stale coffee on the finish. This is no porter...

12oz - Aroma is thick with roasted malts and chocolate. Pours a solid black with a thick brown head and decent lacing. Flavor is also roasty malt, chocolate, carmel, and a bit of hop. Sticky flavorful palate goes down smooth. A really nice porter.

draft - brewery. Go visit Avery and meet "Handtruck". He gives an excellent tour and will drink with you at the end answering any and all questions you might have. New World Porter is described as a "black IPA" . It is dark and roast to start, a little malty, but then it hits you with hoppiness not normally associated with porters. It finishes hoppy, tasty, and dry. A very unique beer!

Delicious indeed. Beautiful dark appearance, aroma, and flavors of chocolate and caramel. The dryness and fruits in the finish result in a brew to have again and again.

Bottle 12oz. Reddish/ black hue with medium brown head that diminished slowly. Full complex aroma of roasted malt, citrus and coffee. Full body with smoky texture. Very good complex flavor with a small alcohol bite at the finish. Very good porter.
