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.

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.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Black in color with subtle hints of red...classic color. Dominating aroma of American fuggle hop (orange/cantaloupe) mixed with an estery profile and an underpinning of dark-roasted malt. Flavor is same as aroma but there is also an added smoke note. Malt character is a balance of soft chocolate and black, acrid malt in the background and a firm, smooth mouthfeel. Finish is dry malt and hop with a light bitterness and a distinct, extremely estery (fruity) profile. Licorice becomes part of the flavor profile as the beer warms.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Poured a dark ruby color which was not quite black with a thick brown head. Aroma had chocolate, citrus, graitfruit, caramel, coffee and espresso. Taste was like a Porter/IPA mix. Really interesting. The citrus and graitfruit hops are interesting in a Porter. The bitter coffee flavor was a little in your face. Otherwise this was good.

thegreenrooster (3210) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pour is a dark black with a nice size tan head. Aroma is nice with notes of chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is deep choco witha suprising amount of hoppy flavor to go along with the nice malts. Very tasty and another good one from Avery.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Deep ruby mahogany body. Big fluffy tan head, mostly lasting, leaving a nice thin sheet of lace. Toasty, hop mix nose. Roasty, chocolate, sweet caramel malts, nutty, toffee, earth. Light to medium body, which thickens a little with warmth. Finishes with an astringent, bittersweet, coffee like finish. Quite drinkable, I liked it better as the glass went on. Avery does some serious brews.

This beer comes courtesy of beerguy101...thanks for picking one up for me Mitch. This beer pours a blackened color with a fairly active tannish head and good levels of lacing which didnt quit throughout this beer. The aroma is pleasant... chocolate, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, oak, and citrusy pine permiate the room. The flavor is very full-bodied and tongue coating. Chocolate is all over the place here..very prevalent yet not grainy. Silky milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel and TONS and tons of bittering hops provide an interesting counterbalance. Fairly dry bittering finish, perhaps a note of almonds or nuts. Definitely something of a dessert beer. I like the high levels of hops here..provides a different look at the porter style.. Im a fan! Medium levels of carbonation.

Thick head that faded pretty fast. Black. I smelled typical roasty, choclate american style porter undeneath a huge hop aroma. Again there is a porter under all the hops, but the hops are too strong and the subtlety that typifies a great porter is buried. I’d LOVE to try this with a lot less hops I think there is a great porter in here it’s just bittered into oblivion by the hops.
