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.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Rich tan head tops a deep, dark brown body with a hint of red. Coffee, chocolate and fruit in the aroma. Slight grapefruit in the taste, chocolate malt, mostly sweet. Creamy. Good mouth feel.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Better than average micro porter. Not too hoppy, apparently it used to be but this one is nice and smooth. Overall an enjoyable beer. Relatively high ABV not noticeable.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2004
This beer pours a dark color with reddish hues around the outside edges. It has a small tan head that fades and leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts and caramel with a smoky characteristic. The flavor was much like the aroma: burned malts and caramel with a hint of coffee. Fairly smooth to drink and full-bodied. This just didn't satisfy my taste buds as well as I would have liked.

Dark, dark brown - hints of red poking through. The nose is roasty with raisins, dark fruit and light chocolate. Big hops at the front, coffee notes. Great balance, very nice porter.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Dark porter, small head. Nice hue. Aroma of a sweet malt, in Baltic style. Very nice clean composition. Complex twist of greatly made malt with hops. Very interesting and taste great too. Highly recommended for any porter lover!
