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.

Draft. Brown color, medium brown head, solid lacing. Aroma of pine and roasty cocoa. Taste is milk chocolate, bitter finish. Like a black IPA. Decent stuff.

yngwie (14919) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle at Københavnske Øldage. Dark brown, clear-looking beer with a small, tan head. Sweet, chocolatey nose with some coffee and fruits. Sweet and chocolatey flavor as well, a little roasted, and lightly fruity. Mellow, silky mouthfeel. Very nice balanced and quaffable beer, but I would prefer it a bit heavier and bigger. (070512)

Dark brown nearly black with brown creamy head. Roasted coffee and caramel malty. Smooth filling body. Slight sweet before a dry bitter end. All around quite simple but very drinkable/pleasant!

MiP (14049) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2006

TBone (13710) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown color, small tan head. Crisp, a bit citric nose. Roasted, cold coffee flavor, medium-bodied. Quite tasty coffeish porter. Not too thin as it has some body to back up.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark burgundy colour. Robust aroma is hoppy, with chocolate and toast. I spend a lot of time sniffing this with my pen on the table, just because I wanted to enjoy it rather than analyze it. Toasty, nutty, complex porter with solid bitterness. Delicious.

bhensonb (12148) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Nutty, toasty aroma with maybe a hint of chocolate. Virtually no head, minimal lacing, but a reddish brown color that is magnificent. Starts with a warm cocoa flavor, passing to some sweetness, but enough hop shows up at the end to balance the whole. This may be the first ale (oops, porter) that I would credit with a nutty characteristic. The mouth feel is stout, the flavor is porter. Really a tour de force.
