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.

yngwie (13127) - 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)

TBone (12333) - 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 (12167) - 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.

thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2007
Bottle. 33 cl. Pours almost black with only slight red edges. Small off white head that stays. Aroma is quite hoppy on a base of roasted and chocolate maltyness. Dry at first, then you feel quite a lot of baby bubbles. The dryness comtinues, gaining more flowery bitterness, chocolate and a touch of roasted.
