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.

bhensonb (13854) - 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.

mcberko (13502) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of dry hops, roasted malt and molasses. Surprisingly complex flavour of prominent hops (much more so for a porter), roasted malt, sweet caramel, molasses and coffee. Very good.

FatPhil (13313) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2008
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Very dark, red glints, almost black; brief beige head. Very milky malty aroma. Anna says it’s just like a malted milk drink she had as a kid. Thick sticky mouthfeel - full of burnt starches - tons of heavily roasted malt, feels like it leaves dust on my tongue.

Ratman197 (12962) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2011
On tap at Avery poured a clear dark brown with a large lasting tan head. Aromas of roastiness, cocoa, carmel, pine resin and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, roastiness, pine, light carmel and a hint of grapefruit with a smooth lingering moderatly bitter piney finish.
