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.

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.

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.
