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.

Christian (11054) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Black with a mid sized, disappearing off-white head. Chocolate and coffee aromas mix with floral hops. Has a distinct roast bitterness, but with a rich and soft body. Long lasting roast aftertaste

bhensonb (10908) - 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.
