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.

mcberko (11940) - 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.

thewolf (11841) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (11662) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a large, creamy, brown head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, toffee, nutty), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (leather, broth) with notes of dates, plums, and charcoal. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

madsberg (11255) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2006
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Dense light brown head. Sweetish, chocolatish, light roasted, spiced and herbal aroma. Quite delicious. Flavour is smooth. Loads of chocolate and a mild roastiness in the flavour. Fruits is there, herbs are there and some vague spicenotes. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry mouthfeel. Balanced. Ends on a light roasty bitterness with some choconotes. Good one and just what I needed today after a long day at work.

daknole (10785) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
A unique porter. Dark, dark brown, but light does pass through it. A nice tan head that lasts for a bit. Aroma is hops and more hops. Flavor is hoppy and a tad bitter. Strong coffee flavors are present as well...if you like dark beers and hops then this is the beer for you.
