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.

crossovert (11013) - Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2014
355ml bottle. The description up here is humorous. Dark pour, crea smell is nice, almost strictly burnt roasted malts with a nice caramel, coffee, cocoa, and hop backing. The flavor is nice, lots of peat and cocoa, coffee, hints of melon which is strange but nto upsetting, sharp and dry, nicely robust. Decent porter.

Sammy (10885) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
Nice head and lace. Chocolate and hops in aroma, hoppy porter. I think less hops would be better, this would be interesting if on tap.

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.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Very dark brew. When held up to white hot halogen, the beautiful crimson hue shines through. Lovely! Medium-sized khaki head. Creamy, but quickly dissipating. Decent lacing. The nose indicates a well-hopped beer with notes of flowers and pine along with dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Also, a beefy/spicy note of some kind... unidentified, but very nice. Deeply roasted and malty sweet flavor up front. Moderately bitter with more malty sweetness on the backside. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet, syrupy, chewy finish. Very good beer. I would have to say that my fellow Ratebeerians are right on the nose with their average ratings regarding this brew.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Pours a dark orange/brown body with a creamy tan/brown head. Piney bitterness in the nose along with some dark malts. Flavor has a piney bitterness element followed a fairly robust chocolate malty body. A good hoppiness and dark malty flavor on the finish.
Earlier Rating: 1/22/2011 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown body with a big brown and creamy head. Dark Chocolate malts in the nose that are dominated by an intense piney hopiness. Flavor begins with a piney hoppiness followed by the typical characteristics of a porters- creamy, smooth, dark malty body. Very interesting version that’s quite unique.
