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.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Itís a very dark brown porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is very nice with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavour also has notes of chocolate with hints of licorice, coffee and a bit of dark fruits. IMO itís a really nice one.

slowrunner77 (10112) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"hopped as heavily as some imperial porters, without the big body or heavy roasted flavors and abv. the body is a little thin, but smooth. the aroma and taste with the malt and dry hopped balance really works, especially as it warms. if it had more body, itíd be among my favorite porters."

djd07 (10018) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head. The aroma is very hoppy with caramel and chocolate. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a roasted malt with cinammon and a spicy dry finish. A good porter from Avery.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours deep brown/ruby with a big, cream, tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and chocoff. Tastes malty, with big chocoff, fruit, and a roasty, somewhat rauchy finish. Medium in palate and fairly dense and bold. To me, this is an awesome porter...certainly a repeat buy, and a top 25er.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. A deep, black ruby pour yields no head of significance and no lace. Pepper and spice in the nose along with molasses. Taste is olive, cardboard, pepper, chalk. Iron and heavy metals come through. Dominant character is cardboard. I have here in my notes: "Tastes like Wal-Mart receipts soaked in cigarette water." Typical Avery mess.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Dark brown body. Nice raisniy fruity aroma. Vinuouse body a nice sweet falvour with the tiniest bit of roastiness. This is a very nice porter.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2012
12oz bottle. Black color with a red hue, thin light brown head, good lace. Slightly translucent. Light and crisp/smooth carbonation. Hoppy and malty aroma, some chocolate. Satisfying amount of hops, definitely a black IPA (and a pretty good one, too). Mostly bitter. Some sweet taste, a bit of spice. Tasty enough to be called drinkable

Fin (9582) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Had this at the Orsted cafe/bar, Kobenhaven 13-09-08 Don’t recall who shared this one, probably Ian (Harrisoni) but thanks to whoever. Poured dark, dark brown with nice chocolate and hops. This is smooth enjoyable and moreish, notes are getting less and less as the evening wears on.
