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.

rosenbergh (9501) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2010
355 ml bottle. Brought from Sweden. Courtesy of Brandman.
Reddish dark brown almost black colour with big fluffy sand head. Aroma is bitter hops, chocolate, some sweetness, roasted malt and dark fruits. Delightful combination of hoppy bitterness and Porter roastiness. Flavour is more straight forward with strong roasted malt flavour with coffee, liquorice, salty liquorice, dry bitter grassy hops and ash. There’s no sweetness nor chocolate in flavour. Rich and full.

DrSilverworm (9445) - 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

GT2 (9411) - 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 (9154) - 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.

arminjewell (9143) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours dark brown, nose with some hops and a lot of malty sweetness. Tastes up front of slight piny hops and then dives into the chocolate/coffee taste. Slightly unbalanced, but a good attempt and a decent beer!

DocLock (8956) - 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.

BOTTLE: Deep brown pour. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is roasted coffee, cocoa/chocolate, with a little hop kick.

3fourths (8878) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Beautiful deep brown with a tan head atop. Roasty coffee smells, with a spicy, alcoholic aroma as well. Taste is just about perfect for a nice porter: nice even hop flavor with good roastiness (huh?). Good amount of carbonation, with an overall fullness on the tongue.
