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.

Not as good as Fuller’s but still a great Porter. Pours a very dark brown/black with a thick light brown head. Thin, spidery lacing throughout. The aroma is roasty with hops and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a nice blend of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee flavors. The finish is roasty and lightly hopped and lasting. I liked this one.

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.

Bottle. Chocolate fudge malt and light orange peel aroma. Black-brown with small head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Interesting - pretty hoppy.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2004
Deep reddish brown colour. Berry fruit and burnt malt in the aroma. Roast malt again in the flavour, with chocolate hints. There’s some hop presence and a sour edge on the finish. Rather nice. Bottled, at the Brickskeller, with BuckNaked and Argo0.

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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Wonderful rich dark black color with a thick pillowy tan head that leaves a heavy lace as it subsides. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with a touch of western hops. Good thick body is filled with different malts, providing flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Finishes dry and mildly hoppy. Very smooth and balanced, this is a good porter.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Bottle. Beautiful deep mahogany pour with a thick and creamy caramel head... delicate lacing followed it down. Aroma was fairly large... sticky caramel, chocolate, and a bit of pine. Dry hopping left an almost sour bitter feel surrounding the mouth. Chocolate, roasted coffee, and caramel are smooth across the middle and pick up bitterness for the finish. Mouthfeel was a tad light, but that didn’t take much away from the enjoyment. Tasty porter!

crossovert (7000) - 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.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a light cocoa head. Roasty, chocolate, coffee aroma. Big roasty coffee flavor with a bit of hops. Medium bodied. Lingering roast and chocolate. Roastier than I expected.

Poured XX dark with nice mocha colored head. Excellent lacing. Aroma is chocolate, burnt black patent, and a hint of hops. Flavor has superb balance (in my mind) of chocolate malts, burnt black patent malts and sweet caramel malt flavor. The sweet caramel is what makes it for me. The sweetness is just enough to play against the dryer chocolate and much dryer black patent malts. Hops are just noticeable. Left with a balanced aftertaste. Best Porter I’ve ever had.
