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.

arminjewell (9210) - 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!

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a very dark brown color with a half-inch thick tan head that sticks around. Aroma of roasted malts, smoked wood, chocolate, caramel, earthy hops, and brown sugar. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, smoked wood, earthy hops, caramel, and toast. Bitter and earthy for the style, with nice sweetness to balance and a dry finish. Medium-bodied, smooth, and robust. Very nice porter.

3fourths (8986) - 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.

DuffMan (8942) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nut-brown with amber highlights and a foamy tan head that reduces to chunky flotsam. Aromas of chocolate, beef broth, clay. Dominant flavour is chocolate, with nuances of coffee, aniseed, breadcrust, pine. Has a hearty briney character. Finish is resinous and bitter. Loved it.

pours ruby/black, thin golden/off white head Aroma is malty and chocolate, light scent of dark fruits and sweet, light notes of hops. Taste, light roasted malts, some coffee / toffee. Light addition of hops that adds for an original mouthfeel coupled with some dark fruits. Finish has a thin touch of caramel that ends smooth with bits of cocoa powder and hops..

marcus (8698) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a hearty treacle and chocolate aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and molasses, and is imbued with that unclassifiable taste characteristic that is common to most Avery brews. The body seems thin at first, but expands as the beer warms.

Skinnyviking (8561) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2008
Bottle. Head almost non-existant. Very dark red brown almost black body. Lowely smooth and pleasant coffee cocoa caramel aroma. Flavor mild and round cofrfee cocoa. Maybe the beer I had just before this was just too much more spicy and hoppy. Normally I would consider the Avery beers to be hoppy as well. This one seemed not to be. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste.
