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.

DuffMan (7622) - 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.

Skinnyviking (7595) - 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.

chriso (7482) - 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.

phaleslu (7362) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2006
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.
