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.

Dark brown amber in colour with a creme head. Tastes strongly hopped with a smoothness in the finish with notes of chocolate and caramel. Tasted more like a black ipa but whatever, good beer regardless.

12oz Bottle. Pours dark red brown with a lacy tan head. The aroma consists of roastiness, coffee, chocolate, smoke, and a little ginger or pepper. The taste is moderately sweet and fairly bitter with a slight astringent mouth feel that lingers.

Smells strongly of coffee and chocolate. Has a very bitter taste and feel on the tongue. It’s definitely dry and "just strange" according to Jonathan.

Dark roasted malt aroma: chocolate, coffee, and hazelnut. Burnt coffee and chocolate flavor. Some lingering hop flavor: spicy, floral, and earthy. An interesting expression of a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark opaque pour with short white head. Traces of deep purple through the light but sits black otherwise. Smells of sour milk, salty caramel, dark fruity malt, light coffee chocolate and hop. Mouth is alive. Tastes of mild roasty malt mingle nicely with bitter hop finish. Not huge but drinkable, easy going porter. Nice Avery brew, and worth a 6er.

weak palate, but sprprisingly refreshing porter. a little smoky and dry, not as sweet as many, comparable to Yuengling Porter. Porter is my favorite type of beer and I would consider this porter to be an excellent everyday brew. I don’t like most of Avery’s brews, but this is one I would buy again.

Malt, bread and light coffee dominate the aroma. Lovely balance combined with the fact that I am a fan of dry, roasted and bitter finishes = A winner. A great porter indeed.

Bottle. 12 fl. oz. A dark brown, almost black, beer with frothy, light tan head. Aromas of mocha and hops.Carbonation tingles the tongue as it goes down. Medium to full bodied with soft, dry texture. Flavor Is sweet caramel and cocoa with toasty bitterness. Mmmm.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head. Light, almost non-existent aroma. Perfectly balanced flavor of coffee, caramel with just a bit of hops. I was expecting much more hops to come though based on the description, but was pleased with the result. Palate is thin, but in accordance with the style. Overall a fantastic Porter. Will certainly come back for seconds.
