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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark black with a very hoppy aroma. Nice medium, smooth body. Lots of hops in the throughout the beer but not at all dry or bitter. Very interesting dry hopping, like nothing I’ve ever hard before. If you like hops & porters, definitely do not pass up this beer. Overall (B+)

Poured from Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a dark brown with light ruby colored edges and has a finger of rich beige colored head that dissolves into a lasting layer around the glass. Very classy presentation. Aroma is full of roasted malts and a lot of smoke. Flavor is piney hop bitterness upfront with some roasted malts and ends up smokey with a light lasting bitterness. Its a light- to medium-bodied beer that is booming with flavor. There really isn’t any "searching" for flavors in this beer, its all pretty in your face. Just the way I like it. Very well done. The aroma almost reminds me of a light Alaskan Smoked Porter.

The dry-hoppiness overshadows some of the chocolate accents which I always look forward to when sipping a porter. However, I give the folks at Avery credit for crafting a porter-style that is tasty and unique from the traditional malty English version. Worth the six pack trial run, but I believe I'll stick with Anchor Porter or Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald.

Pours a blackish brown with creamy tan head that takes a little time to settle. Nose is pretty hoppy with some nice roasty malt notes. Flavor is also thick with a strange hoppy citrus like flavor. A unique porter with a nice hop profile.

Pours a nice dark brown (almost black) with a thick tan head. Aroma is pleasant with notes of malt, roasted, smoke and fruit. This beer has a perfect palate, nice and creamy with a crisp finish. Flavors are chocolate, coffee, malts, caramel, and some vanilla. An Outstanding Porter !!

12 oz. A reasonably good porter though not exceptional. Hardly "robust" as described. The dry hopping adds support to the finish but not much on the palate. Toffee and light roasted grain. A decent dry porter...
