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.

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.

From the Bottle. Pours pitch black with a large head that dissipates quickly. Sweet dark roasty aroma with grassy hops, smells good. Full bodied with a creamy rich mouth feel, carbonation is soft, some coffee and hop bitterness with a well rounded dark malt presence. Clean finish.

Tapped at Avery, a very dark red brown. The aroma is hoppy, and very malty. The taste is smooth, hoppy but malty enough to over power.

Tap at the brewery. A smooth porter with a great amount of hops, almost similar to an IPA in the hop content. Not too sweet. A thin body, easy to fall in love with.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2010
Pours a opaque dark brown. Tan head that fades to lace quickly. Roast malt, caramel, hints of chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Medium body. A caramel/coffee flavor, with hints of chocolate.Mild blend of sweet and bitter. A bit dry and smooth. The finish is semi dry with a hint of sweetness. I am not a regular drinker of porters, but I like this one.

Bottle. Pours pretty much black brown with a very small, quickly dissipating tan head. Very fragrant; bitter dark chocolate, roses, hazelnut, lavender. Very unique, interesting aroma. Flavor of coffee primarily, lavender, bitter peanut, unsweetened cocoa. Mouth feel is solid, about as thick as one wold expect from a potter. Aftertaste is again, strangely floral and coffee house at the same time; dark chocolate, coffee, medicinal flowers like chamomile, lavender, rose hips, orange rind. This is a crazy ass beer. Herbal, floral, and creamy and coffee at the same time? I’ve never tasted a beer quite like this. That does not necessarily mean this is the most delicious beer out there, but it is certainly unique.

3/30/14. Draft at Beer Market. Pours with a thin head. Nice dark and slightly sweet nose. Good balance of hop and malt with fairly complex roasted notes. Somewhat thin traditional porter mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
