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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2006 A deep dark red (ie black) body that even direct viewing of the sun barely penetrates (a handy beer to have for the next solar eclipse). The head poured thick tan but settled to splotches on the beer surface lacing the glass where it had once been. Nose has sweet coffee and caramel tones; flavor is similar but without the sweetness that lingers on the palate.

Dark brown with decent head. not enough malt character. This porter is overwhelmed by hops. I had to mix one with a London Fullers Porter to level out the hops.

Pours black with slight red glinting when held to the light. Has a small off-white head.Nice flavor-coffee, a little chocolate, smoke, and a woody oak taste. The dry hopping adds a nice hop kick at the end, something thatís uncommon in porters. Really good.

Blah. Muddy medium poor. Light bitter, hoppy taste. Very forgettable porter.

Poured from bottle dark amber color aroma of some licorice, raisins and vanilla. Taste of some medicine. This one is not for me.

Chocolate taste a bit too strong for my taste, and the dry hopped finish took me off guard. I have not been the biggest fan of Avery, but I need to try this again.

12oz. bottle into pint glass. Pours a thick dark brown with a thick tan head that does not diminish. Aromas of butter, camp-fire and roasted malts. Flavor is of coffee beans and caramel with a slight hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and thick. Proud to say this is my first dry-hopped porter. Iíll be sure to look for more in the near future.

At first there wasnít much to it and i was disappointed. The aroma was very faint with only a slight hoppiness. I let it sit for a few minutes to warm up, took another wiff and again, just a few faint hops and now some sweet malts. First sip and then Bam! its bursting with hops, caramel, toffee, and roasted malts and out sneaks a bouquet of aromas from left field. Very dry and bitter on the finish yet deep down in the back of your throat is a nice sweet maltiness. Another sniff and I smell chocolate licorice. Damn this is good. Be careful at 6.7% ABV.

Smells fresh, light and hoppy. Looks dark black with cream color head. Tastes very clean, hoppy, but with a thick cream edge. Med. bodied. Pretty good but not amazing.

Pours black with a lareg tan head. Aroma of hops, flavor of malt and hops. Definitely the hoppiest porter I’ve ever had. My rating is for originality, not for a traditional-style porter.
