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.

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

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2005 Shoulda known - "new world" - means hops. Burnt brown which is almost black. Brown froth, holds. Delicious chalky burnt malts, and sweet - molasses. Too green aroma, too green flavors on top. But it’s good. I would have much preferred this with toned down hoppage. It’d be a better porter with less hops. addendum: I’m not going to change the review score because this doesn’t strike me as a porter. It’s damn good though. Beautiful fruits lead into ruby grapefruit. Yeah, yeah I can drink this easily.

Pours a very dark brown/black with a thick light brown head. Thin, spidery lacing throughout. The aroma is roasty with hops and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a nice blend of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee flavors. The finish is roasty and lightly hopped and lasting.

Aroma is full of hops and chocolate notes. Clear dark brown appearance with a long lasting tan head and great lacing. The flavor is hop forward with a smooth malty roast taste. Medium-high bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth with a medium carbonation. Overall, a great robust porter with a smooth bitterness. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

APPEARANCE: Pours an opaque dark brown color with large tan head that has good retention. Lots of sticky lacing. AROMA: Sweet caramel chocolate and roasted malt. There are hints of roasted nuts. FLAVOR: Not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Predominate flavor is the roasted malts and reminds me of coffee. There are some piney hops that coats the tongue at the finish. MOUTHFEEL: A medium-full bodied beer that has a creamy almost chewy texture. Soft fizzy carbonation. DRINKABILITY: A quality easy drinking porter. However, I would prefer a little more sweet malts to balance it out. NOTES: BBCSD-0901-Carl

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Hoppy aroma which are fairly light up front and slowly fade away. Dark pour with only about a quarter inch of head. The hops and porter taste balance each other out.

Tastey, heavy porter. I would say this porter is very stylistic and overdid coffee theme of porters. A little overpowering. I would like a bit more barely and less coffee taste but still nice.

Bottle. Dark with reddish tint. Large luxurious beige head with some nice lacing going on. The aroma is a large dollop of vanilla mixed with dark malt, some milk chocolate and with a hint of hop grapefruit in the back. Lovely! A very nice smooth moth-feel, with light carbonation and a medium long better finish. The taste is dominated by roasted malts with an edge of bitter, dark chocolate. Some sweetness there as well, and as it worms up a very nice coffee note creeps in. It is rather light bodied, and fairly bitter. Now, I like my porters and stouts to be full bodied and perhaps not so bitter, but this is actually very good.

StPeteBeerMan (52) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Tan head with a near black body. The aroma is dominated by floral hops. First taste is of floral hops fading quickly to an excellent balance of roasted malts with some coffee notes. Excellent smooth mouth feel, medium body, leaves a nice aftertaste of roasted malts on the tongue. An outstanding hoppy porter.
