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.

Rich chocolaty cocoa coffee and caramel all mixed into one. Dark brown pour with minimal head. Lots of maltiness. Very bitter finish. Great beet.

Aroma is hoppy, pine, sweet citrus, then malty, coffee, porter scent. Appearance is a very dark brown, close to black, not much head. Taste is complex, mostly porter flavors but finishes hoppy. Mouthfeel is thinner than I would hope but not too thin. Overall, this is an interesting take on a porter that everyone porter fan should experience.

deep bull moose black beverage with a sunset sheen of red. luxurious cushion of tan foam that could just about float a penny, and more lacy sheets than a french brothel. as for the beer’s engineering, i wouldn’t know a dry hop from a drenched one, but the aroma is corpulent and fruity and your nose does a double take: it seems there’s a milky way bar in there too. the texture is smooth with peripheral vivacity in the form of microscopic effervesence. what light sweetness there is becomes truncated by muscular bitterness. a strong tea flavor, like sucking on a bag of orange pekoe. full bodied and serious tastiness throughout.

Great hop aromatics and flavor work rather nicely with the chocolate and roasted flavors in this remarkable porter. I happen to like hoppy porters--some may not. This is perfect for me. Great head retention and lovely ruby-ebony body. Top drawer.

Great stuff. A dry hopped porter is something a bit different, but it's really good. Like most people have picked up on, chocolate notes, some coffee, hint of caramel, and a bit of spicy hoppy goodness to round it out. I'd certainly drink more of this.

draft - brewery. Go visit Avery and meet "Handtruck". He gives an excellent tour and will drink with you at the end answering any and all questions you might have. New World Porter is described as a "black IPA" . It is dark and roast to start, a little malty, but then it hits you with hoppiness not normally associated with porters. It finishes hoppy, tasty, and dry. A very unique beer!

Pours to a reverse cascading foamy/rocky tan head atop a dark mahogany body. Excellent lacing. The aroma is full of Cascade hops. Dark chocolate, pine and citrus hops, smoked malts. The flavor is charcoal, roasted malts, spruce hops, chocolate, hop resin. The palate is tangy and lively. Medium bodied. This is a really good beer. Similar in flavor to Koff Porter, but smells like a smoked IPA. Try this if you can.

This beer pours a deep a;most black reddish color with litle to no head. It has a roasty deep rich smell to it. Very rich roasty flavor. I can surely taste the dry hopping in this beer! Very unique for a porter! Well crafted beer I will be drinking again! Cheers!

12 oz bottle. Black Pour with a really nice brown head. Aromas were very chocolate and coffee with some anise in there too. Didn’t pick up the hops really, but I didn’t know this was dry hopped, so really wasn’t thinking about them. More chocolate/coffee flavor and a very nice burnt malt flavor. Porter dustiness was lessened on the finish and there was a bit of hop bite noticible. Maybe one of my favorite porters.

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 !!
