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.

Aroma smacks you over the head with hops. Pours almost opaque, nice head, thick lacing. Hops dominate the rest of the flavors. I’m not crazy about super-hoppy beers, but it kinda works against the heartiness of the porter. Drinkable, but not something I’d buy normally.

Tasted at my beer and cheese pairing. Good find by my friend BA. The aroma was robust with chocolate and coffee. The flavors, the same as the aroma, really came through when paired with the spicy cheddar.

12 oz bottle very dark. This one was a little too much for me. Too much going on at once. Very complex but almost overdone. A little hoppy in my opinion for a porter. Overall decent and drinkable but nothing special.

Dark opaque color in the glass. It has a mild roasted fruit aroma with some licorice. Taste has some raisins and some vanilla. There is also some medicine taste that lasts through the finish.

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.

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma big on roast, licorice, piney hops. Taste is bitter, roasty, pine and dark chocolate. Average hoppy robust porter

@ Party Town / Florence KY - Clear very dark mahogany with a long-lasting 1/2" tan head, bands and streaks of lace. Taste is strong porter - roasted malt with burnt toast, chalky chocolate, and bittering that is nearly sour w/o reflecting the natural taste of hops. A unique brew, but not strong enough to require sipping, not tasty enough for gulping. Verdict: good not great.

Draft. Muddy brown pour with no head. Aroma is caramel, slight nuttiness, earthy. Taste is toffee, caramel...these two stand out more than anything. Sweeter than I would like in a porter. Coffee and chocolate are there but not as pronounced.
