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.

This brew poured a small head of light brown colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a opaque black colored body with no visible carbonation and a good lacing. The aroma is mild and contains notes of hop and malt. The mouthfeel is very hopped and tingly right from the start on through the finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. The flavor is a combination of coffee, malt, hop, caramel, mollasses and roasted notes. Very tasty and has a lot of character to it even though it is a strange combination for a porter.

Black with a tan thin head, hoppy nose with evergreen and pine and hops in the taste. Interesting overall

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Nice creamy head, dark red body. Solid medium body. Taste is somewhat toasted, but mainly bitter. This is like a darker version of their ESB, only not as good. Quite hoppy, but there’s just not that much else to it.

BrewDad (4844) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2006
[Bottle - Johns Market] A good dark brown porter. A good even aroma. This had a nice easy to drink flavro. Was missing some of the good strong chocolate and roast flavors but was a good brew. Easy to drink.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2004
This beer pours a dark color with reddish hues around the outside edges. It has a small tan head that fades and leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts and caramel with a smoky characteristic. The flavor was much like the aroma: burned malts and caramel with a hint of coffee. Fairly smooth to drink and full-bodied. This just didn't satisfy my taste buds as well as I would have liked.

craven5000 (99) - Westville, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2004
Dark caramel pour. Easy tan head that slowly dwindled. Dark body with noticeable red hints. Slightly sweet for a second before the bitterness and dark chocolate with a hint of coffee came through. The bitterness was long lasting. Medium mouth feel.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 1, 2006
(on bottle) Deep dark brown, white head. Sweet aroma, casis and cola. Quiet carbonation, along with a malty full taste. Nite dryness in finish, In the long finish it get´s more soft and barley-like.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
Dark brown color. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor is based on caramel, with a hint of roasted malt and liquorice and coffee. A bit dry and not mature.
