This is a classic example of a Robust Porter. It is a ruby-hued black beer with a predominant roast malt flavor. The addition of black malt adds an underlying dryness which balances the sweetness of the crystal malts. If you love big beers this is one not to miss!

Had on draft at the brewery. There is a large roasted malt note that seems out of place in a porter. Dry and ashy, chocolate, soft caramel malt.
