4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
So this guy poured a solid motor oil with off white head. It smelled of sweet chocolatey coffee and tasted much the same. Itís body seemed a little thin for how rich the flavor was, but overall a really enjoyable beer. Iíd have it again for sure. As with most beers I really enjoy out of the bottle, Iíd want to give the tap a go!

Bottle. Dark brown with golden highlights. Quite a chocolatey porter, with some breadcrusts and caramel flavours too. Not a lot hop presence, but Iím not sure about the age of my bottle. Satisfying.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with thanks to Owen. Pours a very dark brown with a creamy light tan coloured head. Aromas are not overly apparent. Somewhat sweet with some roasted character. Flavours are much the same. Initially kind of sweet before some roasted grain on the finish. Thinnish mouthfeel. A little underwhelmed to be honest.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
cola with fading tan head. Aroma/flavor are light roastiness/coffee, a light-to-moderate dose of neutral sweetness, making it resemble a milk stout, some bittering hops. Other than this, the beer did not make a lasting impression. I donít think it should be termed a "robust" porter. The body was light than I would have liked, and the flavor should have been fuller. Meh.

Pours a dark brown color, tan head. Smell is very roasty and chocolatey. Taste is much the same, roasted malts and chocolate. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, I like this beer a lot one of Big Skys better regular beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, light fruitiness and faint caramel and vanilla, along with burnt sugar and smoke in the background. Black in color with a lasting, fine, uneven, tan head. Flavor is roasty and full of dark chocolate sweetness throughout, with suggestions of coffee and black bread, some herbal, earthy, spicy hop flavors and finishing with a moderate dosage of drying hop bitterness and lingering roasted malt character. Appropriately sharp and effervescent on the palate with a medium-full body. This is a pretty tasty and true to style Robust Porter, certainly worth a try for any fans of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of Big Skyís best releases. Very rich porter with a dark malty finish. Rich in flavor but not much of a top.

from the Big Sky sampler pack, pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma is big mocha and roasted malts with some burnt sugar as well. Flavor is big, roasty and dry with lots of dark coffee and semi-sweet cocoa. Very dry finish. Top notch porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of coco and roasted malts. Gorgeous pour: black color with a nice tan head and bad ass lacing. Tastes as good as it looks, flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, with a crisp resin finish. Alcohol is hidden very well and itís smooth on the palate. All in all, this is truly a robust brew, donít pass it up!
