Big chocolate, roasted and mocha notes are the key to this style. A wise country football coach once said “theres no point half doing something”. And in making this porter we’ve taken his advice on board, our Robust Porter uses plenty of roast barley and chocolate malt to give you a big porter that wont leave you asking for more.

Try this one with dark chocolate and liquorice. Bridge Roads Porter, like many of its beers, pulls no punches. Make no mistake, the Robust Porter is big and bold, yet its smooth raosty texture makes it one to convert the non-dark drinker. Match it with rich chocolate deserts, cold winter nights or freshly shucked oysters.

Smells like wet dog(most likely bad glass). Black with off-white head. Taste like a coffee porter watered out with sodawater. Thin.

Kurtos (137) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark black colour Aroma. smells of roasted malt backed by a nice smokiness and slight syrupy sweetness. Taste. a nice smokiness is there throughout, and what i can best describe as a roasted cocoa and roasted malts in general. Overall. nothing too special, but still drinkable.

Patersoi (84) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Pours with an aggressive big bubble head that manages to dissipate in to a dense long lasting caramel foam. Smoke dominates the aroma promising more. Slightly thin mouth feel and the smoke is there but very nicely balanced off by the sweet malt. Chocolate and hazelnut linger in the long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (3902) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle@oldbank. Black, frothy tan head. Chocolate, sweet roast, dark berries on nose. Well carbonated. Some sours. Roasty, slight ashy with a slight aceto finish. Flavourful ok porter. Dry, bit harsh really. Might be unintended though, considering the acidicy, carbonation and all. Ok like this too.

Bottle. This is a pretty good porter. A bit hard to find in Sydney, but if I see it again I’ll revisit for sure.

RafeAU (553) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Tasting at Plonk. Strong coffee roasted flavours and bitterness dominate. Okay. Rerating 4 August 2015 from bottle won in Durham raffle. Pour dark brown black with small tan head that disappears quickly. Huge dark malty aroma. medium carbonation, roastiness, slight astringency that I prefer absent in these styles. Pretty nice.

Enjoyable richly flavoured porter. Dark colour, light had, coffee tones without any burnt characters. Clan palate. Yum, try more.

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Opaque black color, small beige head. Dry tobacco ash, vegetables in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Tobacco, some wood, light notes of vegetables. Too ashy for my liking.
