Not robust, but it is a nice porter. Low rating only because it said robust. Puppy’s breath is very cute name as it is a nice and friendly beer. Happy and good to come home to, but hopefully doesn’t pee on the floor. Slightly translucent black red. Aroma has barley and malt. Taste is calm with standard form. Nice mouth with felt/velvet feel. Nitro tap

On nitro. Pours a dark brown with a silky smooth, tan head. Mild roasted aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Light notes of chocolate and dark roast in the favors. Nothing remarkable.

12oz can at tasting. Brown black body. Sweet brown malt. Coffee aroma, taste. Toffee, sweet, sugary. Rather reminiscent of their brown ale.

koleminer20 (2115) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2015
From notes. 07/26. 22 oz bottle shared by Spencer. The pour is a dark dark brown or light black with a huge light tan head that prevented full pours for three different attempts. There is huge lacing left all over. The aroma is big on light chocolate and good roasted malt. There is a little lactose in there, but for a porter, it's pretty good. The flavor starts off not very good. Way too much carbonation. There is a lot of bitter cocoa and roasted malt. There is a strange metallic aspect to a light fruit that I'm not too fond of. It's still not bad. The mouth feel isn't really good. There is a ton of carbonation and it's really thin and light. The aftertaste is lingeringly chocolatey with a little roast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (6782) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle split @ CBC Clerko. Deep brown pour with a modest tan head. Fresh baked glazed donuts and pain au chocolate. Plenty of toasted grain. Assertive earthy coffee, burnt marshmallow and brown sugar. The taste is nicely balanced, not overly sweet or bitter. Chocolate donuts offset by robust coffee and hop bitterness. General charred grain. Smooth and easy to drink. Oily. Nicely executed.

Bottle. Dark ruby pour with a small, fading head and no lacing. A lot of chocolate in the aroma. Dark chocolate, cinnamon toast, and a little ripe fruit. Good stuff.
