COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drake’s Black Robusto Porter is a deep, dark “Robust Porter,” a beer style known for being darker, fuller-bodied, and higher in alcohol by volume than a standard Brown Porter. Our Black Robusto goes down smoothly with flavors of bittersweet chocolate an slight roast from Crystal and Chocolate malt. A touch of spicy, herbal hop character from Willamette hops balance out the finish. Enjoy a pint with dark, lingering satisfaction.

olio (7840) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2015
65 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego.
Pours pitch black color with a small beige head. Caramel aroma, roasty, chocolate, some licorice. Flavor is sweet with caramel and chocolate, roasted malts and syrup. Slightly too sweet for my taste, could use a bit sturdier body too. A bit disappointing.

Seriously thick tan head. Dark black body. Intense roasted coffee aroma. Flavors of the espresso and black licorice. Very chewy body. Slightly bitter finish. Would definitely buy this again!

I enjoyed the chocolate flavor and thicker mouthfeel of this porter. Not quite as creamy as a stout but not as thin as a porter. Slightly nutty and maybe a little coffee as well. Dark roasted malt but not burnt.

Draft from notes summer 2014. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, some coffee, chocolate, burnt toast, hints of spicy hops, moderate bitterness to the finish, pretty straightforward robust porter although just a bit thin.
