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.

beertholomeus (668) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Rich coffee and chocolate aroma along with some roasted malt notes. Pours a rich, deep black with a dark tan one and a half finger head. Tastes of strong roasted malt flavor. Chocolate and coffee dominate the flavor. Medium to full body with a slightly creamy texture. Low carbonation and a chocolaty finish. Overall a very good robust porter.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle @ DTE tasting shared with Deanso, kermis, sic1314, JulianHuxley and jmgreenuk. Pitch black color, average sized brown head. Smell and taste malts, lightly roasty, nicely bitter but not too much. Not my best rating but I got distracted a bit and liked it too much so drank it a bit too quickly. Nice one!

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich roasted malt, chocolate, a little burnt wood and milk. Excellent. The taste burnt, roasted malt with some chocolate to smooth it out. It stays on the roasty/bitter side. The texture is softer with low carbonation. Nicely done.

Pours dark brown/black with a large mocha head, this beer smells of a lot of chocolate and some bitter coffee taste. Taste like chocolate and some coffee bitterness in the back, along with other notes such as caramel as well as biscuit.
