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.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is big roast, molasses, caramel, liquorice. Flavour is very roasty with big liquorice and some roasty malt. Nice.

Aroma is dark cocoa powder, roasted malts. Taste is dark cocoa, some smoke, ashy, dry woody earth. Not too rich or roasty. Reminded me of a sessionable Dry Stout.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Black body, moderate airy head. Well-rounded porter. A complex beer that isn’t overpowering. Would make a solid session beer.

Ron (2687) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle in San Jose. Pours black with a medium brown head and great lacing. Aroma is dominated by coffee and coco, with some burned notes from the roasted malts. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet, light coffee bitter, with burned notes. Medium body.

kaser (3119) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Dark brown black pour with brown foamy head from a 22oz bottle at home. Roasty, nutty, malty and burnt leaves aroma. Taste is basically the same with chocolate and cocoa added and a touch of coffee. Very smooth and good.

slowrunner77 (6088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"22 oz. 6.3% abv. Jet black pour. Flavor and aroma of toasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of hops are robust indeed. Feel is a bit thinner but this drinks very smooth.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Un bomber. Une robe foncée, un nez très agréable de chocolat fondu au lait. Une bouche dont les saveurs ne sont pas agréable. Une finale sur les tootsie roll.

SlovakSniper (3369) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
Robe presque noire qui montre un anneau de mousse avec des parfums fins et des saveurs délicates de chocolat, de grains rôtis acides, de caramel, de noix et de houblons. En bouche, le corps du liquide est représentatif du style : léger et bien aéré par les bulles. L’arrière-goût montre un grain noir sec avec une belle touche épicée. Loin d’être grandiose mais facile à boire tout de même.
