Truly fantastic. Extremely well balanced and easy to drink while being super hoppy. It’s got a lot of roasty malt, hazelnut, a little chocolate. There’s hops all over it as well, but they strongly accent, without dominating. Bitter piney, a bit of resin. The carbonation is very fine, and it goes down with a moderate finish.

16.9 oz. bottle from Village Market, Hampton Falls, NH. $6.50. Aroma is bitter chocolate, coffee, and generous amounts of pine hops. Solid flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, wood and the pine hops that I smell. charred notes. On the hoppy side for a porter. Dry texture with lingering pine and Earthy bitterness. A very nice brew, job well done.

’Do what’s right’ says this beer under the ape mascot’s photo. And at a phenomenal 99 overall score, they did. Chocolate cake, smokey strong coffee and even some hearty hops shine through on the aroma. A jet black color, tan lacing. Taste of bitter coffee and cigars, with just enough alcohol bite to let you know it’s there. Heavy body, though not sludgey, it is certainly filling. Great beer for a cold winter morn.

Coffee, chocolate, and licorice in the aroma. Flavor starts slightly sweet with coffee and chocolate, then finishes with some piney bitterness, almost like a cross between a porter and an IPA. Not what I expected, but still good.

bmerz (715) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle. Pretty much black with a orange tan head, partially lasting with a little lace. The aroma starts milk sweet, has a moderate roast and potent spicy, piney hops. The flavor is also more hop forward that a classic porter with bitter chocolate, tangy espresso, stronger roast, and bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a standout. It’s full and lively with a heavy citric linger. It’s certainly a great beer but goes more towards an American stout than I prefer in a porter, American and Robust or not.
