Our robust Porter shows bittersweet flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. It has very complex malt character enhanced by yeast fruitiness.

Growler fill from Aw Shucks. Poured a black brown, slight head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Full mouthfeel, fairly big, a bit more roast than expected, bordering on stout territory. Some faint fruitiness on the finish, undefined, but complementary of the malt show. Enjoyable brew, felt like I hadn’t had a beer like this in a long time. Liked this more than the score would indicate I think.

A really good porter! It doesn’t have the overly chocolate/caramel/sweetness that oftens ruins other porters. Great stuff.

EithCubes (5461) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Nose of light coffee and roast malt, chocolate, cocoa, light tang. Pours dark brown-black with a rocky tan head. Taste light-medium sweet, very low bitterness, low tang but a nice feel of twist/semi-pucker in the mouth. Roast and chocolate as above. Fullish body. Very solid double porter, hides its alcohol well.

floydslip (326) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Opaque tootsie roll brown beer with a medium foamy beige head that is a bit darker around the perimeter. Roasted nose of caramelized sugar, candied nuts, and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is actually quite mild for a porter, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. It has a light toasty malt bitterness followed by some deep chocolate, and then ends with a subtle sourness. None of the flavors is particularly strong, but they offset each other nicely. A good porter for people who prefer lighter beers or those who want a change of pace.
