Like a big Chocolate, Espresso infused Brownie, Roebling porter packs a lot a flavor from the use of fresh Organic Ugandan Vanilla beans, Organic Peruvian Espresso/Coffee, and Natural Raw Cane Sugar! 7.8% ABV 35 IBU, 31 SRM

Chocolate dominates this.brew, but it is dry and bitter. It is excellent. Perfect carbonation. This brew is awesome!

Pours like every other porter. Roasted malt, smoke, coffee, and chocolate in the aroma. Carbonation gives a bit of bite, Flavor isnít quite as big as the aroma sets up, but itís well balanced and has a wonderful finish. Charred oak lasts forever. Nice, but not amazing

burg326 (4438) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle, poured a dark brown, almost black color with aromas of coffee, vanilla, sweetness, light roast and some chocolate. Flavors are the same, light and refreshing as a porter can be on the palate, this was an a great beer that exceeded my expectations.

Black in color with beige head. Aroma of roast coffee. Taste is roasted malt with chocolate. Tastes more stout like than most porters. Overall a pretty solid porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Although Porters are not my favorite, I found this one quite good. Excellent malty flavors coupled with a balanced hop flavor made this a a pleasant drink. I found it very similar to a stout, so Porter purists may not enjoy it as much as I did. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shigadeyo (3180) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/11/2011: Rivertown Roebling Vanilla Espresso Imperial Robust Porter... Aroma: Vanilla and milk chocolate with subtle roasted malt and cocoa. Appearance: Ruby-brown color with a lofty beige-colored head. Flavor: Vanilla and sugary caramel; very soft and subtle roasted coffee beans; cola and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Palate: Soft and smooth; medium-bodied; gentle carbonation. Overall: Drinkable with lots of good intention and POTENTIAL, but too reserved and entirely underwhelming for the style.

Growler fill (draught, 7.8% ABV) from Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #79 for this beer.
