The perfect robust porter: The sharp bitterness of the black malt sits nicely within the overall malty sweetness. Full bodied with a medium hop bitterness.

Six different malts are combined to create this complex Robust Porter. Perle and Willamette hops are added to fashion the perfect balance for which the Ten Pin is renowned.

This was ok. Iíve never been a big fan of SKA. I gave it a shot and got what I expected. There wasnít as much flavor with this as there are with other porters.

tmoreau (2636) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to rocks glasses, showing a black/brown hue, with a modest layer of brownish tan foam, and light, wavy lacing. The nose was roasted, with some char & smoke dryness. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste presented a barley-like graininess, moderate, earthy & woody bitterness, more noticeable cocoa notes upon warming, and a hint of brine, reminiscent of an oyster Stout. A fairly tasty & robust Porter.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a brown head. Taste chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. I thought this was so so. I would skip this in the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like it but not blown away. Decent taste of chocolate and coffee in the roasted malts and a faint smooth freshness from the hops. Not a bad porter.

Not a bad beer. I would take this beer bowling with me. Iím not real big on the taste of strong alcoholic beer so this one is good to me. Its not my favorite beer ever but honeslty I donít think I have tasted my favorite beer yet. Not sure why they call it a ten pin porter because after I drink one I feel like I only hit maybe seven pins. So I am renaming this beer the seven pin porter. It leaves you wanting about three more pins. God Bless the beer drinkers of the word and donít forget to chew your big red when you are done.
