Our most award-winning beer, Robust Porter honors the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name ďPorterĒ) in 19th century London, where the style originated.
Itís a good bet that when Dickensí Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, his beer would have been very similar to our Robust Porter. This smooth, deceptively drinkable beer features an assertive hop profile which accentuates signature flavors of coffee and dark chocolate.

Great! Iíve heard some have had bad bottles of this. Iíve never had a bad one, so it remains a top of the line porter for me.

Looks beautiful in the glass with a big brown head and rich brown body. Tastes like peanut butter and malt. Creamy texture. A bit sweet, but not too much. Nice dry roasty bitterness in the finish. A slight touch of alcohol. Really nice beer for the fall or winter. Just feels goo to drink.

Very dark black pour, large dark tan frothy head. Lactic cocoa and pine Earthy sweet coffee taste. Very good qualities, though, a lot of the forefront had a piney quality that didnít seem to fit.

Bottle from dirtymike. Thanks! Pours a rich, dark brown with a healthy head and nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is a bit of sour malt with a fusion of coffee and a hint of cherry in the finish. Palate is thin, but satisfactory. A good porter.

(on tap at Portsmouth Brewing) Deep black with small tan head. Nice lace. Roast coffee aroma. Roast coffee flavors with balanced hops and malt. Full bodied. Not a lot of smokiness. They could have called it a stout. Really excellent porter.

Liquid Smoke !!! Pours a dark black color with a creamy beige head. Smells very smokey, very coffeish, with a hint of roasted malts. Tastes like a stout at first sip. Coffee flavor spiced with smoked wood chips best describes the taste. One of the best porters iíve ever had, if not the best. Excellent.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Sample at the VTBrewfest - Poured a dark brown/black with a dense tan head. Aroma was malty with hints of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Excellent mouth feel. Flavor was of roasted malt, coffee astringency and a nice balance of malty sweetness. Finishes off with a smooth, lingering hop bitterness. Really good...

Draft. Baja Bean Staunton VA. Thick, blackish brown color, coffee colored head. Aroma of dark coffee, roasted flavored coffee, toasted malt, chocolate, etc. Mouth filling-- starts like a good draft stout, the sweetness of the porter style comes across in the middle, and it finishes more like a milk or oatmeal stout than a porter. Fantastic on tap.
