COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most award-winning beer, Robust Porter honors the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London, where the style originated.
It’s a good bet that when Dickens’ 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.

Smells and tastes of chocolately coffee, but mostly coffee. Roasted, tasty malts all throughout. Finishes dry. Very nice.

Ungstrup (32210) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2004
A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is of chocolate and coffee. While the flavor is sour with notes of coffee leading up to a dry end. But the body is unfortunately thin. Thanks Mike for trading this one with Jeppe.

Awesome looking porter. Dark, dark brown body topped with a thick, foamy, beige head. Roasted malt aroma. Mostly coffee in the flavor. A little bit of chocolate, a little burnt. Great porter!

Dark brown body, thick brown head. Coffee, lots of it, in the aroma with a roasted tone. Dark roasted almost burned flavor, again with plenty of coffee, Little thin in the finish. Another good one from Mike (Eyedrinkale)!

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Bottle - thanks to slob! Pours ebony brown with a large foamy tan head that diminished mostly. Lovely aroma, rich roasty chocolatey malts and floral, earthy hops. Sweet, sweet malt flavor, hints of chocolate with a coffee bitterness and tart and dry, hop finish. Full body and tingly carbonation. Very enjoyable beer. Yea Bert!

Bottled: Pitch black coloured. Light brown dense head. Coffee, roast, malt and light fruit notes in the aroma. Flavour is cholatish and roasty and somewhat watery. Thin bodied and light roasty in the end.

Loads of coffee in the nose, very intense. Black body, with a ruby tint, small tan head. Coffee and roasty flavor. A bit thin in the flavor.

chandernagor (39) - Oak Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Black with a large tan head. Aroma is rather sweet, with chocolate, caramel and raisins, but roasted as well. Flavor starts sweet (chocolate, brown sugar) and quickly turns into a bitter espresso-like taste, with smoke and burnt at the end. Light carbonation and oily texture. This ends up so bitter it is almost salty...

Beautiful thick khaki head that is huge at first but will minimize to a thin frothy head. Lacing leaves a bit of a smeared tan residue on the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel and smells just like mocha ice cream. Strong in its taste compared to other porters but then again thats why its called robust porter. A rich flavor of cocoa bean and caramel syrup. Light chocolate added but is barely noticeable. Thanx Eyedrinkale

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 Trade from Eyedrinkale. Thanks. Smelled like warm just baked chocolate cookies and fresh brewed coffee. Poured like a stout. Dark black with a pinky thickness head that stuck around. Looked like a perfect stout pour instead of a light frothy porter. Flavor was creamy chocolate malts, but still roasty and full in the middle with a slightly bitter black chocolate and coffee finish. The taste of a stout too just thinned down a little. Bitter end, but more of the chocolate and coffe and even some very mild sweetness. Appropriate porter mouthfeel. Good stuff.
