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.

Black. Very thin oily tan head. Chocolate bomb. Semi-sweet. Lasting cocoa. Rich and almost chewy, in a great way. Delicious, and makes me want a bowl of ice cream. Thx johnnnniee!

355 ml bottle bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Pours out black and oily. Nearly no head. Choco and leather on the nose. Strong start with toffee, malt and hop in the second row. Some bitterness. Hints of citrus. Long aftertaste. Really nice one.

From 355 ml bottle. In the glass it’s a solid black with just a hint of brown highlight at the edge and a thick lasting tan head. I get aromas of chocolate, cherries, raisins, coffee nibs, walnuts and toffee. In the mouth, the first thing is a burst of fresh cherry, stewed fruit and dark chocolate. A strong coffee bitterness with a smoky overtone kicks in. There’s also a sharp fruity note similar to something from a good espresso. That leads to a chocolate and coffee finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Phenomenal.

Light Brown head that stays there for a while, black body. Bitter chocolate taste which is deeper than expected from a beer with this alcohol level.

12 oz. bottle picked up locally. Strange that I haven’t rated this yet (well, not really, just got caught in the backlog). Pours a dark brown color with a large frothy khaki head that diminishes into a thin layer with sporadic lacing. The aroma has roasted malts, some coffee, nice dark chocolate, and earth. The flavor is much of the same; roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, earth, and a subtle nutty character. Pretty much your basic robust porter, but well done, light medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.
