A hearty ebony colored ale that starts with a rich malty palate finished with clean hops and notes of coffee and chocolate.

Interesting bottle. A good porter. Nice a smooth, sweet, chocolate, malts, caramel. Not too roasted. Rich but I didn’t detect too much coffee.

From a bottle with dessert at Rezaz, Biltmore Village. Delicious. One of the best porters out there. Cold glass it was poured into was unfortunate, but beer shone above that. Dark, opaque pour with tan head. Decent lacing. Dark beer deliciousness all present and accounted for- coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, nuttiness, earthy and a hint of smoke. Robust is accurate- nice smooth, full mouthfeel and weight. Great balance- hops at the end keep the sweetness in check. Brewing like they mean it up in NH. Delicious.

33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is nice roasted malt and espresso, light caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium roasty and bitter, with notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, earth. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very nice

dhatton (127) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Deep brown, almost black, body with dark tan head. Caramel nose with a metallic copper aspect and pleasant roasted malts. Big coffee flavor; very earthy and nutty. Some subtle floral hoppy notes progressively developed. Smooth tasty porter.

DerWeg (1546) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
This is a nice full porter without edging into sugary sweet malt, keeps a good balance and has a perfect hop counterpoint. Brown pour with (as I said) rich detailed and hoppy-bready aroma. Taste is full and complex with a good palate. I’m getting the toffee and hints of demerera-molasses flavors, some dark fruit, mild coffee and chocolate but not too roasty, not really a sour componenent but the dryness is enough, herbal hops tucked in there, really tasty. Worth stocking up on a few.

tekstr1der (105) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Roasted malt nose, dark opaque black with brown head. Strong malt up front with lingering coffe and some hops to finish. Delightful stuff.

Listigovers (420) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Thick and rich roasted malt aroma, black with a thick dense brown head. Medium to full bodied, very creamy, big flavour, lots of roasted malt, a prickle of hop, long aftertaste. Nice.

So geht Porter. Kakao en masse, Bitterschokolade, dunkle früchte. Kaffeebitterkeit im Geschmack, Schokolade, Cremigkeit, recht stark karbonisiert.

Roasted malts evident in aroma, with hops, rich and smooth flavor. The bitterness is spot on for an American Robust Porter.
