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.

Bottle. Sweet, hoppy effervescent aroma. Well above average carbonation. Medium dark brown color. Delightful, well balanced beer. Slightly sweet, smooth predominantly hoppy flavor, with hints of chocolate and coffee. A refreshing respite from the current trend of mega-ABV porters and imperial ales that are simply too boozy to be imbibed as conventional beers. One of my new faves!

Sirmixsomewhat (167) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Good flavor, but really strong. A little too strong. Okay, it’s about as strong as the guy in the unitard on the label: like it’s been working out for years and taking selfies at the gym.
