COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional black porter, with a surprise twist - it's dry-hopped!! We've expanded the porter category a bit, adding a delightful, dry hop aroma to blend with the sweet caramel and chocolate characteristics of a Robust Porter.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2004
Deep reddish brown colour. Berry fruit and burnt malt in the aroma. Roast malt again in the flavour, with chocolate hints. There’s some hop presence and a sour edge on the finish. Rather nice. Bottled, at the Brickskeller, with BuckNaked and Argo0.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
Dark brown color. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor is based on caramel, with a hint of roasted malt and liquorice and coffee. A bit dry and not mature.

mcberko (18930) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of dry hops, roasted malt and molasses. Surprisingly complex flavour of prominent hops (much more so for a porter), roasted malt, sweet caramel, molasses and coffee. Very good.

3.9
rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2007
Dark amber color, offwhite/brownish head. Chocolate aroma, hops, mint notes, some caramel and toffee. Chocolate flavor, hoppy bitterness, cocoa, roasted and with some smoked notes. Licorice finish with some hops and viol.

Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark burgundy colour. Robust aroma is hoppy, with chocolate and toast. I spend a lot of time sniffing this with my pen on the table, just because I wanted to enjoy it rather than analyze it. Toasty, nutty, complex porter with solid bitterness. Delicious.

3.4
TBone (18212) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown color, small tan head. Crisp, a bit citric nose. Roasted, cold coffee flavor, medium-bodied. Quite tasty coffeish porter. Not too thin as it has some body to back up.

jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Very nice dryish porter. Black pour. Nose and taste is smooth chocolate, malt, cereal and dough. Rated 4/9/03

3.6
yngwie (17233) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle at Københavnske Øldage. Dark brown, clear-looking beer with a small, tan head. Sweet, chocolatey nose with some coffee and fruits. Sweet and chocolatey flavor as well, a little roasted, and lightly fruity. Mellow, silky mouthfeel. Very nice balanced and quaffable beer, but I would prefer it a bit heavier and bigger. (070512)

3.5
FatPhil (17062) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2008
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Very dark, red glints, almost black; brief beige head. Very milky malty aroma. Anna says it’s just like a malted milk drink she had as a kid. Thick sticky mouthfeel - full of burnt starches - tons of heavily roasted malt, feels like it leaves dust on my tongue.
