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.

BeerandBlues2 (12474) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours black with a large, creamy, brown head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, toffee, nutty), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (leather, broth) with notes of dates, plums, and charcoal. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head. The aroma is very hoppy with caramel and chocolate. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a roasted malt with cinammon and a spicy dry finish. A good porter from Avery.

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2007
Bottle. 33 cl. Pours almost black with only slight red edges. Small off white head that stays. Aroma is quite hoppy on a base of roasted and chocolate maltyness. Dry at first, then you feel quite a lot of baby bubbles. The dryness comtinues, gaining more flowery bitterness, chocolate and a touch of roasted.

Dogbrick (12236) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Not as good as Fullers but still a great Porter. Pours a very dark brown/black with a thick light brown head. Thin, spidery lacing throughout. The aroma is roasty with hops and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a nice blend of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee flavors. The finish is roasty and lightly hopped and lasting. I liked this one.
