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.

crossovert (11818) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2014
355ml bottle. The description up here is humorous. Dark pour, crea smell is nice, almost strictly burnt roasted malts with a nice caramel, coffee, cocoa, and hop backing. The flavor is nice, lots of peat and cocoa, coffee, hints of melon which is strange but nto upsetting, sharp and dry, nicely robust. Decent porter.

madsberg (11613) - Sborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2006
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Dense light brown head. Sweetish, chocolatish, light roasted, spiced and herbal aroma. Quite delicious. Flavour is smooth. Loads of chocolate and a mild roastiness in the flavour. Fruits is there, herbs are there and some vague spicenotes. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry mouthfeel. Balanced. Ends on a light roasty bitterness with some choconotes. Good one and just what I needed today after a long day at work.

Nice head and lace. Chocolate and hops in aroma, hoppy porter. I think less hops would be better, this would be interesting if on tap.

rosenbergh (11042) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2010
355 ml bottle. Brought from Sweden. Courtesy of Brandman.
Reddish dark brown almost black colour with big fluffy sand head. Aroma is bitter hops, chocolate, some sweetness, roasted malt and dark fruits. Delightful combination of hoppy bitterness and Porter roastiness. Flavour is more straight forward with strong roasted malt flavour with coffee, liquorice, salty liquorice, dry bitter grassy hops and ash. Theres no sweetness nor chocolate in flavour. Rich and full.

Bottle. Chocolate fudge malt and light orange peel aroma. Black-brown with small head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Interesting - pretty hoppy.

daknole (10920) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
A unique porter. Dark, dark brown, but light does pass through it. A nice tan head that lasts for a bit. Aroma is hops and more hops. Flavor is hoppy and a tad bitter. Strong coffee flavors are present as well...if you like dark beers and hops then this is the beer for you.

"hopped as heavily as some imperial porters, without the big body or heavy roasted flavors and abv. the body is a little thin, but smooth. the aroma and taste with the malt and dry hopped balance really works, especially as it warms. if it had more body, itd be among my favorite porters."
