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.

"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."

Tap @ brewery. Pours a dark orange/brown body with a creamy tan/brown head. Piney bitterness in the nose along with some dark malts. Flavor has a piney bitterness element followed a fairly robust chocolate malty body. A good hoppiness and dark malty flavor on the finish.

Bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown body with a big brown and creamy head. Dark Chocolate malts in the nose that are dominated by an intense piney hopiness. Flavor begins with a piney hoppiness followed by the typical characteristics of a porters- creamy, smooth, dark malty body. Very interesting version thats quite unique.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Its a very dark brown porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is very nice with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavour also has notes of chocolate with hints of licorice, coffee and a bit of dark fruits. IMO its a really nice one.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours deep brown/ruby with a big, cream, tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and chocoff. Tastes malty, with big chocoff, fruit, and a roasty, somewhat rauchy finish. Medium in palate and fairly dense and bold. To me, this is an awesome porter...certainly a repeat buy, and a top 25er.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. A deep, black ruby pour yields no head of significance and no lace. Pepper and spice in the nose along with molasses. Taste is olive, cardboard, pepper, chalk. Iron and heavy metals come through. Dominant character is cardboard. I have here in my notes: "Tastes like Wal-Mart receipts soaked in cigarette water." Typical Avery mess.

Had this at the Orsted cafe/bar, Kobenhaven 13-09-08 Don’t recall who shared this one, probably Ian (Harrisoni) but thanks to whoever. Poured dark, dark brown with nice chocolate and hops. This is smooth enjoyable and moreish, notes are getting less and less as the evening wears on.
