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.

DuffMan (9741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nut-brown with amber highlights and a foamy tan head that reduces to chunky flotsam. Aromas of chocolate, beef broth, clay. Dominant flavour is chocolate, with nuances of coffee, aniseed, breadcrust, pine. Has a hearty briney character. Finish is resinous and bitter. Loved it.

phaleslu (9705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a very dark brown color with a half-inch thick tan head that sticks around. Aroma of roasted malts, smoked wood, chocolate, caramel, earthy hops, and brown sugar. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, smoked wood, earthy hops, caramel, and toast. Bitter and earthy for the style, with nice sweetness to balance and a dry finish. Medium-bodied, smooth, and robust. Very nice porter.

alexsdad06 (9672) - Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is mild to moderate roasted malt, chocolate, and some citrus hop notes. The flavor is mildly roasted malts, chocolate, and some citrus notes. The finish has some bitterness to it and highlights the dry hopping. I think it is an interesting idea, but doesnt completely work for me and what I like in a porter.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2012
12oz bottle. Black color with a red hue, thin light brown head, good lace. Slightly translucent. Light and crisp/smooth carbonation. Hoppy and malty aroma, some chocolate. Satisfying amount of hops, definitely a black IPA (and a pretty good one, too). Mostly bitter. Some sweet taste, a bit of spice. Tasty enough to be called drinkable

pours ruby/black, thin golden/off white head Aroma is malty and chocolate, light scent of dark fruits and sweet, light notes of hops. Taste, light roasted malts, some coffee / toffee. Light addition of hops that adds for an original mouthfeel coupled with some dark fruits. Finish has a thin touch of caramel that ends smooth with bits of cocoa powder and hops..

marcus (9537) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a hearty treacle and chocolate aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and molasses, and is imbued with that unclassifiable taste characteristic that is common to most Avery brews. The body seems thin at first, but expands as the beer warms.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours dark brown, nose with some hops and a lot of malty sweetness. Tastes up front of slight piny hops and then dives into the chocolate/coffee taste. Slightly unbalanced, but a good attempt and a decent beer!
