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.

Roasted malt, turning quickly hoppy. I should stop reviewing beers when I’m sick, ’cause I really can’t taste much else. Maybe some hints of grapefruit. Actually thought it was a black IPA on first drink. Think it seems to be more of a slightly malty IPA than a slightly hoppy porter. Good, nonetheless.

(draft) A fairly mild porter that smelled and tasted of baker’s chocolate. No bitterness or coffee taste that I could detect, and I think that’s a good thing.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, thin reddish highlights, and a lackluster light brown head. Some lace. Very pleasant aroma, light sourness, lingering spicy notes, creamy richness, with cookie dough, strong coffee and alcohol bite to the nose, and bitter chocolate bar. Flavor imparts a very inviting mildly sweet & creamy chocolate base, back by a mild woody and spicy hop finish. Just wonderful. Medium body, very adequate for this beer. Very impressed. "Seashell in a sea of shells.”

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours muddy black with a avg rocky brown head. Aroma is heavily malty, dark bread, roasted malts, strong coffee, lightly hopped, and moderatly yeasty, broth or meat. Flavor is well balanced nutty and roasted malts, finish much the same, with an average finish. Medium bodied watery and creamy, softly carbonated.

3.5
hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours very dark brown, half finger tan head, nice lacing. Aroma bready malt, toffee, chocolate, earthy piney hops. Taste slightly bitter pine, bittersweet chocolate, coffee grinds, bready and roast malt faint citrus on finish. Mouthfeel medium-full body, lower carbonation, balanced finish. Overall tasty, complex, slightly on the bitter side, close to black ipa, but not quite.

3.5
BigSound (196) - New York, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours very dark brown with a khaki head, good lacing. The aroma is coffee, and dark malt, just a bit of smoke. More smoke in the flavor, followed by coffee bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation.

One of the best robust porters around. Nicely hoppy, as are all Avery beers, but a great malt character, with chocolate and coffee flavors. I love porters and love hops, so this is right up my alley.

This black IPA has toasted malts, balanced chocolate flavors and an interesting hop profile too
