COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drakes Black Robusto Porter is a deep, dark Robust Porter, a beer style known for being darker, fuller-bodied, and higher in alcohol by volume than a standard Brown Porter. Our Black Robusto goes down smoothly with flavors of bittersweet chocolate an slight roast from Crystal and Chocolate malt. A touch of spicy, herbal hop character from Willamette hops balance out the finish. Enjoy a pint with dark, lingering satisfaction.

Pour is a deep still black, tiny little head with tiny little lacing. Smell is nutty, chocolate, black coffee. Taste follows. Bitter coffee and sweet dark chocolate battle it out with chocolate eventually winning and leaving a sweetened palate

Pitch black, beautiful brownish head, bubbly. Smell is tiramisu - sweet coffee with cinnamon, caramel, biscuit, subtle and warm bitterness. Liquorice and chocolate. Taste is watery bitter, with subtle ash and nice fizz. Chocolate sticky oiliness with a bitter chewy finish. Leaves a fresh herby feel on the tongue. Beautiful balance - delicious!

Big stout masquerading as a porter with gobs of bittersweet chocolate and mocha coffee. Overall, a bruiser of a porter that could use a little more tight structure.
