A little ’flat’ tasting. Not in terms of fizz, but in terms of flavour. Hint of coffee taste, but not huge amount. Not too bad.(K) DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016
650ml bottle shared at home. Hazy dark brown with a medium beige head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Good bitterness with subtle sweet tones. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, brown sugar and spices. Nice porter. PugUglyBrewer (791) - - AUG 26, 2016
The only reason that holds me back from classifying this as the best porter I have had is because Founders makes the best porter. Period. Black Robusto measures up very closely. 22oz bottle poured into a large wine glass. The head is dense and creamy with a light brown/dark tan color. The look is solid black. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, chocolate and some floral notes. The flavor is semi sweet cocoa and velvety caramel malt. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2016
22. Pours an opaque matte black with a dense and creamy tan head that lasts. Nice roasty approachable nose; some coffee showing, some black bread crusts in the background. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Roasty, bread crusty, coffeeish mid palate with a mild roasty finish. Nice porter, worth repeats. gkeh (486) - Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Very dark brown pour, dark tan head. Just lovely looking. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee tones. Creamy mouth feel with a nice blend of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Very, very nice.

A fine offering from Drakes Bought at the brewery
Bottled 3/23. It is about a month old ...poured in a snifter
Tan head over black body greets me
Aroma is coffee, mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy akin to a Three Musketeers
bar. Balanced roasted malts meet coffee linger on the palate.
A good experience. Nothing lacking or compromised. ffbot (442) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
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 Bosskie (928) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2016
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! DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2016
