COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drake’s 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.

Rich coffee and chocolate aroma along with some roasted malt notes. Pours a rich, deep black with a dark tan one and a half finger head. Tastes of strong roasted malt flavor. Chocolate and coffee dominate the flavor. Medium to full body with a slightly creamy texture. Low carbonation and a chocolaty finish. Overall a very good robust porter.

Porter przywieziony prosto z USA. Bardzo ładny, ciemnobrązowy kolor i całkiem spora, beżowa, równa piana. Aromat palonych słodów i czekolady. W smaku pełne, treściwe. Sporo czekolady, pralinek i trochę kawy. Bardzo gładkie, aksamitne. Smaczne piwo!

Andrew196 (1921) - Katy, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Pours black with a cappuccino colored head, very stable. Aroma is caramel, earth, tea, nuttiness. Not as much of a pop to it as I wanted... Nuts and coffee, a slight bittersweetness. Decent but nothing special here.

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown/dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a great beer and even more so for its abv. Starts rather sweet and ends with mellow, but still distinct, coffee. Simply love these flavours.

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)
