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! rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - FEB 24, 2017
From tap at Drake’s Dealership, Oakland. Black color with beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate and coffee. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation. Andrew196 (1903) - 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.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown/dark brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.
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.
Tap at GABF. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast coffee, chocolate, earth hop. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, nice bitter roast finish, good. batneil (719) - - OCT 29, 2016
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 (3513) - 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 (667) - - 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.
