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.

Bottle. Black in color with a brown head. A hearty aroma of toasted malts and chocolate. This beer has a nice body, feels rich and leaves a long aftertaste of malts and chocolate.

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)

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.

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.

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 (366) - 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 (788) - 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!
