Not robust as described. Had all the requisite parts, but not a big enough beer to be a nitro blend. Probably would have liked just co2, but the blend makes it come across a bit weak.

Pleasant enough, but the flavour is a little weak. It’s very dark, perhaps black, with a thin head. Quite fizzy too.

A very dry porter. Chocolate flavor and aroma with a fairly light body. Roasted malt give a slight burnt finish.

brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Black in color with a creamy khaki head. Coffee, roast, and dark chocolate open things up on the nose. A bit of earthy hops, licorice, and maybe some cocoa powder. The flavor is almost chalky and astringent. Lots of roasted malt, some dark chocolate, and a coffee ground note, too. A hint of dark fruit as the beer warms.

probably one of best and most consitant offerings from Lengthwise. Slight acidity from roast malts but not a detriment, actually blends nice with sub flavors of coffee and caramels... Not sweet, again slightly on the raosty side and maybe moving from a porter to a stout.. Give it a Robust porter for style, My personal guess is the name may help in marketing a dark beer with body to a location where it is rarely less than 95F in the Summer months.

On tap the brewpub. Dark amber-brown, decent dense head. Aroma-roasted malt, hint of chocolate, coffee. Taste-earthy, creamy, roasty, cocoa and coffee notes. Somewhat low carbonation. Very creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear deep dark ruby with a one finger cramy beige head, good retention--as a nitro should have. Loads of unsweetened chocolate up front with some moderate roasted malts. Flavor is much the same with hints of caramel and smoke, though the finish did turn a little burnt and ashy. Bitterness peaked around a 3 in the dry finish. Light prickly carbonation with a medium body. Not too bad.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2008
On nitro tap. Poured a black color with a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor was strong with coffee. Body was too light, but other than that this was a great beer.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2008
Nitro pour. Dark brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Light roasted malt flavor, mild sweetness, with an earthy bitterness. Seemed a little thin, but the body was creamy from the nitro. Pretty okay.
