Our most award-winning beer, Robust Porter honors the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London, where the style originated.
It’s a good bet that when Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, his beer would have been very similar to our Robust Porter. This smooth, deceptively drinkable beer features an assertive hop profile which accentuates signature flavors of coffee and dark chocolate.

via trade with Ty5592 - Pours a black color with a good size tan head. Lots of nice lacing as the head settles. Has a sweet chocolate, coffee aroma. Flavor is also chocolate and coffee. The bitterness really comes through. Has a thin palate, otherwise this beer would make a nice Imp stout. Leaves a roasted aftertaste. Thin to medium body. A very good beer. Thanks TY.

Very dark in the glass -- very porter-looking. Generous aromas of chocolate, malt and robust grains. Rich malt and very chocolaty without giving too much away. Medium body is a bit thin for the substantial flavors. Long finish is a nice reminder of the great beer you just sipped! (Didn’t get the alcohol or bitterness of other tasters.)

Unusual mineral taste, high carbonation, light body, mocha, cocoa, dry for porter. High carbonation porters even with a light body are a bit unsettling after even a small meal. Nice for the right moment though. Why is this ranked so high?

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Tall tan head, nice lacing, and a strong roasted coffee aroma. Tastes similar—less potent than a stout and smoother mouthfeel, low bitterness, roasted and malty, almost like coffee, smoky. Pretty decent, couldn’t have many.

i must say, this beer smells better than it tastes. pours black with small tan head that quickly disapeared. light carbonation. very roasted flavor, almost too much so. i think i would have liked this beer better if i enjoyed dark chocolate, because it’s very prominent in the taste. the finish is an unpleasant bitterness with a little alcohol bite.

sort of a promising nose...Riesen candy...coffee, dark chocolate...interesting flavors, bitterness that I can no longer call cocoa at this point and the finish is reminiscent of having chewed a pack of Marlboros

Bottle courtesy of Rudolf: Poured dark brown with runy highlights and a tan head. Coffee and chocolate with a roasted flavor that paired perfectly with a steak on the grill. One of the best of the style.

blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing light-brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, lightly roasted malt and that’s pretty much it -- simple but pleasant. Flavour of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a roasty slighty bitter finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Nothing outstanding but still a pretty good, solid Porter.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 (Bottle, thanks to Thaichile) Pours brown to black with a small, light brown head. Rum raisin aroma with cocoa and coffeebeans. Robust smell. A bit of liquorice. Dark breadsyrup. Flavour brings dry coffee bitterness and cocoa. Dry with a rather small body. A bit roasted. Notes of minerals in the lack of body.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Pours black with a brwon head. Bready, chocolate roasted aroma. Lots of roasted malt in the flavor. Some bitterness from the hops in the backend but not much flavor from them. A solid porter.
