COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
Its 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.

Bottle. Dark chocolately color with nice hop nose and bite. Very well balanced beer with good alcohol level often lacking in some porters. Not sure about the label -- a bit too corny for my tastes; seems a beer of this caliber should rate a more stylish label.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2006
Pours dark brown with moderate brown head. Suprisingly hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and backed by chocolate and coffee malts. Flavor is rich and deep: hop bitterness, oatmeal, chocolate, coffee and a touch of toffee sweetness. Medium body with light carbonation. Really nice porter.

Black Coloring with Espresso Head. Robust Coffee and Chocolate Aroma...Already Aptly Named... Light Mouthfeel...Not Thickly Malted...Instead Nice Light Chocolate Notes with Wonderfully Freshly Roasted Coffee Notes Abound in Every Taste...Light Lactose Taste...Dry Aftertaste.. Quite Nice.

Black color with a tall, towering head. Odd to see that on a porter. Strong aroma of chocolate and coffee. The chocolate takes a turn for the dry cocoa in the taste. Solid dry malt base. Barely any bitterness, just dry. Excellent!

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Pours black with a frothy and fading choco colored head. Smells of rich smokey coffee. Taste is very much the same. It is strong but not overdone, just the right amount to get what you want out of it without spoiling the flavor. Goes down smooth and is finished with a soft sweetness. Very good porter!

Bottle. Right good roast coffee bean aroma on thick india ink beer. Modest, fading beige head. Zingy roast malt earthen flavor with nice little hop touch of bite to it. A little chalky. Licorice flavor emerges. Overall quite nice.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Pours black with a thick light brown head. Roasty chocolate, mocha and hops in the nose. Flavor has notes of dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, plant soil, coffee, a solid dose of hops and caramel sweetness. Has a pleasant burnt/bitter aftertaste; a little charcoal. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation - seems on target for a porter. Spider-web lacework on the glass with good head retention. Good stuff.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bottled in January. Poured a slightly hazy, deep garnet with a long-lived creamy caramel head. Nose picked up almost burnt chocolate, coffee, soap, and pine forest notes... hoppage became more pronounced as it warmed. Flavor began with a pine tinge on the the tip of the tongue.. followed by roasted chocolate and coffee. Coffee and pine bitterness surrounded the tongue and carried through the roasty finish. Medium-bodied. Solid porter.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 16, 2006
12oz bottle from Lou18. Pours a dark brown color with a frothy tan head. Nose is smokey, peaty, chocolate, coffee, earthy, roast malt. Big flavor of chocolate in the back of my throat right off the bat. Notes of coffee, roasted malt, semi sweet chocolate. Palate is veryfoamy, lightly fluffy but full. Finishes very sticky and with a thick layer of film on the teeth, gums and tongue.

12 oz. bottle. originally had on tap at Red Bones, but should have gotten as a dessert beer, not an appetizer. Pours a near black, with a great light brown/tan head. good lacing. carbonation light. Aroma is of coffee, roasted and chocolate malts/dry chocolate. Taste is of semi sweet chocolate, roasted malt, slight butter taste, with a long, roasty bitter finish. A great Porter in my opinion.
