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.

a bottle from RichlikeBeer. dark brown with a quickly fading tan head. a medium bodied porter with a bittersweet chocolate flavor. on the finish, the hops are mild and there is a hint of a coffee flavor. there seems to be an underlying acidic taste that just doesnt sit right on my palate. not bad by any means, just not right for me.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This beer poured a beautiful ebony in the glass and you did not have to put your nose to the glass to smell the roasted coffeee and dark cocoa. A small, but thick tan head, that quickly dissapates to a dirty ring that clings to the glass all the way down. The beer has a medium texture with a taste transition from sweet to hoppy and bitter. Somewhat syrupy on the palate, with a hoppy bitter finish. One great Porter and triumph from Smuttynose.

Dark brown body with a dense light brown head. Very nice aroma with roasted malts, coffee notes and a nice sweet touch. Roasted malty flavor, but really not that complex.
