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.

2005 Bottle. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with hints of vanilla and oaky bitterness. Smooth beginning with a nice flavors roasted caramel malts and coffee undertones. This slightly sweet smoothness is complimented with a bitter-hoppy finish. Definiterly still tasting vanilla. The base is alittle watery for my liking...would be amazing if it was unfiltered.

Pours jet black with a thin tan head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is sweet roasted caramel malt and black coffee with a nose that is tart and fruity hop that makes you salivate just thinking about the tartness. Plums and honey also come through in the aroma. The flavor is bitterly sweet dark roasted coffee with a hoppiness on the end. The palate is dark and dry with a fizzy and tingling mouthfeel. Some thick lacing.

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Large thick tan head. Very dark brown almost black body. Aroma is a nice roasted malt and some nuts. Hints of good coffee. I love a roasty porter. Taste is a very full bodied toast and coffee. Hints of dark chocolate and even raspberries. This also has a little vanilla. A slick almost creamy mouthfeel. This is very nice. Everything a porter should be.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Poured black with a tan head that left thick lacing on the glass. Fruity malt aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. Taste is bitter roasted chocolate with very little sweetness. I found the bitterness to be somewhat unbalanced and unpleasant, but still a good porter.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Brown frothy head atop a black beer. Does not pass the flashlight test but is definitely darker than the style nazis would like. Huge caramel and chocolate aromas with a small hint of grassy hops. Some figiness too. Very full mouthfeel with a lot of sweet dextrins. A big burnt character with enough malty backbone to balance out the dryness of all the black patent. This is a great porter.

Extremely flavorful porter, with no detectable flaw. Very drinkable; like it better than Anchors, or Sierras, which were my previous choices for bottled porters...
