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.

Turboninja (685) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2016
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Quite superb taste for this percentage. Beside organic roasted malts, some tar and licorice can be detected. Averagely balanced with low/medium carbonation. Balanced, high quality product.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Ciemna brazowa gesta barwa nieprzezroczysta. Ciemno zotka barwa sredniej pianki szybko opadajacej. Zapach silnie owocowo truflowy. W smaku na samym pczatku bardzo slodko, ale na szczescie smak przechodzi w palonosc i silna goryczke. Ciekawe i zlozone piwo w warstwie smakowej. Dlugi ciagnacy sie lepko-gozki finisz. plus za stylowa etykiete, a minus za brak info o zawartosci alkoholu

theprof (713) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with thin tan top, minimum lacing. Surprisingly little in the way of scent, grassy perhaps, despite the peat black colour. But the taste is excellent and has a crispness and lightness on the palate that may convert some who are not generally drawn to the dark side.

jamaty (2042) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
Casi opaca, casi negra, de espuma beige, no muy abundante pero consistente. Marcado aroma tostado, a caf y en menor medida chocolate. Rica en boca, compleja, ahumada al inicio, ms dulce despus, muy ligero toque cido, y gran sabor con predominio ahora de chocolate y en menor medida caf. Gran cuerpo, perfecta de gas y un final de amargor intenso que ensalza todo lo anterior. Gran Porter, que adems es altamente bebible.

GoddamnNoise (92) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - SEP 25, 2016
33 cl. Bottle @ Home. Aroma: quite intense aromas of coffee, dark roasted and toasted malts, dark chocolate. Hints of alcohol but only after pouring. Very light hint of vanilla. Appearance: very deep brown color, almost black. Too dark to tell if its hazy or clear, but seeing it when poured, i guess its pretty clear. Above average head thickness. Light brown head color with medium-to-high retention and some Brussels lacing. Taste: light-to-medium sweetness, medium bitterness, very light sourness. Palate: medium-to-full body, oily-to-creamy texture, low-to-flat carbonation, good silky mouthfeel. Quite long dry finish with tones of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Overall: very good appearance and aromas. Excellent flavors of roasted and toasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Very good beer.

Swaroga (2165) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 18, 2016
33cl bottle. Black with medium head. Aroma is freshly brewed coffee beans, concentrated dry milk, toffee, black chocolate. All very intensive. Creamy and fluffy mouth feel. THe beer is well balanced with dominating flavour of black chocolate. Sweet on the beginning but it gets more and more bitter/earthy and roasted. Finish is earthy like cocoa beans. Nice stuff.

Smuttynose Robust Porter hits it right on the mark. Dark brown pour with a tight tan head. Aroma is chocolate. Taste is malty with some roasty and chocolate notes. Robust nails the style solid.
