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.
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.

Fatehunter (2613) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Poured out of a bottle into a tulip glass. Very dark, though when held to the light there is a slight reddish hue. A short head that quickly retreated to the edge of the glass. Before even breathing in I can smell it. Amazing dark malt and coffee, but the coffee is more of a burnt smell and there is a little cocoa. Taste: Roasted malt, bitter, and the taste of chewing on a coffee bean. The bitterness clings to the back of my mouth for awhile afterward. These are all good characteristics. The taste matches its appearance. Light for a porter, but very pleasant. A bit of creaminess to it. I usually expect a little more body to a porter though. Very good. My first Smuttynose and based off this great beer I’ll be trying to find some more.

12 ounce bottle. Translucent cola brown color. Dense, creamy tan head. Rich, cocoa malt nose. Soft, silky roasted malt flavor. Rich, flavorful chocolate malt notes. Slightly bitter resiny hops. Absolutely delicious with a smooth easy drinking palate. One of the best American Porters I've tasted.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2017 12oz bottle. Thick dark brown with a good tan head. Chocolate and coffee aromas, flavour is very much the same with some vanilla and leather thrown in. Thick, oily mouth feel. Very good

12floz bottle (BBD: 08.16.2017, $1.50) poured into a mug glass. It appears a very dark brown with a glistening light brown head. Baker’s chocolate and molasses aromas are not strong, but noted. This beer is robust, yet not overbearing. Flavors consist of roasted and crystal/caramel malts that convey moderate amounts of dark chocolate and praline. I’ll use the overused term solid to summarize the quality of this porter.

googleimage83 (170) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Very dark, not particularly heady but rich looking. Buttery, desserty aroma; milk chocolate, vanilla notes. Taste of brown sugar, quality milk chocolate, oat, toasted hops. Extremely smooth, milky quality. Excellent.

4.8
Zgpt (51) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Dark with brown medium head if poured fairly fast. Nice rich nutty flavor, sharp with smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
