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.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Black pour with thick, creamy, tan head. Strong aroma of coffee, chocolate, and burnt malt. Good lacing. Thick mouthfeel. Flavor is same as aroma. Classic stout porter. Very satisfying.

kaserov (291) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2016
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación imperceptible. Aroma meloso, dulce, algo licoroso, con notas de café. Sabor complejo, con prácticamente todo lo anterior, final medianamente amargo. Incluso en los primeros tragos me pareció percibir algo mínimamente ácido en boca. Extraña y rica.

Turboninja (588) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (4092) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
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

Cunningham (7228) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2016
A really nice, tasty and easy drinkable brew. Dangerously session able.
Black color with a fine dense beige head. Good lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a soft smooth carbonation. A nice mellow sweetness. Mild coffee, chocolate, toffee, bready and mild roast.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

theprof (606) - 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 (1988) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
Casi opaca, casi negra, de espuma beige, no muy abundante pero consistente. Marcado aroma tostado, a café y en menor medida chocolate. Rica en boca, compleja, ahumada al inicio, más dulce después, muy ligero toque ácido, y gran sabor con predominio ahora de chocolate y en menor medida café. Gran cuerpo, perfecta de gas y un final de amargor intenso que ensalza todo lo anterior. Gran Porter, que además es altamente bebible.

GoddamnNoise (73) - 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 it’s hazy or clear, but seeing it when poured, i guess it’s 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.

Bottle from the LCBO. Dark mahogany with a small tight khaki head that fades quickly to a sheet.Nose is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of smoke. Light+ sweet toffee start leads to a moderate dark chocolate and coffee bitterness. Mouth is medium and creamy with slightly soft carbonation and a lingering dry finish. Well put together and balanced porter. 8+/4-/8-/4+/16
