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.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, with a strong tan head. Malty, nutty aroma. Coffee, nuts, and a bit of chocolate are the main notes in the malty flavor profile - not much in the way of hops. A bit of a soapy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. A decent enough porter, but not really deserving of its high rating, in my opinion.

Great tasting porter! Solid beer that delivers on all fronts. This is what a porter should taste like! Very smooth beer full of coffee and chocolate aromas.

mabuzzer (896) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2017
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.

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

NikkTwist (3303) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2017
UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Draft at Fado. Clear but nearly opaque dark brown garnet pour with off-white foam. Nice lace. Sweet dark roasty malts. Solid coffee notes. Cocoa nibs. Burnt nuts. Hints of dark berries. Full-bodied for a Porter. Enough hop bite for balance. Surprisingly well done.

3.9
Vinx (133) - ITALY - MAR 28, 2017
Deep aroma of chocolate, coffee, red fruit, toffee, caramel, nuts, astringency by roasted malts and a kind of dust/metal hint due to the oxydation (I’m talking about a 6.6% ABV bottle expired on december 2015). Clear dark brown color, long lasting tan head. Medium-high bitterness. Medium body, thin feel, soft carbonation, astringent and bitter finish. It’s really a good one but I’d suggest not to keep it in the cellar too long.

4.5
LaPelos (37) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017
Botella de 33cl. Aromas a malta y chocolate. Cuerpo medio/alto, muy suave al paladar. Chocolate, café, Final seco y persistente. Un pedazo de cerveza. Para repetir
