Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 10-18-2000

This hearty, mahogany colored ale is brewed to evoke the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London. It is a good bet that when Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, we would have been drinking an ale much like our Robust Porter.This is a smooth and very drinkable beer, characterized by its well-balanced malt and hops, plus subtle notes of coffee and chocolate.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours pitch black with a thin cream-colored head. Dissipates to a light cap and lacing.

S - Heavy dark chocolate and coffee aromas, nicely defined. Wood scents move in and out as well. Light malts in the background.

T - Bold chocolate and roasted coffee flavors. Mild bitterness on the end, adds a nice bite.

M - Heavy body, light carbonation. Silky smooth as well. Perfect for the style.

O - A very smooth, well flavored beer. I really love the smell on this one as well. Great to enjoy one after dinner to relax after a hard day. I recommend to anyone who enjoys the heavy, dark beers.
