Our take on an American robust porter. Dark, thick, chewy, chocolaty, and of course, generously hopped.

A smooth and roasty porter. As easy-going as your oldest friend. A porter to pour if you feel like more than one in an evening.

Pours with little carbonation. A rocky dark tan head that dissipates fairly fast.

The nose is of dark-roasted malt and chocolate.

There is a little more hoppy bitterness than most porters. But it works well with the roasted coffee undertones. A smooth, sipping porter. For sure.

Mouthfeel is a little light, but that may be because I am used to drinking high-end and high-alcohol porters.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark brown bordering on black, like motor oil; thick, solid head, very fine, with crazy retention - mocha coloured

Aroma: bitter coffee/chocolate, very mild

Taste & Mouthfeel: dark chocolate, almond cappuccino, with a hop kick near the end that pairs well with the roasted malt - perfect balance and come in at the right time; all flavours linger in the finish; silken mouthfeel, thick and creamy

Overall: love how balanced this is, with great texture that is a real pleasure to drink - an awesome brew for winter, as it borders on being a stout

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with long lasting, foamy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready, toasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and hint of dried fruit. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and coffee, followed by earthy hops. Finish is long and bittersweet. Excellent, delicious Porter.

BeerAdvocate keeps logging me out when I submit reviews despite pressing the "keep me logged in button" so there is a lot of information that is missed from what I had to say.

A: Black with a dark khaki head, good lacing.

S: Faint pine hop smell and a lot more lemony hop smell. The overall scent is subdued but fresh smelling. Not much else.

T: Fantastic tasting beer. At first it has this light roasted flavor with a bit of woody character. It is followed by a mellow pine flavor. Despite the claim that the term "balanced" is cliche and overused, this beer feels like a perfect balance of malt and hops that has been elevated evenly to create a much fuller more flavorful beer.

M: It's perfect. It has a nice full mouthfeel that is quite simply enjoyable to drink.

O: Overall this beer is fantastic. I am certain that porter, stout, and even barley wine lovers will find this beer to their satisfaction. I will be buying more of this in the future if it is available. I highly recommend that others seek it out.
