A robust Porter, Drake’s Black Robusto has a roasty character and is stronger in alcohol than a regular porter (thus “robust’). Dark black in color with chocolate maltiness from seven different types of barley and spicy herbal hop character from Northdown and Williamette hops.

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

On tap at Tony’s Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a 1/2 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A thick curtain of lace clings to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt and some subtle coffee and cocoa notes. Taste is of dark roasted malt, burnt coffee, and cocoa beans. There is a somewhat assertive roasty bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is good porter but it’s roasty as hell.
