Brewed by:
Smuttynose Brewing Company
New Hampshire, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

A very good beer. Very dark in color. Has a slight kick to it, that I like. My first Smuttynose beer of a variety pack of 4 that I got from Jungle Jim's in Ohio, since it isn't available where I live. Has a slight coffee taste, but not too overpowering. Almost like a stout. Definitely worth trying for anyone who likes Porters.
