Ok first off, I was drawn to this beer because of the name and the design of the can. All I can say about this porter is it's really tasty, nice finger width of head that sticks around for awhile. Its robust as the can claims. Really good beer, not as awesome as the can, but would and hopefully will drink it again. Cheers!

Pours seal brown with ruby highlights and a good inch of khaki foam if you so desire. Mild aroma smells of roasted coffee, caramel, nuts, and grassy hops.

The taste follows the aroma fairly closely--astringent burnt roast takes the lead, accompanied by an only slightly less pronounced dose of grassy hops. Nuttier aspects emerge more on the back end, along with traces of caramel. The medium body is spot on, however the carbonation is a tad high, creating a mildly distracting prickliness. With that said, it does manage to be incredibly drinkable, as I polished off my can much more quickly than usual.

If you like your beer heavy on roasted malt and easy to drink, this should be quite satisfying. The bitterness is a little higher than I prefer, but I can’t deny that it works in context. It reminds me a bit of Finch’s Secret Stache, but with less chocolate and more char. Worth having more than once.

Price paid : $2.39

Pours chocolate brown with a mocha-beige head of 2 fingers. Body is 100% opaque, lacing is hilly.

It smells of chocolate, cocoa powder, roast malt, and coffee bean. Medium strength.

Bites of pine and citrus to start, with roasted coffee grounds following behind. Ends on smoke and roasted malts. Belches are pure citrus rind.

It feels appropriate for the style, though on the lighter side for a porter. The carbonation works well here, and it has a pleasurable semi-dry parch.

Overall it's not a bad porter, but the citrus/pine in my sample was a bit too loud. I have had some cans that tasted better than others though. For $3 a can, I'd say go for it if you are curious. The can art is great!
