4.23/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours brown-black, with a thin but vigorous brown-orange head. The darkest of browns, even when held up to light. Looks dense and appetising.

S: Dry malts, coffee beans and chocolate.

T: Quite possibly the best porter I've ever tasted. Substantial, chocolatey, with a bit of hoppy bitterness. People sometimes say that Guinness tastes like chocolate milk, but this Robust Porter puts the Irish stuff to shame. The aftertaste is creamy, sweet, and just a bit drying, as though from dark chocolate or black coffee.

M: Creamy, filling, immense, velvet, delicious.

D: Truly a wonderful beer. The alcohol content is much higher than I expected from the flavour. Robust, indeed. Porters don't get much better than this, and I will definitely be buying more. Recommended!
