Poured out of a 22 ounce bomber. This Robust Porter poured a chocolate brown color. Taste was roasty, malty, and slightly burnt. Medium bodied with a burnt smell. Had this beer in the fridge for a few months; therefore, that might have affected the results. Preferred the taste when I had it on tap.

On nitro tap at BC's Pizza & Beer

A: Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a creamy light brown head that hangs around and leaves some thick lacing.

S: Mild dark fruit, vanilla, roasted malt, milk chocolate, and toffee sweetness.

T: Roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, hint of burnt toast, vanilla, a little fruity, and some toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body,moderate carbonation, creamy smooth.

O: Pretty solid brew made even better with nitro.

Nice middle of the road porter. Would like a bigger roast prescence, but a solid brew.

Chocolatey nose. Seems more bitter/less sweet than the average porter. The cocoa/chocolate is there but I'm not picking up on the vanilla. It's not getting better as it warms up. Like eating a piece of burnt toast. Meh.

Got it in a 22 oz bomber. Poured a nice dark brown color, not much of a head. You hear cocoa vanilla and you think there's going to be a lot of artificial flavoring but there is none. Disappointed that there wasn't more smell to this one. Very mild but what there is is nice. More complex than many of the porters I've had.
