Appearance: Pitch black with tan suds and a slight line of lace.

Aroma: Coffee, mocha, cocoa. Pretty spot-on to style and quite appealing.

Taste: Rich and hearty, smooth like a milk stout and flavored well with charry malts, burnt chocolate, coffee, and bittersweet cocoa. A solid and enjoyable stout for sure.

Pours wonderfully thick for a porter. Really is a blackish tone of a body. Head is a thick creamy inch and a half of biscuity brown head. Head has nice retention and leaves solid waves of lace as it fades. Nose is just what the name suggests, robust. Rich and grainy with a nice amount of coffee and toasted dark malts in the aroma. With first sip I am a bit let down by how the robustness that was promised by the nose doesn't transpire completely into the flavor. It is not bad at all, but it is not as big as I was expecting. Dry and crisp for a porter. Shortly roasted malts paint the tongue with coco and even background hops. As I drink I tend to appreciate this beer more. This is a solid porter overall. I have been nothing but impressed with this brewery overall.

Can to snifter solid black pour, off color head and decent lacing.

Aroma roasty coffee, some chocolate, maybe a bit of dark fruit

Taste has chocolate, robust coffee. Slightly sweet but good balance of bitterness

Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, medium carb

Overall a very solid Porter. next time I'm passing thru Indiana I wouldn't mind picking up some more of this
