355 ml bottle, as Southern Tier Porter Dark, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Black colour, huge beige head. Lovely vinous and fruity aroma, notes of American hops and orange marmalade. The roasty notes are very subdued. The flavour is very moderately roasty, notes of chocolate and moderate American hops, not very sweet. Decent beer.

Pours a dark brown producing a small short-lived, tan head that leaves behind no lace as it recedes. Aroma is toast and roasted malt, unsweetened cocoa. Taste is malty chocolate, toffee, roasted nuts with a hint of floral. A little smoke in the bitter finish.

They got the color right. It pours dark but with minimal head.
Hint of roast in the nose.
Minimal flavor with a touch of roasted malts.
Thin watery mouthfeel.
Most dissapointing
Maybe I got a bad bottle. The other reviewers seem to like it.

Enjoying on tap at Gingerman NYC. Is this a different iteration of Southern Tier Porter. This one is called Robust Porter and is at 5.8% ABV.
Pours a deep dark brown, almost black color, with a moderate tan head that retains well. Creamy film and frothy lacing ornaments the surface and side of the glass.
Nice cocoa and mild coffee and roasted malt aroma. The malt also imparts a nutty quality.
Smooth and creamy, medium bodied and light fit the style. Sweet and cocoa like at first. The taste becomes slightly more bitter as I drink along. Mildly bitter espresso roast and a hoppy finish.
Solid and straightforward and easy to drink porter.

Poured into a custom shaped grip glass: color is dark brown, head is light tan, fine bubbles, minor lacing.

Smell is light sweet chocolate, roast, hint of hop bitterness. Simple but full aroma.

Taste is similar with a more balance of sweet/roast to the sweet side with strong to moderate chocolate, bitter hop flavors are earthy and light grass.

Mouthfeel is on the sweeter side, not cloying just moderate sweetness with moderate carbonation.

Overall a good, moderately sweet porter.
