Style: America Porter
ABV: 5.7%

Serving Style: Bottle

Sight: Dark brown opaque body with a two-inch mahogany head.

Smell: Overpowering smell of burnt malts, rich dark chocolate, and slight caramel.

Flavor: Distinct burnt malt taste. Middle note is rich dark chocolate. Very slight astringent taste at the end.

Feel: Medium-to-thick body with lively carbonation.

Concluding Remarks: Living up to its name, Smutty’s Robust Porter is just that, robust. It is one of the thicker and richer Porters I’ve had this month. Drinking even just a few sips of this charred, roasted malty goodness reminds me of sitting next to a smoky campfire. If you need a little warmth this winter, or miss the days of camps past, I recommend seeking comfort and nostalgia in this Porter.
