Dusty bronze color. Roasted aromas and flavors of roasted pecan, figs, hint of rubber eraser and clay, and mint with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a medium-length finish that shows notes of chocolate banana muffin and praline finish. A bright fruity porter with a sweet chocolatey malt core.

Robust porters range from brown to dark brown in color and are often stronger in alcohol than standard porters, ranging from 5-7%. These beers often feature rich roasted flavors and strong American or English hop characteristics depending on the interpretation of the style. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Bell’s Porter and Moylan’s Chelsea Porter.
