Medium brown color. Aromas and flavors of baking chocolate, roasted root vegetables, and grilled kale with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, breezy finish revealing touches of nutskins, pepper, espresso, and citrus rind finish. A rich, dry, lightly peppery porter for the table.

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.
