    Robust Porter is back!

    Our Robust Porter is chocolaty with hints of coffee and caramel. It's an opaque black, and designed to keep you warm on cold winter nights. The beer finishes slightly sweet but doesn't sit heavy on the palate with hoppy or roasty bitterness. Hops are Northern Brewer, but this beer is all about the malts. About 20% of this beer is made up of dark malts (Chocolate Malt, Black Patent Malt). Chocolate malt brings flavours of coffee and dark chocolate, as well as an understated dark fruit flavour. Black Patent malt contributes to the inky blackness of the robust porter without any of the roasty bitterness of roast barley. Pairs well with BBQ and sweet desserts.
