Beer #19 – Smuttynose Robust Porter

So it was super warm, now it’s cold again and good weather for a porter.  These days are numbered however, which is why I recently bought a bunch of spring-ish beers, including some nice IPAs that I can’t wait to try.  But that’s getting ahead of myself.  I still have a brew from Smuttynose that I need to review, their Robust Porter from the great state of New Hampshire.

Robust Porter, Smuttynose Brewing CompanyNew Hampshire, United States of A
American Porter, 5.7 % ABV

Aroma: Nice and deep dark malt notes, with rich coffee, hint of chocolate.

Appearance: Poured thick brown, nice head of dark tan foam.

Flavor: Nice coffee bitterness, deep roasted malt, great chocolate on the finish with nice balancing hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, nice carbonation, nice coating on the mouth.

Overall: Excellent porter.  Nice roasty notes, with good dark flavors, nice finish on this one.  Good mouthfeel and a present hop bitterness that balances the flavors that come before it.
