Robust Porter is an American Porter brewed by Smuttynose Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a mug from a bottle.


The ale pours a mahogany hue and is topped by an inch-thick, mocha-colored head that offers modest retention. A lovely lattice of sticky lacing clings to the glass during reduction.


The aroma has a welcoming scent of dark malts and coffee.

The palate opens with a mild taste of floral hops that gives way to coffee grounds, roast malt, dark chocolate, and caramel.


The porter has a smooth feel with a slightly heavier than medium body and low carbonation for easy drinking.
