Drake’s Black Robusto

Brewed in the style of a Robust Porter.

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a creamy tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate and mild roasted malt. Medium-bodied with a smooth and chocolaty dark malt flavor. Finishes with some earthy hop flavors and low bitterness.

Hops: German Magnum, Willamette

Malts: Pale 2-row, Simpsons Coffee Malt, Crystal 50, Crystal 155, Chocolate Malt, Carafa III

Fermented with White Labs WLP001 California ale yeast.
