Smuttynose – Robust Porter

Our most award-winning beer, Robust Porter honors the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London, where the style originated.

It’s a good bet that when Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, his beer would have been very similar to our Robust Porter. This smooth, deceptively drinkable beer features an assertive hop profile which accentuates signature flavors of coffee and dark chocolate.

Port City – Porter

Port City Porter is all about the bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee notes evident in every step of drinking from the nose to the taste to the finish. Our Porter is dark chocolate-almost black brown in color with a complex malt character that enhance the aromas and flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Our unique twist with the Porter is having it be robust yet have the smooth, refreshing character on the finish that doesn’t weigh down the palate.

Green Flash – Double Stout – Black Ale

We explored 19th Century British Stout recipes, then charted a fresh course to land on a modern American version of the old-world classic. Our Double Stout encompasses the very best of both worlds. Golden naked oats, dark crystal and roasted malt offer a luscious balance of bittersweet chocolate and hints of coffee.  Fair winds and following seas. Smooth sailing, all the way home.
