Robust Porter - Great Winter Beer!

by BeerSmith

This is a very strong, robust Porter almost bordering on a stout based on a modified old BYO recipe I believe. At the moment it is my favorite beer of the 6 I have on tap!!

Really Good - Robust!

This one came out really good if you like a robust porter!

One of my all time favorites, brewing again now with some slightly darker malts and a revised water profile. Great Stuff.
