Robust Porter

Robust Porter Beer

A Robust Porter is a type of dark beer that gets its name from its original purpose: to deliver (or “porter”) heavy loads during London’s 18th century.

Robust Porters are known for their dark colour and full body, which is achieved by using roasted malt or roasted barley. The use of these darker malts also gives Robust Porters their distinct flavour, which has notes of chocolate, coffee, and even smoke.

While Robust Porters might seem like a heavy beer, they are actually quite versatile and can be enjoyed in a variety of settings. Whether you’re looking for something to pair with a hearty meal or simply want to enjoy a rich and flavorful beer, a Robust Porter is always a good choice.
