The Sixth Beer o' Xmas 2012: Firestone Walkers Robust Porter

We're at the midway point of the Twelve Beers o' Xmas, I hope your finding it a welcome distraction from all the B.S. that accompanies the Holidays. So, for the Sixth Beer o' Xmas that the Beer Gnerd pushed on thee? Firestone Walkers Robust Porter!

Pours a deep brownish-black with reddish hues and an inch of thick, creamy, off-white head, great head retention. The nose is of plums, other dark fruits, roastiness, and some chocolate. The taste starts with coffee notes and some chocolate. There is an earthiness in the middle, with some molasses as well. The finish has a nice piney bitterness with hints of oak. 

I've never had a bad Firestone Walker beer, this one is no exception. FW's Robust Porter is available at most liquor stores around the state.

Cheers!
