2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10th Annual Mid*Winter Brewfest. Pours to a dark brown body with a thin white head. The aroma is light and nutty. Kind of plain. The flavor has immediate flaws. Seems to be brewed too hot. Notes of off-flavors like butterscotch and celery. The palate is vibrant with a caramel feel. Not digging this one at all.

Pours to an extremely dark but transluscent ruby/garnet body with an off-white head. The aroma is a strong roasty coffee. Not much else going on, however. The flavor is roasty tea and coffee. I swear there is some butterscotchy diacetyl in this. The palate is dry, medium bodied, and so-so.

(on tap @ the brewery) An aroma of stinky cheese, like many of their beers. Pours a pitch black brown with a fading head. Flavor is more related to a brown ale than a porter. This is an insult considering that they make a good brown ale and a great stout. Basically, this aint bad but it aint memorable. Very hoppy and lacks malt punch. Better off going across street and having a guinness draught on tap.

Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006, listed as "Disporterly Conduct", clever ha ha. Beautiful opaque walnut-to-black with a thin ring of foam and creamy tan head though it dies quickly....aroma is stunning: strong, roasty coffee and lightly burnt malts, rich underlying caramel, faint wafts of gingerbread and, with some warmth, star anise and vanilla, a lovely balance of spice and roasty porter goodness.....luscious body, nutty-oily in mouthfeel with strong touches of dried fruit (cherry, fig), medium-bodied coffee, bitter chocolate and roasty dark grains....somewhat light-bodied but there’s enough heft to support the richness...hmm this seems to be rated on the low side of this fine brewery’s wares but it was my favorite for sure.

On tap at the Ale Asylum as "Disporterly Conduct". Poured clear mahogany with a ring of beige head. Nose was of lightly-roasted milk chocolate and not much more... found a not-too-pleasant dark sweetness as this warmed up. Lightly-roasted milk chocolate and other grainy sweetness in the flavor.. but it never really came together. Rather light on the palate with grainy chocolate bitterness at the finish.

Draught at the brewery tasting room. Today they were calling it ’disporterly conduct’. Clear dark brown color with some orange around the edges. Head was white and failed to leave any lace on the glass. Light roasted malt and milk chocolate aroma. Slightly sweet with chocolate, toasted bread, and raisin flavors.

I had a beer called Diporterly Conduct at the brewpub. I am rating this as the same beer. The body was black with a light khaki colored head. There was plenty of roast and coffee in teh aroma with some soy beans. The taste was slightly sweet with some light roasted coffee and a little bit of pancakes. This was smooth with a dry finish.

Tap @ Brewery. Had a good roasted coffee aroma. Black with tan head and some lacing. Good medium sweet roasted malt flavor with some bitterness. Sweet roast on palate. Good beer.

Clear dark brown body. Dark caramelized/patent aroma with dark chocolate in the BG. The flavor has sweet brown malt and acidic dark chocolate as well as a buttery note. Needs a bigger roast/acid element.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 On tap
Aroma / Appearance - The murky black body had just a hint of color in it by the light of the candle. Scents of ground coffee beans, nuttiness and malt came up from the glass as I let it sit.
Flavor / Palate - There is no doubt that this is a coffee based porter. The first sip alerts you to this fact and doesn’t relax its stranglehold until the sampler is empty. A faint trace of nutty malts is evident in the background after time. Slightly too thin and watery for my liking although the finish is dry and pleasing. If it had a little more body this one would be excellent in my books. Instead it goes down as well made with room for improvement.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some butterscotch or toffee notes. Dark brown in color with some ruby light showing through and an off-white head. Coffee flavors initially that fade quickly into a nutty caramel. Overall it is sweet, n ot bitter or roasty. Like a darker, nut-brown ale. Light body, watery texture that is very smooth.
