3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
WBC ’06 winner from the Seattle Ram. Dark brown colour. Light chocolate and rye bread aroma. Mild character still shows some sweet dark chocolates, toast, nuts. It’s a bit tart in the finish, seemingly from the dark malts. Award-winning "Brown Porter" is really structed like a "Robust Porter" but without the hoppiness. Enjoyable.

On Tap: at The Ram in Meridian. This beauty is dark brown with an off-white head. It shares a wonderful, chocolaty aroma. The flavor shows a great balance with the charcoal and chocolate tastes. The feel is thin & oily like many porters. Quite a yummy little treat!

Black color with no head. Damn, this place just can not brew beer to have an aroma to save their lives! Bitter coffee taste. Very watery body.
