COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the silver medal winner in the Brown Porter division of the 1996 Great American Beer Festival. The mash temperature is higher to produce body and mouth feel. The 2-row barley base, in addition to a combination of chocolate and carastan malts, gives this beer a smooth, round character with chocolate undertones. Many people who normally don’t drink dark beers will drink this beer.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
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 Ram brew pub. Clear dark brown-black hued having small off-white diminishing head with good lacing. Slight coffee malt aroma. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied that starts with restrained slightly sweet malt flavor with hints of roast malt and expresso and finishes dry with some bitterness. A good drinkable beer.

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.
