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.

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.

Kevin (2159) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 5, 2005
nice dark pour with a touch of red. and a big grey head. aroma is dusty not much here, served too cold. taste is sweet chocolate with a cherry robitussin finish. a nice refreshing brew that doesn’t have much against it or much that sticks out.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Dark body with lasting one finger head. Taste-raisin, fig, some bittersweet chocolate. Porter aspects are nicely done. Slight medicine/cough syrup on the finish that detracts. Malty syrupy nose. Nose smells how I imagine raisin extract would smell.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Chocolate with very mild roastiness underneath. Deep brown to black with a decent head. Watery fore prepares you for dissapointment, but a strong roastiness and chocolate, coffee notes save it. Very tasty and true to style porter flavors here. The watery start prevents it from greatness unfortunately.
