3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brought this home in a 1/2 gallon growler from the "Ram Restaurant and Brewery" in Indy. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. The small light brown frothy head is mostly diminishing with minimal lacing. The nose is butterscotch, flowers, coffee, caramel, maple syrup, and a hint of medicine. The balanced flavor is mostly floral with a light acidity and a burnt finish that speaks of roasted coffee or espresso. The full body is soft with a dry feel to the finish.

Aroma, flavor... what aroma? What flavor? This didn't taste like anything at all to me, horrible porter. Didn't like either of the beers sampled from this brewery, huge disappointment.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A typical porter. Opaque black body with a coarse tan head. Flavor was predominantly roasted malt bitter chocolate with a slight acidic sour taste. Overall, the flavor was too weak to be considered an above-average example of the style.

Pours a traditional opaque black porter color. Lots of tan head, very reactive. Little aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor isn't very complex but not dissapointing. A very average porter, there's better, there's worse.

On tap in Dallas. This might be one of the worst porters that I've ever had. A little coffee and cocoa aroma. Deep, clear cola brown. Tangy, flat and scorched. Pitiful, watery porter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Dallas location. Smooth licoriche-chocolate aroma and flavor. Dark malts compliment this nicely. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Black. Dry and very roasty, notes of tar and flowery hops. Clean and hard mouthfeel and a thin body leads to a corroded metal finish.

Not bad considering some of their other beers I have tried. Reminded me of Mactarnahan's. Another Big Horn clone beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The best beer of the evening, which is a surprise considering that I’m not especially fond of porter. Expected flavors, nothing off. Roasty but not too sharp or dry. Dallas Greenville Avenue location.
