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.

GhostFace (321) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2012
pours a deep brown, little to no head. aroma is of lightly roasted malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate and a bit earthy. the liquid is thin.. dry on the palate. distinct taste of the malts, chocolate and coffee. nice mix of flavors although nothing dominates, good balance here. dry, slightly bitter finish.

JoePeesie (860) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours a lighter brown than expected with an touch of tan head. Nose and taste is a bit more mellow than most porters. A touch of chocolate sweetness and generally very approachable and drinkable. More pleasing to the masses than to someone who really likes a great porter I suspect. As one of the masses in this case I found the beer to be very solid.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2012
At the Ram in Wheeling. Pours a deep brown-black with a tan head. Nose is toasty, light chocolate and a roasty note. Some caramel comes through, hops are quite restrained overall. On tasting, crisp and dry, some medium caramel notes and a nice enough roast quality. Quite clean overall. Balanced bitterness and sweetness. Not too bad.

On tap at The Ram in Seattle. Pours dark with a thin tan head. Ashy, smokey smell. Bit of a chocolate taste, smoky and caramel flavors. I thought it was a pretty solid beer.
