3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rosemont, IL brewpub. Poured into a chilled glass again, ugh. Very deep brown colored body with an inch thick, dense and very creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty pleasant. A milky chocolate sweetness with some caramel and a light roast. Flavor is similar. A bit thin, but tasty enough. Milky chocolates up front with a nice caramel sweetness. A more distinct coffee presents itself in the light-moderate roastiness that grows a touch towards the end along with a hint of earthy hops. Finishes with a nice chocolate sweetness that’s a bit chalky along with a light, coffee and earthy bitterness. Dry before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Light body with a moderate, soft carbonation. Overall, not a bad porter. Pleasant milky chocolate and caramel with a solid-coffee roast. The chilled glass sucks, but this was enjoyable.

Had in Dallas @ Humperdinks as the Humperdinks brand .. . Medium dark brown, very light foam .. no lacing .. . low smell of tart burnt molasses .. . thin, and only lightly roasty .. . Disorder is right... . Then came the rocks -- jagged rocks, hitting me with their jags.

Tap in Schaumburg. Pours dark brown/black with a medium, fizzy tan head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (roast, chocolate), no hops, and notes of wood and dates. Flavor is malt dominant. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

Arrived to the table a dark black in color with a low tan head. Sweet prune, dark chocolate, light coffee with a mild burn round out the nose. Sweet plum fruitiness hits first in the taste with notes of chocolate, strong overall sweetness and a light cigar ending. Feels creamy and has pretty low carbonation. Overall an okay offering by the RAM in Schaumburg, IL.

Aroma is chocolate and sweet on the nose. Appearance is dark brown/.black. Slightly sweet and balanced out with chocolate notes. Crisp, lightly hopped, . Reminds me more of an amber or ESB then a porter. Great with a burger, steak, or bbq..
