3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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..

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ C.B. & Potts in Greenwood Village, CO. Dark deep brown with a light tan foamy head. Smell is malty cocoa with hints of coffee. No surprises there. Taste is very typical of the style: medium bodied with nothes of chocolate, subtle coffee, very light carmel. Has a finish that kinda faded out in flavor, somehwat stale tasting there. Not special, kinda weak.

Tried at numerous Ram locations. Decent but average porter. Trying to appeal to large audience by being a bit safe. However it does the job well and I can’t say it is bad. Serving: Tap

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is one of the better offering from the Ram brewpub, which is not the same as saying it’s good. It pours w/ a nice ring of head. It’s earthy, slightly smokey, light bodied w/ medium carbonation. Coffee and earthy bitterness balance some sweetness. This is a decently put together beer but nothing really special.
