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 donít drink dark beers will drink this beer.

This site says its my 150th rating from Indiana. Pint at RAM Indy for a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Pitch pour, hugely lacing tan head. Has that lovely gentle roast taste, dark but not burnt, with waves upon waves of rich, deep chocolate. Full-bodied with low bitterness. Very nice!

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Quite dark and clear with more red that most porters. A nice roasted aroma. Flavor features molasses, chocolate, and licorice. This porter is on the sweet side. An enjoyable porter.

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2010
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.

Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Dark red/black appearance. Small head. Dark and quite malty flavor with a fairly decent and tasty coffee flavor. One of the best brews here.

rubbishystuff (2028) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2010
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 canít say it is bad. Serving: Tap

Frank (3343) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
This is one of the better offering from the Ram brewpub, which is not the same as saying itís good. It pours w/ a nice ring of head. Itís 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.

Very dark pour with a chocolate coffee aroma. Taste adds some caramel to the mix. Itís too much for me.
