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.

2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 6-4-7-3-14=34
The color is dark, almost black, with creamy beige head. Strong coffeish aroma. The mouthfeel is soft, with also some good dark chocolate and just a normal amount of roasted malts and fresh coffee. Correct bitterness.
Very pleasant Porter, fresh.

Black color. Some aroma of roasted malt. Medium bodied, roasted malt flavor. Not bad Stout.

yngwie (13374) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. A dark brown beer looking almost clear, and topped by a beige head of moderate size. Roasted, toffee-ish aroma with some coffee and treacle. The flavor is mostly roasted and toffee-ish, with some bitterness chiming in in the back. Full body, semi-dry. Certainly a fine porter, but it’s a bit boring and uninteresting. A bit low on ABV maybe. Well, wouldn’t mind drinking more of it though. 130629

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
WBC ’06 winner from the Seattle Ram. Dark brown colour. Light chocolate and rye bread aroma. Mild character still shows some sweet dark chocolates, toast, nuts. It’s a bit tart in the finish, seemingly from the dark malts. Award-winning "Brown Porter" is really structed like a "Robust Porter" but without the hoppiness. Enjoyable.
