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.

On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish together and a small tan head. Nose brings out toasted malt, some cocoa, and bready notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, dry cocoa and a slight nuttiness. Well-balanced and clean. Very drinkable porter.

Dogbrick (11469) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
From a sampler at the Indy location: Pours almost black with a medium thick tan head. The nose is fairly strong roasted coffee and malt. A little on the thin side, but very tasty nonetheless. There is a nice concoction of coffee, roasted malt, caramel and malt in there. The finish is lightly bitter and keeps with the chocolate theme too. This is probably the best beer I tried at the Indy RAM, but there are many better Porters out there.
