2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Notes from Indy Winterfest.
Pours a nice black.
Aroma is mediocre, not much to it, some malt. Flavor is similar to aroma. Mouthfeel is normal. Overall not that great.

Deep chestnut brown in appearance with a sweet, nutty aroma. Tastes of chocolate, walnuts, molasses. Subtle hop backbone. Nice.

Deep reddish brown with a bittersweet chocolate aroma. Starts with a chocoate overtones and finish very smooth for a porter. I enjoyed this while waiting for my dessert in Dallas.

A typical porter. Opaque black body with a coarse tan head. Flavor was predominantly roasted malt bitter chocolate with a slight acidic sour taste. Overall, the flavor was too weak to be considered an above-average example of the style.

Got a growler of this from the RAM. I thought it was really good for a standard type porter. Really easy to drink, but not a lot of different flavors. That is ok though I drunk the whole jug. Simple, but good...

Maybe I don’t know what a great porter is, but this tasted good and made me happy. A little bitter, a little sweet.

Not sure why Ram gets no love. Found this porter to be quite good. My only issue is that it feels more like a stout. Either way nice chocolate notes. I could drink a lot of this.

Draft in Arlington, TX....
I thought they poured me a stout. Nice thick dark color and decent foamy head. Lil too much coffe and chocolate after taste for me.

Tap at Northgate; nice roast and smoky in flavor; very tasty; poured dark brown to light black; a definite reorder. (#52)

The Ram Brewery at Schaumberg, an excellent porter. I remember I liked it better than all there at the Micro Brewery until I had the Russian Imperial Stout Seasonal. If you like porters its more drinkable than the Russian version, but they are similar, overall its the strength and boldness of the other that makes me forget some of this one. Still very good.
