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.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, lots of coffee, hints of dark cocoa, dark fruits, and some caramel comes through as well. Taste is a mix of cocoa powder, dark chocolate, into slightly sweet dark fruits, finishing fairly coffee forward, slightly roasted.
