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.

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.

Thin slightlly peaty porter, resembles more of an Irish dry stout in body and taste.

Dogbrick (10001) - 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.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Skunky sour-milk aroma. Flavor is not that bad. Smooth and mildy roasty, watery finish with some grass flavors, but an OK drink. Average porter.

BVery (8688) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Tap. Dark pour with a tan head. Mild coffee and chocolate on the nose, thin body, mild roasty flavor. Decent, but kind of boring.
