3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
