"very smooth if not terribly robust. roasted malt abounds in the aroma and flavor, with a hint of chocolate and smoke. pretty well done, and the best we had there, but not a standout."

Had in Dallas @ Humperdinks as the Humperdinks brand .. . Medium dark brown, very light foam .. no lacing .. . low smell of tart burnt molasses .. . thin, and only lightly roasty .. . Disorder is right... . Then came the rocks -- jagged rocks, hitting me with their jags.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Ram - Wheeling, IL. Poured a clear, deeper brown with no head after a few seconds. Some dark chocolate and coffee notes in the aroma.. quite light and hard to pin down. Flavor found mildly-roasted dark and milkier chocolates (nice blend)... some light coffee bitterness... powerfully average porter. Flavors kind of dissapeared on the back-end... not good overall.

Draft to taster at Ram in Indy. Looks solid; a translucent dark cola with very thin light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of dark chocolate too. Good on the palate. Enjoyable.

Had on tap at the Indianapolis Ram. Chocolate and coffee notes, but like they’re mixed with water. Good flavor, just not enough of it.
