COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

This was the second time I had this beer, but first time rating it. Id have to say the first time I had it, It left a better impression, possibly just the tap that day. So I gave it the benefit of the doubt, and combined my memory and current rating. Semi sweet chocolate nose, medium body with a slight bitter finish.

Chocolate with very mild roastiness underneath. Deep brown to black with a decent head. Watery fore prepares you for dissapointment, but a strong roastiness and chocolate, coffee notes save it. Very tasty and true to style porter flavors here. The watery start prevents it from greatness unfortunately.

Had this one at the brewpub in Schaumburg, Illinois, marketted as "Royal Disorder Porter." Opaque brown pour with a mild hoppiness in the nose, smooth and balanced with some floral hoppiness and chocolate malt. Very good!

On tap in a very well-priced sampler. Opaque dark brown-near black color. Mildly smokey nose, some coffee malts. Smokey flavor. Heavy, but good.

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.

Its like a desert beer. Very flavorfull, with a great chocolate bite. Try one in an irish car bomb, its like eating cake. I can’t say it is agreat porter, but its definatly one of my favorite beers.
