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.

Got a growler of this from the RAM. I thought it was really good for a standard type porter. Really easy to drink, but not a lot of different flavors. That is ok though I drunk the whole jug. Simple, but good...

pours a deep brown, little to no head. aroma is of lightly roasted malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate and a bit earthy. the liquid is thin.. dry on the palate. distinct taste of the malts, chocolate and coffee. nice mix of flavors although nothing dominates, good balance here. dry, slightly bitter finish.

This site says its my 150th rating from Indiana. Pint at RAM Indy for a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Pitch pour, hugely lacing tan head. Has that lovely gentle roast taste, dark but not burnt, with waves upon waves of rich, deep chocolate. Full-bodied with low bitterness. Very nice!
