3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg RAM. Deep, slightly brownish black color. Roasty malt nose. Taste of the usual coffee and roast malts. Yet it sits nicely on my tongue. Hops are more in evidence here than in most porters, adding to the malt’s roasty bitterness. Despite the lighter alcohol content, this is the 8th sample beer I’ve had, and it’s starting to make me a little heady.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish together and a small tan head. Nose brings out toasted malt, some cocoa, and bready notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, dry cocoa and a slight nuttiness. Well-balanced and clean. Very drinkable porter.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served as Humperdinks Total Disaster Porter. Nonic pint draft at the Humperdinks in Dallas, Texas. The pour is an opaque brown black with a 1/2 inch well formed tan head. The aroma is sour malt, hint of roast and some vanilla sweet. The taste is iced coffee with milk, big shot of diacetyl as the beer warmed. The palate is medium to light bodied, low carbonation and the off flavors in the finish. Old school brewpub beer in all the wrong ways.

"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."

Sampler at Schaumburg. Brown-black body. Caramel toffee, sugar plum, raisin. Not really that enjoyable, sticky cloying specialty malt, not much going on. Not undrinkable, but sub-par. Dunkel-Schwarz characteristics.
