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.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. A dark brown beer looking almost clear, and topped by a beige head of moderate size. Roasted, toffee-ish aroma with some coffee and treacle. The flavor is mostly roasted and toffee-ish, with some bitterness chiming in in the back. Full body, semi-dry. Certainly a fine porter, but it’s a bit boring and uninteresting. A bit low on ABV maybe. Well, wouldn’t mind drinking more of it though. 130629

Draft - Toasted malts and roast. Deep black brown with a small beige head. Molasses, anise and some dark roast coffee. Pretty decent, with a roasty light burnt finish.

Draft in Indy. Brownish-black hue with an off-white head. Sweet roasted aroma. Medium body with well balanced texture. Full flavor of coffee, chocolate and caramel. More to my style, therefore I enjoyed this the most.

BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Tap in Schaumburg. Pours dark brown/black with a medium, fizzy tan head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (roast, chocolate), no hops, and notes of wood and dates. Flavor is malt dominant. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

(Draught) Interesting taste to this porter. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head.

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
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.

Thin slightlly peaty porter, resembles more of an Irish dry stout in body and taste.
