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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2007
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.

On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a dark brown with no head, the aroma is of slight chocolate and a little bit of coffee, the flavor has a little chocolate on the front end but seems very artificial, almost like coco puffs but the cheap kind that your mom used to buy and not the good stuff, pass.

Appearance: Dark brown. Opaque. Half a finger of mocha foam. Nose: Decent roasted malt forward. Lighter cocoa and coffee. Taste: similar to nose. Roasty coffee and nuts with cocoa. Lightly sweet Body: Medium and smooth Parting thoughts: Decent porter, but a bit thin on flavor.

This draft brew from the brewery in Indianapolis poured a small head of mostly diminishing finely sized brown colored bubbles the left behind a good lace. The body was an opaque dark brown color. The aroma was mild with malt and molasses notes. The mouth feel was smooth and flat. The flavor was mild malty and brown beer like.

Black color with no head. Damn, this place just can not brew beer to have an aroma to save their lives! Bitter coffee taste. Very watery body.

Tap - Lacey WA
A deep dark borm color this was a decnt proter. Nothing special easy to drink but the flavors where very light. Felt as thought it was watered down. More chocolte and darker malts and less water after brewing. Needs some help and some richer flavors.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Hmm...pretty weak and watery for a porter. All the flavors are there...just not as strong as they need to be. Then again, with a burger I suppose this served to wash it down. Not awful or anything...just unremarkable.

theisti (4138) - Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2015
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.
