Came in a nice over sized Ram pint glass..very nice.
Nice dark,dark brown almost too dark for a typical porter, quater inch coffee and creme coloured head..frothy..stays a while.
When I first get the pint the aroma is rather subdued..due to it being served a little too chilled..but after a few minutes I begin to smell excelent coffee and chocolate hints.
Mmmm quite a tatsy porter, very nice not too sweet malts,milky chocolate flavour with a good bitter aftertaste.
Very smooth and creamy on the tongue..and not too watery , which seesm to be a problem with brewpub porters.
Very drinkable stuff indeed.

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. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Dark red/black appearance. Small head. Dark and quite malty flavor with a fairly decent and tasty coffee flavor. One of the best brews here. JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours a lighter brown than expected with an touch of tan head. Nose and taste is a bit more mellow than most porters. A touch of chocolate sweetness and generally very approachable and drinkable. More pleasing to the masses than to someone who really likes a great porter I suspect. As one of the masses in this case I found the beer to be very solid. dnstone (3524) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Serious roasted coffee aroma. Deep brown in color. Light mouthfeel a clean taste with the roastiness coming through in the finish.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

On tap at Schaumburg location. Pour is deep dark brown and little to no head. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sweet upfront. Notes of sweet chocolate and smoky ash but leaves a bit to be desired. Not great but ok.

Tap at Dallas location. Smooth licoriche-chocolate aroma and flavor. Dark malts compliment this nicely. Not bad. Beaver (1845) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2003
The Total Disorder Porter poured a dark black/brown with red highlights. It had a small head that quickly dissipated to a lacing and collar that coated the glass on the way down. It smelled terrible! Kind of like smokey leather and aerosol - I don't remember this from previous samples I've had. The taste made up for the smell though. It had a very big roasted malt taste with some chocolate tones and a nice slightly bitter balance. Overall, this was a great tasting porter with some B.O. issues. burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The body was black with a tan head. The taste was what I describe as a medium-intensity porter flavor. In other words, there are better porters out there but there are ones that are worse too. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Pours a dark brown w/ a tinge of red. Aromas of coffee/roast malts. Nice flavors of roasted coffee with some chocolate.
