2013-12-14. Black body nice frothy tan head. Aroma is pleasant. Sweet mild dark malt, light roast and whisper of coconut. Flavour has a nice sweet malt core but gains a moderate bitterness and finishes on the bitter side. Light spice character in the background? Very smooth medium to full bodied palate, soft carbonation. 4+ Deceptively drinkable. On tap at Abraxas, Miami

Floral and roasted malt on nose. More sweet floral notes on palate along with traditional porter flavors. For some reason it just wasnt completely my thing. Well made beer though.

I think this was on tap - Pours near black with a tan head. The aroma is of roast malt, cocoa, and even flowery. The flavor is sweet chocolate malt with herbal character. It may be the jasmine that I’m getting there. There’s also a subtle fruitiness. It has a creamy full body and finishes with a roasted, pleasant bitterness. Really, really good. Fantastic brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fairly dark black color and leaves the same color body with a slightly off-white foamy one and a half finger head that dies at a moderate pace leaving some clingy foamy lacing in its wake; the aroma has some light floral (I’m guessing its the calendula flowers, the bottle describes) notes that are up front and I do get the jasmine and honey coming through in a sweet way; the taste is mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors but the normal "roastiness" of an American Porter comes through, roasty yet floral aftertaste, dry sweet finish; easy on the palate - uh...perhaps maybe; overall, I would say a very well done American Porter, alcohol seems to be well hidden

Bomber. Thanks to mike12da. Chocolate, tobacco, heavy floral punches. Thin brown color. Light chocolate, jasmine tea, mild sweet fruitiness, and light honey. Medium body. Pleasant and smooth. Lots of herbal notes in flavor. Very light body for an imperial. Tasty.
