I expected to really like this, but I was unpleasantly surprised. Poured a dark brown with a ridiculously thick head that took a long time to disappear. Overly carbonated. Has some roasted malt flavors, but finishes almost sour. Really not one of the better porters.

Gift from SJ Bottled. Ok I like Porters, this was good, but average. Typical, nice roast, coffee and dry bitter chocolate finish.. Looks like the got an idea, now knock it out the park next time.

Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours pretty dark brown with a creamy frothy beige head that deconstructs in a weird way. Aromas of chocolate and burnt malt, with something suggesting a little sour - or maybe it’s coffee. Med minus body. Flavor is ashy chocolate with some burnt malt and coffee. Seems halfway between stout and porter. Maybe a little bit of lactose in the finish - or something that suggests that. Nice porter.

Draft at the brewpub. Black and lighter around the edges. Foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasty. Coffee, roast malt, and some hop bitterness.

Strong aroma and tempting appearance leads to a more mild than expected taste and simple mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 1/14/10. Another of the offerings I had at the brewpub the other night. Came out a dark black with a bit of light around the edges. Small tan head capped it off. Sip rings and lace present. Scents of coffee, milk chocolate, and dark breads.
Another full-bodied beer here. I like the depth of this. This is definitely a more coffee-forward beer. Flavors of espresso, pumpernickel bread, and graham crackers. This was my favorite offering of the night I think. Well done!

Draft, sampler: a tad boring, pours dark brown with a tasty looking tan head. It smells chocolaty, and roasty, but leaves you wishing for it in the flavor.

Draft sampler pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of spice. Taste is much of the same.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with fresh coffee and light dark chocolate. The flavor has dark chocolate sweetness, roasted malts, and coffee. Good stuff.
