Sample from a bomber. Dark brown, with a small, beige foamy head. The nose is toffee, light roast coffee, and syrup. Sweet and malty, with a light bitterness. Medium body, chalky mouthfeel, and clean finish. This is a pretty nice, easy porter.

From a bottle. Pours cola brown. Smells like chocolate and roasted malts, faint coffee, faint smoke, and light earthiness. Flavor is roasted and smooth with some dark chocolate, medium bitterness, and faint smoke. Medium body and low/medium carbonation.

Bomber into a goblet.Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted notes, hints of vanilla. Taste is thin, sweet, smoked meat, vanilla, roasted almonds. Needs more body. Less sugar, more roast/chocolate malt.

From a bomber at home. Pours ok, but not much happening. Aroma has a smokey chocolate and coffee notes. The flavor is malty and has some of the smokey chocolate and coffee tastes present in the aroma, however the overall taste seemed to be missing something. Its not a bad beer for the price (about $5 for a 22oz bottle), but not the best porter I’ve had.

Bottle with thanks to Eric! Pours nearly opaque dark brown with a very small instantly dissipating beige head. Some lacing sticks around for show. Aroma is roasty, smoky, coffee grounds and ashtrays. Flavor is light plus sweet and noticeably smoky. A touch of astringence but not much bitterness. Fairly light bodied, but not a bad beverage in all.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2013
This was a very tasty smoked brew. Lots of smoke and roasted coffee beans in the aroma, and the taste was full of sweet chocolate, toffee and a subtle bitterness. Overall smooth and delicious. Thanks for sharing, OmegaX.

Bottle thanks to Bytemesis. I like my smoked beers! Aroma is smoke, some ash, light chocolate, roast, and cocoa. Pour is dark, dark brown with a white head. Flavor is light smoke, some roast, semi-sweet chocolate, and bread. Not too bad. Cheers!

Bomber from Incredible. Bristol, what seems to be the problem? I drank a pint of IPA at the brewery, it was full of flaws and uncleanliness. I gave it another go with the smoked porter, a difficult style to make taste bad. Well, there are problems right from the get go. The beer itself looks just like cola. No head, thinnish body, bubbly carbonation. The aroma has that same metallic, sourish thing that the IPA did. I can?t get past it to enjoy any notes of smoke. It took time to work up to a taste and it was definitively less bad. It?s impossible now to ignore the roasty and smokey malts, but the soured grain thing is still there and sticks long with the finish. Palate is like soda. No bueno. Ok. . .I let this warm up all the way to room temp which helped to mask some off notes and drinking it from the bottle eliminates some of the aroma. Still not great, still will not buy again.

Bomber bottle poured clear deep brown w/ avg mostly lasting frothy tan head and good lacing. Faint aroma of roasted malt. Sweet & smoke hit you upfront malty in the middle and faint bitterness at the end, the smoke stays with you as it is long lasting. Soft carbonation, watery in texture, light to medium body. This beer isn’t one I’d drink by itself, but would pair it with a meaty meal.
