The Bunker C is a delicious porter. I tasted it at the Brewpub in Berlin, MD. You smell the chocolate and coffee right away. The flavor is packed with the same chocolate and coffee as well as some nutty and toffee notes. It pours black with no head.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
On tap at the brewery in Berlin, MD. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice with lots of dark chocolates, roasts, earthy hops, and a bit of a milk chocolate sweetness. A few fruity esters, a light caramel, and a touch of burnt malt. Flavor is similar. Lots of roasts, dark chocolate, a light milk chocolate sweetness, more caramel, and a good amount of earth. Touches of fruity esters and a hint of vanilla. Finishes dry, roasty, and fairly bitter with a nice earthiness and a solid chocolate sweetness to balance along with a hint of licorice spice. Length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice porter. Bold and robust, but really well balanced with a nice chocolate and caramel sweetness in an easy drinking body. Solid.

Beerman6686 (4596) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2012
This poured a darker brown color with a tan head. Aroma was of licorice, burnt malt and something else weird I coudlnt pick out. Flavor was much the same roasted, light burnt chocolate, and an odd off flavor that really hurt this one
