COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

22oz bottle. Pours black with a small creamy brown head. Roasty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Mildly sweet with a heavy roasted chocolate malt character with a bit of caramel. Medium-to-full bodied with a roasted malt finish. Very good.

Bomber courtesy of tricyclist. Thanks. Bottles 04/13-16. Dark brown color with a small beige that recedes to a fine film. The aroma is very mild with sweet cocoa. The taste is weak cocoa, a bit of red fruits and some caramel. The palate is not as full as I prefer a porter and it finishes short and metallic. Overall: not my favorite. Edit: as I work my way through the bottle I keep detecting a sour note. Possibly this beer has the beginnings of an infection. Something is definitely off in this porter.

_angst_ (4261) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2016
Bomber courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge pale mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with rustic dark bread, toasted malts, coffee, paprika and moist soil. Taste is very tiny sweet, tiny sour, tiny malty and malty. Mouthfeel is round, sparkling and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and tiny bitter with rustic sourdough bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, dark roast coffee, paprika, leather, hazelnut skins and moist soil. Defect but not infected (I think). Huge carbonation and fairly strange malt notes.

On nitro at Mad Mex in West Philly. Crimson brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is coffee, cocoa and caramel. Super silky with a soft tingle. Tastes like it smells; the roasty notes balancing the malty sweetness with nutty hints. Very quaffable.
