3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint toasty malts, caramel, pecan and a hint of molasses. The flavor was dryish and nutty with notes of caramel and molasses, a hint of coffee and vague roast nuts. Medium length roasty and nutty finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Nose is nutty, indeed, with heavy dark chocolate and brown sugar, pie spice with wood and a little bourbon, malt. Pours pitch with a large, tight light brown head. Taste is sweet, malty medium body thin at points, but creamy and rich at others; bit airy with a yeasty/mineral touch behind light fruitiness, some bourbon barrel but for deft rounding, and a nice subtle wood component. The pecan element isn’t overdone, just a bit of lipid fullness and I think some mild scorch, but the stronger dark chocolate is sultry and whatever porter is the base is nice. Smooth and satisfying.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy brown with medium frothy tan head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong pecan, chocolate, and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and light bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink, a good porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of pecans, nuts, earth, malt, figs, raisins and a touch of smoke! Medium to Full-bodied; Strong earthy and nutty flavours at first with a very deep pungent toasty flavour and even more pit fruits noticeable, all with some light caramel and smoked peat notes as well. Aftertaste is rich and complex with the full flavours of nuts and earth really meshing well with the sweetness of the caramel and pit fruits. Overall, a nice porter with a huge nuttiness (expected) and a defined sweet flavour from the caramel and pit fruits (not expected) make this great to drink. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$7.99 sampled at home here in Washington on 15-June-2014.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Opaque black body, respectable beige head. Sweet, nutty porter, as you would expect I suppose, some salted pecan in the aftertaste. Sweet brown chocolate, a touch of cookie dough. Easy on the palate. Good beer, maybe a little too pricey for the final product though...love to see it in sixpacks as opposed to a bomber that costs the better part of ten dollars.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle courtesy of radarsock. Cheers, Ander! Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted pecans, some light nuttiness, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor follows with roasted malt, some light nuttiness that almost comes off as peanuts, some earthy hops, and some dryness toward the finish. Interesting porter overall; medium to full in body and nutty.
