FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2012
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with orange highlights and a huge foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was lightly roasty and woody with hints of anise and coffee. The flavor was dry, bitter, roasty and had notes of coffee and anise. Medium finish and body. Not really my style.

Pours dark brown, very light, fizzy head. Very lively CO2 makes it almost like a soda. Aroma hints of caramel and bread, but not very distinctive. Not a great beer, but ok to try.

Eructoblaster (3475) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle - 12oz. Pours a black opaque body with a huge beige foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with roasted cereals and some coffeeish hints. Taste is dominated by roastiness. Some oaky notes are also noticeable. Alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a sharp bitter/roasty finish. Solid Porter, not for lager people.

BillKismet (3602) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Raven-colored with ruby highlights and a soft, poofy beige head.Enjoyable rough, roasty black patent nose, full of chilled air heated by a burst of charcoal. Old world roasty porter flavor--again, it’s full of charcoal, black patent and some ash. A beer that is everything a benchwarmer deserves. Enjoyable.

Bif (1797) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle- Pours a dark brown with a good tan head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and hint of dark fruit. Mild flavor of roasted malt, dark chocolate hint of coffee. Has a mellow bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Very well balanced. No hint of the 6.3% ABV. Easy drinker, very enjoyable. A solid English pale ale. Another good beer from a small beer crafter.

AirForceHops (4989) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 Tap @ the Brewery, Milford, NY. Served in taster glass. Also had in a 12 oz bottle from the brewery. Aroma has dark roasted barley and chocolate malt. The flavor is robust. Sweet and malty upfront and finish is great bitter hops. Also, hints of nuts and wood as the brew warms up. Medium to full mouthfeel. Excellent balance. I wish I had bought more to enjoy later. (Only 2 bottles left) This porter is NOT a benchwarmer, it’s a heavy hitting cleanup hitter. Nice job from the head brewer in Milford!

12 oz. bottle. Black color with a light head. A little more sweet than roasty for my liking, but drinkable.
