4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer as it sets in my glass, black-a-vised, the head is monumental in size, light chocolate in color and frothy in texture, as the head disappears, a thick coating of lace forms on the glass. Nose is roasted and toasted grains, sweet, crisp and fresh, a real treat for the senses, start is thickly malt and somewhat sweet, top is middling and rich in feel to the palate. Finish is moderately acidic, the hops pronounced in their spicy bite, bitter chocolate dry aftertaste, a nice porter that is certainly worthy a try for the lovers of the “Dark” side.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark brown, chocolate nose. Creamy palate with big chocolate flavor throughout. Med bodied and chocolate dominates this brew. Nice body and flavor throughout and finish is dry. Description says it has a smoky flavor as well, but I don’t get it...just cocoa.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells like sweetened trash. Tastes so strange. Not like a porter at all. Cereal, basil, cooked vegetables. No.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pretty average porter. Pours a muddy brown with a light tan head. Smells good, like vanilla and coffee. Taste is basic porter, lots of coffee, and a slightly weird aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewpup.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted dark malt, smoke and sweet chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Bomber. Notes from tasting session. Mild chocolate nose. A bit of chocolate on mid-palate. Some roast, burnt flavors grow on the finish and lasts. Very smooth and well balanced stuff.
