3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted and chocolate, with a rounded and full flavor profile that ends in an oddly bitter and somewhat disappointing finish. Moderate porter palate, in part to be expected. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber from EZ. poured a thinner black body under a large bubbly super light beige head. Aroma of chocolate milk lite, lactose, chocolate, grains and dust. Body is thinner and the carboantion is on the strong side with a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more roastiness then the aroma. Decent beer but not in love with the palate on this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Almost completely opaque dark red color, minimal light tan head. Mild hop, some chocolate aroma. Mostly a bit watered down, it seems. Carbonation is prominent. Very light sweetness. Light bitter. Kind of a boring porter.

Bomber from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy brown head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, berries and a nutty note. The taste is roasted malts, berries, chocolate, milky note and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Eminently drinkable. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pitch black with large white head. nose of chocolate and some crystal malt. solid bitterness before high crystal and chocolate malt with a bit of an astringent character. some yeast esters before a dry finish without much residual sweetness. a flavorful porter, somewhere between a brown and a robust, but the malt recipe results in a stinging malt character that makes repeated drinking challening

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted burnt coffee flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a drinkable soft brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty aroma with a bit of chocolate. Pours black, not completely opaque, good clarity, huge tan head with great retention, a slug of foam remained throughout the drink. Flavor: mellow roast, very smooth, hints of chocolate and caramel, a good easy drinking porter. I thought the body was a bit on the thin side, very smooth and creamy on the palate though, medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a kahki head that fades. Aroma light roasted malt and earthy. Taste is more toasty roasty malt with faint mild coco. Palate is slick and watery which finishes dry. Not bad!
