Black pour with a tall, mocha head.
Aroma of cocoa powder.
The flavor follows the aroma. A bit of sweetness but not overly so, very little bitterness.
A bit thin but otherwise a nice beer.

Tasting from 22oz bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin white cream film of head. Really malty aroma and thin but smooth malty flavor. Good example of english style porter.

Beer #16 Asheville trip (not counting re-rates by the way). Pours a very, very deep brown, black at first glance. Flavor and aromas match - light chocolate, some coffee, balanced. A bit thinner than I would have liked, but nice.

I got this porter in a recent trade but can’t remember for the life of me who sent it, thanks to whoever you are. Dark black color, boring smell that only briefly suggested malts. The flavor however was malt heavy, robust, not bad at all but I am a huge sucker for any porter. Overall I would not purchase this beer but I was happy to have had the opportunity to try it.

Bomber. Deep brown body. Frothy, beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Tartness in finish. Taste of coffee and roasted malts along with cardboard. Lingering bitterness and a lingering off-taste of soy sauce. Lots of better porters out there.
