22oz bottle. Clear reddish brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, vanilla and light coffee. Flavor is rich and malty with lots of chocolate, roast and a light caramel sweetness. Medium to full body with a soft, creamy mouth feel. This is a really great porter, very rich and flavorful.

Bomber. Pours black with red highlights when held up to the light. Has a medium beige head with decent retention; leaves a skiff of foam and some lace. Aroma is bready, chocolate milk, licorice, burnt caramel. Taste is bittersweet. Has a faint hoppy flavor to go along with the roastiness of the malt. Mouthfeel is creamy, body and carbonation medium. Well-made and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed at the Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, VT. Pours a brown colour with a beige head and red highlights. Chocolate nose with vanilla hints and well-blended roasted malts. Nice creamy starting mouthfeel. Porter dark fruits taste with some roasted malts. Mild dry finish with the hops. A nice treat, a little hoppier than most porter.

Tap @ Fifteenth Ave Hophouse... Poured black with a thin head. Nice clean porter. Some dark malts and toasted sweetness. Faint roast, low bitterness. Smooth, hardly any astringency in this beer. Milk chocolate, malted cocoa notes. Nice drinking porter.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark malt (smooth), chocolate, and something bitter that might be coffee. It finishes arguably dry, and coffee bitter. Not espresso, but coffee. It’s a good drink.
