COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was upon my emergence from my craft that I realized I had traveled not to another place, but to another time. About me lumbered a number of stout men, burdened by heavy loads. Finding a sudden need to slake my thirst and steady my mind, I called out to one of these porters. He pointed to a tavern, inside of which I found this roasty, chocolaty, and supremely drinkable brew.

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.

Tap at Gigantic, PDX, 22/05/13. Very dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head. Nose is roast malt, biscuit, dark toffee. Taste carries a good roast malt bite, molasses, a touch of chocolate. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitter roast in the finish. Solid enough porter.

Sammy (9256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Mondiale 2013. A very good porter. Black with almost no head, yet a lace trail. A tasty hoppy porter, with good drinkability. One of my favourites over this fest.

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a deep dark amber brown win a small beige head. Aroma is very stereotypical of a porter, with light roasted malt, dry malts. Flavour of dry roasted malts, toasted malts, and dry cocoa. Awesome dry palate, with a full body for a porter. Great stuff!

Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies.
Night will fall and the dark will rise when a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost; the battle’s won but the child is lost.
