22. Pours an opaque black with a surging, gorgeous dark tan head and plenty of lace. Really sticks around for a while. Sweet sugary chocolate nose, even through the mountain of head. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet milk chocolate and maybe a bit of lacto tingly to it. Drinkable enough, not totally broken. But not in the greatest shape, either. Mild sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 22 oz bottle this poured black with a moderate tan head and light lacing. Nose is of roasted malts with some chocolate aromas. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more malts than hops, and the finish is a bit grainy.

Bomber from Market of Choice that I had to pick up due to the fact that I went to Dundee Elementary school. Nice dark brown pour with a small white head. Flavor isnít bad, some roast and chocolate and the aroma is actually pretty good as well, but thereís a definite astringency to the beer thatís very off putting. Regardless though, Iíll keep supporting these (almost) my home town breweries until Newberg gets a brewery of its own. Hahaha, like thatíll ever happen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Black pour, thin beige head. Malty and roasty aroma that is also a bit sour. Sour flavor with malt and yeast. Not a big fan of sour in my beers, especially in a porter. Not seeing this in anyone elseís rating, so maybe this bottle was infected. Will re-rate if I have it again and it tastes different.

A porter, nothing more and nothing less. Less hop but same ABV compared to others. Not a malty smooth finish, but just barley.
