Closer to a true porter than many of the high gravity, barrel aged porters. It’s most interesting characteristic is its slightly acidic twang.

22oz bomber. Nice aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. The right amount of hops adds complexity to the taste. Very nice mouthfeel, and the finish is mild.

Like the Great Divide Yeti line but softer palate and not as aggressive overall.

Grimm Brothers' Master Thief has a rich chocolate aroma and good head retention. My favorite of the Grimm Brothers' beers I've tried, there are subtle coffee flavors in the taste.
---Cheers until next time!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, well retained, beige head, with some lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body.....nose, malts give roasted notes with coffee, light chocolate, hops add minimal herbs, esters minimal.....taste malts give roasted flavors with coffee, light cocoa, hints of chocolate, hops give light earth tones with moderate bitterness, minimal esters, finish is a combination of roasted malts and hop bitterness....mouth feel light, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds a clean acid tingle. This is a nicely balanced beer, but is too light for a Porter and rather simple overall. BJCP 7/3/12/3/6

Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a near black brown with a tan head leaving some nice spots of lace. Aroma has caramel and chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is of sweet cocoa, bitter espresso, some vanilla and some caramel. Medium bodied. Perhaps a touch thin for a porter. Finishes nicely bittersweet - lot of flavor in this one. A touch thicker would have been excellent!
