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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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! DMSR

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

AWISLguy (1058) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2013
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!

Steve_0 (2234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with a slight red tint, small tan head and decent lacing. Roasty, earthy, slightly grassy, toasty, malty, bready, and chocolatey aroma. Taste is slightly grainy, earthy, grassy, roasty, light cocoa, a hint of vanilla, and caramel. Medium body with medium-to-high carbonation. Decent porter.

brokensail (9959) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, earthy hops, and a bit of caramel. Chalky, watery, and somewhat buttery. The flavor is watery and bland. Roasted malt, a fair amount of butter, cocoa, earthy hops, coffee, and light sweetness.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate milk), with notes of egg whites, plastic, sour/spoiled vegetable matter, sherry/paper. Flavor is moderately sweet, heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, very unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Holy crap...this thing is BADLY off...smells of spoiling milk and veggies and oxidation. In the mouth it is VERY sour and dirty tasting...horrid and completely undrinkable. A botched (presumably infected) beer.
