If a troll requests a pint of porter, you’d better have a good, big one to offer. Troll Porter fits that bill. Black, round and complex, with mocha and chocolate overtones and a fine hop profile. Very tasty brew. 6.6% ABV 31 IBUs Malts: 2-Row Pale ~ Crystal 75L & 120L ~ Munich ~ Special Roast ~ Chocolate ~ Carafa III ~ Torrefied Wheat Hops: Apollo ~ East Kent Goldings Original Gravity: 16.5° Plato

<i>Bottle, #403</i>   Black pour with minimal head. Slightly roasted aroma with a bit of earthyness. Flavor follows with a hop bite. Decent porter.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Average, in nearly every sense of the word. I’ll give it a slight bump in flavor (which is, I guess, what counts the most) but nothing would make me want to purchase this again. The beer exhibits a sweet caramel nose, roasted malt flavor, and bitter chocolate finish. Inexpensive offering that I might come back to in a pinch.

Bottle: Near black pour with a very small brown head. Faint aroma of roastiness and coffee. Flavor is simple and straightforward. A blend of roast, chocolate, and coffee. Well balanced. A basic offering within the style, but well done. Probably will fly below the radar - it’s like a stealth bomber for the price of a mere fighter plane.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Courtesy of Acertain. The aroma is detergent-esque with sharp chocolate notes, lactose sugar and mild roast. The body is black and holds a thin tan head. Fore is roasty, with dark fruit and some very noticeable soapy/detergent notes. Nice mouthfeel, but on the whole not really feeling this one due to the off flavors.

Bomber from Bottle Trek. Dark brown/black color that shows orange glints at edges. Aroma is dark roasted malt with touches of berry and chocolate. Rather thin in body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is dark roasted malt and chocolate with some herbal hoppy bitter. Pretty good drink.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Poured a dark, brown-black oily body with a small tan head. Mildly watery mouthfeel. Kind of metallic and roasty. Grassy and chocolaty. Kinda dull, but not bad.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Deep black this has a rich espresso/coffee flavor to it and is quite thick, even for a porter. Bitters come through on the taste.

riversideAK (5827) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2008
Dark brown with a chalky roast in the aroma. A touch earthy. Flavors of metallic roast, chalk, earth, and dirt. Actually kind of unpleasant, but gets a bit better as it warms. Less metallic and chalky, and more roasty with nice sweetness.

Looked great and smelled pretty good, but I was confused by the taste. Not much to it with a slightly sour/metallic aftertaste. Possibly I got a bad bottle. Will visit Hale’s to find out what’s what an re-rate.
