3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle at Columbus tasting 8 - Poured dark brownwith not much head at all. Aromas of slight roast and chocolate. Flavor falls right in line with the aroma. The shortcoming of this brew is the watery palate. Just not enough malt there to support it in my opinion. On the bottle it says it is Scary Good... I think it was Scary average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a darker brown with a beige ring of foam. Aroma has notes of vanilla, nuts, and dark chocolate. Tastes mildly sweet and a little roast. Not my thing, I guess.

Had this on Nitro as NighTroll Porter. Black pour with the normal nitro look. Aroma is nice and roasty with some citrus in there as well. Taste of sweet cream and roast malt. Very mild beer, but good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a translucent blackish brown. Scant and fading tan head. Aroma of molasses, cardboard and chocolate. Medium-to-light body with medium carbonation. The taste is roasty toasty coffee. Crisp and slightly grainy finish. This beer avoids being watery, but I’m not picking up on the ’chewy’ quality that the brewer claims.
