2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a small tan head on it. Nose is very dry and roasty with just a hint at some sourness, and reminds me of a dry stout. Taste is similar with a sour and bitter tone to it. Feels smooth, but it’s a little off putting. I got no chocolate in here.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall, a decent porter. Pours a deep red brown with a tan head. Not much smell, a bit of cream and chocolate. Taste is light, sweet, with some creaminess and peanut butter. Some bitter chocolate in the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this at a recent tasting. This is a forgettable porter. I remember so little about it I had to recheck whether I even drank it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to pint glass. Medium brown with a tan head. Weak aroma, roasty with a metallic tinge. Flavor is really nice though. Milk chocolate and marshmallow notes meld with fresh zesty coffee and a light drying roastiness. Overall sweet but nice. No alcohol presence. Silky mouthfeel that turns a bit more syrupy with warmth but not in a bad way. Nice beer.

Sweet chocolate aroma and flavour, so smooth you can drink it scarily fast. Vary dark brown with a thin head, it’s quite light for a porter but so very tasty. This is the bomb!
