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!

I paired this porter with a piece of chocolate cake , actually compatible . The color is dark but when held up against the light revealed a nice dark burgundy , Man I wish I had a car that color , dark at a certain angle and dark burgundy in another ,cool. in the nose believe it or not I note a barnyard scent with molasses and a hint of wet grass. In the flavor dark bitter chocolate and bread, " must of been the cake" !.

Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is chocolate and roast with hints of vanilla and coffee. Clear brown with a medium light tan head. Flavor is roasty coffee, chocolate, and hints of bitterness. Nice but nothing spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
brown, excellent clarity and a surface etched with light dirty cream foam. Nose is almost spicy with malts and some hops (noble) with a bit of cocoa, but no vanilla. Taste has roasted malts with a bit of sweet rye and some cheap base malt oxidation - a truly uneventful mouthful. Thin with sharp, yet fleeting carb and an off dry finish. Meh.

Good chocolate and vanilla presence, mouthfeel is creamy and aftertaste is a light dark chocolate bitterness. However aroma is boozy as is the taste a bit. I've had better chocolate porters but not too bad.

Bottle. Pours clear ruby black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashtray, cocoa. Flavor is much the same, medium sweet with a definite milk-chocolate overtone touch of vanilla, light bitterness, not enough to counteract the sweetness fully. A bit artificial tasting, actually. Medium body. Definitely drinkable, but nothing special here.

Bottle. Deep brown. Thin, off-white head. Aroma is light for a porter. Taste is surprisingly strong alcohol taste.

The aroma is less than what is expected for the quality. I would like a darker hue for what can be considered an imperial. Taste is balanced and clean. Very pleasant to the palate. Overall a nice brew.
