Black body. Some head and lacing. Cocoa nesquick aroma. Coffee crisp. The flavour falls a bit flat and palate a bit thin. Earthy. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I purchased this bottle from Breeze In, Juneau, Alaska and am reviewing this from notes.
I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one and a half fingered white to off white foamy head that rises a bit and then dies leaving a nice milky to creamy looking thick foamy lacing.
The smell was nice and roasty coffee to having a decent light chocolate settling over the aroma.
The taste was bitter to roasty and ended up leaving a decent roasty bitter coffee to chocolate aftertaste with a dry bitter finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with a decent harsh carbonation settling over the mouth and tongue as well as indicating a somewhat decent sessionability about it.
Overall, I say this is a good American Porter well worthy of having again.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is roasty with a fair amount of coffee and just a hint of chocolate to it. Taste is actually a little bitter, and very slightly sour. Has some baltic porter characteristics, though not enough to represent that style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is mostly roasted malt and burnt wood, really nice.
The flavor is balanced and deep, roasted malt, burnt malt, charred wood, and mild bitter finish.
The texture is smooth with low to moderate carbonation.
An outstanding porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, courtesy of Eyrish. Hueless darkest brown, foamy mocha head slowly settles and mostly lasts. Dark roasted malt aroma, a hint of chocolate. Bittersweet roasted chocolate malt taste, some coffee bean. Average carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. It is "smooth and well balanced" as stated, but still: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Central City Liquor Store in Surrey. Almost black in color with a tan head and sweet chocolate on the nose. The malts are way up front and a distinctive chocolate note there as well.. The hops are well hidden. Not complex, but a nice porter all the same.
