bomber - clear, cola brown with thin, off-white head; fresh nutty aromas with bitter coffee and mild roast; full bodied and almost creamy; lovely texture and mouthfeel; not the most flavorful porter by any means, but very solid with that nice fresh roast and nutty flavors; touch of sweetness in the end

Coffee roast aroma. Dark coloured smooth on the palate and fruity with a little dryness and bitterness in a crisp and bitter coffee finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Out of a bottle at Collins Pub. Aromas of smoke and toasted malt. Pours black with barely any lace. But the taste--odd. Tastes of red fruits, nearly like red wine, and very vinegar like, with some bitter coffee beneath. Almost like they tried to make a sour porter.

on tap at collins for porter weekend. Pour was inpeneterable black color. Aroma was like a cold iced latte, notes of cocoa and coffee, but muted. Taste was bizarre, tart, vinegar, sour like, blended with the bitter coffee. Palate was thin.

Bottle, thanks to danielcurtis81 for sharing on his wedding week. Pours black with a brown edge and no head. Nose has coffee and some roasted malt with chocolate. Taste is bitter roasted malt and coffee, a little sour and light/lacking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle brought back from the brewery by good my friend Leems. Pours black as pitch with a decent tan head that is gone quick. Aroma is largely roast, some coffee, chocolate and maybe even some raisins or plums. Flavor is mostly roasted coffee/chocolate, but with light hints of caramel and vanilla. Perhaps a little lighter in mouth than I would prefer, but still a very tasty brew. I would like to try more from this brewery.
