BadAprilia1000 (274) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Pours as dark a black as Iíve ever seen with a small dark brown head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma isnít very large, some sweetness and a faint liquorice. Taste is very good, quite subtle and very well balanced. Begins with a flavor similar to the liquorice aroma but without the sweetness, then turns into a very nice beery maltiness from the beer being a porter, and finishes with a perfectly not overpowering smokey malt flavor that is full bodied and leaves you wanting another sip. Very impressive beer

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Dark pour with a light tan head, good lacing. Bready aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a good medium thick mouthfeel that melts into a smokiness that is not overwhelming. Finishes slightly bitter.

ExpendableHero (755) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Very nice. Dark brown, almost black, beer with a thick, off-white head. Strong aromas of peat, and dark coffee. Tastes of dark chocolate/coffee, mixed with roasted barley, and subtle smokiness. This beer is sweeter than other smoked beers, but it works. Bittersweet finish, velvety smooth. Very enjoyable.

nickd717 (3509) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bomber from Chevy Chase in DC. Very dark brown color with a small light tan head. Smoky and roasty aroma with a chocolatey earthiness. The flavor has a medium level of smoke, well-balanced with a roasty porter/stout base. Medium-plus bodied with medium-low carbonation. Pretty solid smoked porter.

strongpieman (1502) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Bomber. Great porter. The smoked aroma is mild and covered by chocolate but really comes out in the taste / swallow. Full body, smooth, -- excellent palate. Iím not a huge fan of smoked styles so I look forward to trying the porter without, if available.

smith4498 (3025) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of dark fruits, sugar and a hint of smoke. Not much smoke flavor. Raisin and sugar flavors with some roasted malts. Medium body with minimal carbonation. A nice porter thatís a bit too sweet for me.
