3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brattleboro Food Coop, Brattleboro Vermont bomber: Pours near black with a tan head. Aroma is nice chocolate, robust malts, and hints of coffee. Taste is a bit bitter, but has a nice sweet chocolate undertone, along with enough roast to pack some punch. Very easy to drink, but not at all boring. I liked it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured this a bit cold and so it had a thin tan head. Very black. Let it warm up. Nice chicolaty aroma with a little marshmallow. Tasted nice. Not velvety smooth but rather a hint of dark chocolate.

Bottle from Un Dun and, surprise, it doesnít taste old. Black with lasting tan head and lace. Nice roasted earthy spicy coffee and chocolate aroma with hints of cinnamon and fruit. Mild fruity sweetness with coffee and chocolate and spice and roasted coffee herbal bitterness with some ash and earth. Robust but sessionable. Very good/excellent.

Picked up a bomber on a recent trip to Plymouth NH. A pretty basic style to brew. Tasty and robust. Body on the thin side, which would make this good with food.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ New England Tap house Grill. 2/8/2012. Standard pint glass shows dark brown with little head retention. Nose is a solid amount of roasted malt. Chocolate, roasted grain, hints of vanilla and Earth. Dark chocolate flavor with some coffee, English malts and a light herbal note near the finish. The body is normal for the style and it has a slightly creamy texture. This is best standard release from this brewery. Itís well worth a try if you like porters.
