This beer was pretty smooth its pours well with a light frothy head, I didn't get the chocolate notes as much as the hazelnut but it didn't detract from taste.

Pretty solid porter...mahogany bordering ebony with a medium sized cashew foam. Cocoa, caramel, toasted nuts, roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla. Flavorful, particularly given the lower ABV. Heretic has a proven track record and this one works as well. Solid.

Smell is chocolate and nuts, like a candy bar. Tastes like a roasty porter with hints of chocolate and hazelnut in the aftertaste. Medium body, lively carbonation, and mild foam.

Bomber from Berkeley Bowl. Pours out near black. Mocha head which dissipates quickly, nice lacing. Lots of toasted hazelnut in the aroma. Some notes of molasses, chocolate with a slight smoky dryness. The hazelnut was a bit too toasted for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had via facebook chat. A deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. The aroma is sweetish. Milk chocolate, hazelnut that you would add to your coffee, and coffee. I taste all of the above along with vanilla, fruit, and wood. Lactic. Just a little bitterness late. I like the complexity here. And the smooth rich feel. This one was in my wheelhouse and I liked it.
