Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Thanks to Colin. Opaque black - brown beer, good mid-tan head. Airy palate. Mildly tangy dark malts. Touch of lactose. That’s about it. A pretty dull porter.

Dark brown color with a khaki head. Nice chocolate aroma, plenty of cocoa, and some moderate roast qualities. Plenty of toasted malt and toffee sweetness, maybe a little vanilla. The sweetness on the palate is very well pronounced. Tons of toffee, caramel, and toasted malt. Cocoa, chocolate, and a light bitterness. Mild to moderate roast and just a hint of coffee.

Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sort of chocolate and malt. Near full bodied. Flavor is like dark milk chocolate, with some coffee, and a sort of sour mash burnt malt touch. The sour aspect seems to leave with time, and the coffee comes out more. Finishing dry and a bit earthy (heh heh).
