Bomber from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours very dark brown with a light brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma - HELLO COFFEE! Aroma has in your face coffee, with chocolate, roasted maltiness and faint nuts. Lovely. Taste has bitter expresso beans, roast and faint sweet chocolate. Slightly rough. Finishes mostly coffee bitter with some sweetness under. This is a nice porter!

Bottle for my birthday eve 2014 with the inlaws. Pours a deep black with slight caramel head. Aroma is coffee for sure. Taste is more coffee but very thin, slight vanilla, some caramel but mostly just loads of coffee.

Butters (3746) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Sampled in my hotel room at the Hilton Gardens in Durham with a very special friend :) Very dark near black pour with good creamy head. Big nose of coffee is evident from the moment you crack it open. Flavors of cocoa and roast malts and espresso. Big smooth creamy body is rather silky on the palate. Pretty good.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Dark chocolate and espresso aromas. Soft and dry with dark chocolate and expresso upfront turning to resin in the lasting finish.

Bomber thanks to Jeff. This would be a nice breakfast beer. Pours a pitch black color with a medium, though quickly dissipating brown head. A huge coffee nose. The flavor is rich milky coffee, roast, charred wood, molasses, some dark fruit. Really good. Tastes bigger than 6%. Smooth. A lot of coffee, but it works well. There’s a bit of sour roast in this that’s awesome.

22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with an off white head. Nice coffee aromas, vanilla, chocolate and roast, Coffee more present in the aromas and somewhat of a let down in the tastes.

There isn’t a better beer out there. If you like a good porter with a bit of coffee overtone, you’ve found beer nirvana. From the first sniff to the long, smooth aftertaste, it would be hard to criticize this brew. It pairs well with any substantial meat dish and is also good as a base for cooking stews and slow cook beef dishes.
