3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Harry & David in Medford, OR. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is vanilla and what seems to be smoke. Med body. Flavor is vanilla, coffee and a little smoke. Hint of chocolate. Itís very smooth. Almost creamy in texture. It approaches sweet, but it seems slightly on the bitter side. Clearly nothing objectionable here, and itís something of a tasty treat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate foamy tannish head, fairly nice lacing.   Fake vanilla nose, major honeycomb cereal like aroma.   Soft roastiness.   Seems like a light porter, with this artificial vanilla like sweetness that is actually more like a kids cereal.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Honeycomb like vanilla flavors on the exit, little roastiness is available on the exit.   Not a big Porter, very light, with a fake vanilla like flavor.   Reminds me a bunch of the Coeur díAlene Vanilla Porter, fake and not big enough.   Meh...
