Serving: from bottle--purchased at Made in Oregon.
Aroma: light pumpernickel and vanilla aroma.
Appearance: average-sized, creamy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark reddish-brown body.
Taste: light acidic initial flavor and moderately sweet toasted bread and vanilla finish with long duration.
Palate: medium-to heavy body with oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: this is an outstanding porter. Great aroma with a flavor to match. I’d like to try it from the tap.

Bomber in Portland. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate, vanilla and a bit of coffee. Pours black with a thin light brown head with decent retention and some lacing. Starts with good roasted malt flavors with chocolate sweetness added in. Finishes really smooth with a nice bit of vanilla and a touch of coffee. Nice vanilla porter.

From bottle. Black with tan head. Aroma of dark toasty malts, chocolate, and hint of vanilla. Vanilla is much more prevalent in the flavor, fitting nicely with the dark chocolate and roastiness. Finishes sweet and lingers on the palate.

Not too portery in taste. The initial taste is vanilla, the finish is chocolate. Now if they can add strawberry, it would be a 4.5

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. It’s very smooth. Almost creamy in texture. It approaches sweet, but it seems slightly on the bitter side. Clearly nothing objectionable here, and it’s something of a tasty treat.
