3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate - medium chocolate. Med body plus a little. Frothy carb. Flavor is chocolate over smooth, but ashy, burnt malt. Plus I think there’s a definite smoke aspect. Smooth. Nearly dry. Mildly bitter. Still think smoked chocolate is the finish. Pretty decent stuff. I like it more than most porters.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy tannish head, sparce lacing.   Strong toasted malts, nearly roasty, slightly sweet, a bit of coffee with lots of cream.   Not a big example on the tongue.   Thin roastiness on the tongue, a bit of coffee with lots of cream and a touch of sugar.   Little hop, pale malts overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... leaning on the thin side tho.   Pretty boring example overall, not robust, comes across as a an Irish Ale with a smidgen of Porter.   At least based on least years example.   ZZZZZZzzzzz.....

Draft at Indigo. Pours a grainy, murky black with a scant tan filmy head. Dark bitter chocolate nose. Creamy medium body, decent carb. Bitter chocolate mid palate with a mild roasty finish. Kind of a one trick pony.

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a deep brown color with some mahogany, a beige head. A light nose of cocoa and toast. A pretty mellow porter with caramel, toast, light chocolate, maybe some hop bitterness. Very light. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark roasted grains and light bittersweet chocolate on the nose. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. The flavor is that of roasted husky grains, a little coffee, and dark bittersweet chocolate. Dry roasty finish. Somewhat one dimensional but as usual well done. Good drinkability.

Dark brownish-red pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor is very similar with the addition of some grass character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
