Poured a very dark mahogany with not much of a head. Some nice malty notes in the nose including chocolate, coffee and toasted nuts. Very nice taste with a medium mouthfeel and dry finish. Overall very good Porter. Will try and re-rate later when I’m not so tired and don’t find myself at a loss for words.

February 2012. From bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate and spice aromas. Slightly sweet at first, but finished bitter. A bit on the lighter side.

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.

Beerenberger (1364) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Aroma is malt forward with notes of chocolate and roasted malts. Pours an almost black with a dark tan head and excellent lacing. After the nose, the taste was underwhelming. A mild roasted taste and then a coffee finish and aftertaste. Medium-light bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, bland, almost no tastevat all…6will not buy again.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear light brown, ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose is nice, milk chocolate, toasty, light roast, cream. Taste of watery chocolate, stale coffee, paper, light body, roast.

Bottle.

A somewhat underwhelming porter, cocoa powder but no spark. Ninkasi usually does better than this.

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.

pours a dark brown with a medium size khaki head and very good lacing. smell is faint, cocoa, malt, and a little nutty. taste is dry yet creamy, bakers chocolate, malt, and a few hops. ends smooth with a touch of sourness.

Bottle: Dark brown with a thin head. The description of bittersweet chocolate is very accurate, plus a little roast and yeast. Consistent through the flavor too. Good chocolate to bittersweet to roast ratio. Moderate in intensity and I found this rather easy to cruise through the whole bottle solo.

Dark black. Tastes like chocolate milk...with a hint of hops. Creamy. Amazing porter.

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.
