4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich and malty with deep roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors backed by a blast of fresh, piney hops and a hint of fireplace smoke. Smooth and lightly carbonated with the abv covered well, this lingers on a long, bitter black coffee note.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of roasted coffee and dark chocolate, though the flavor was a little better. The body was great...medium bodied and full flavored while not really showing the abv. The cocoa on the palate was wonderful...bitter and only slightly sweet, with a nice interplay between the malts, the cocoa, and the coffee. Hope to see this again."

Draft sample at the brewery. Pours about like a porter. Aroma is nice roasted malt and milk chocolate. Rich flavor reminiscent of hot chocolate. Nice.

Really nice dark brown. Intense coffee ok the nose, but so much other than expected. The coffee does well with the general mellowness of the brown ale. One of the best browns ive ever had.

Love port brewing, great coffee notes from this smooth brown ale. Thick chocolaty head that stays for the full glass

I’d expect they are right, it probably is delicious washing down a hearty breakfast with. Good with a barbeque, too. Rich roasted malts, dark coffee, chocolate, earth, oak. The aroma has a touch of something sweet...stone fruits perhaps. Totally brown ale, imperial style. Very nice

Delicious beer courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Man can Port Brewing do any wrong other than not distributing to Pittsburgh? Aroma was ok. Coffee and alcohol.Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan rin for a head. Taste was a lot better than the aroma let on. Deep dark chocolate, coffee and notes of roasted malt in the finish. Nice carbonation. Delicious beer.

Bomber. Talk about a brown ale that finally has some flavor/character! Cocoay roasty coffee aroma, hints of sweet malts. I get a old coffee and bitter chocolate in the mid-palate, blended perfectly. Hints at roasty malts in the finish, a tiny hop profile built in there as well. Coffee lingers a bit on the finish. Good stuff!
