COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Definitely not your Dad’s Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that’s as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

Thanks to Brewfiend! Black color with no head. Nice, bitter roast aroma. The taste is an incredible balance between bitter hop and malt vs sweet malt. A little vanilla. I would not guess that this was bourbon aged at all. Excellent!

Bottle. Pours a very thick brown with a thin chocolaty head. The aroma has vanilla, roasted malt and a port like alcohol quality. The flavor is that of a beer made with coffee and Kahlua. A very thick and meaty brew.

Had on tap at City Beer in SF. A really nice, dark, complex brew. Seems like a very strong porter to me. A very roasty flavor but plenty of strength and just a wonderful, fruity flavor overall.

7/12/07. Bomber. 2007 vintage. Dark deep brown with a bronw head. Malty, prune and roasted coffee aroma. Nice sharp taste with better mouthfeel than older viscosity. Chocolate and roast taste. I think that Tommee has done an excellent job of mixing his beer in the tradition of Olde Suffolk Ale with the end product being better than the separate parts.

Bottle. Pours black with a quick dissipating brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, and dark fruits. Flavor has some light coffee and chocolate taste. Much like a good Imp Stout in my opinion.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 8, 2007
(22 oz. bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors, cellared for 8 mos. after purchase) Tasty and complex...Pours very dark brown, looks opaque, 1/4" of tan head that settles to a thin lasting layer. Aroma of molasses, raisins, dark fruits, rum, coffee and chocolate. Yum. Mouthfeel thick and smooth. Nice fine rings of weepy lacing. Flavor is dark fruits, molasses, coffee roast and dark chocolate. Alcohol is not well-hidden but doesn’t detract too much. Medium-bitter coffee finish. This is very much like an Imp Stout, perhaps without the port-like flavors. Good.
