Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark brown with a dark tan foamy head. Aroma of light chocolate with some citrusy hop? Med body minus. There seems to be diacetyl. I’m sensitive to that. Otherwise chocolate, smooth burnt dark malt, and strongish coffee. The diacetyl is distracting, but not all that terrible. Finishes pleasantly bitter.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Bottle:   Nearly black, huge fluffy beige head, nice lacing.   Looks like a damn stout!   Heavily roasted nose, slight dark chocolate and cocoa, little bit of coffee.   Pretty robust for a Porter.   Nice roasted malt base, very minor lactose and tart aspect after the start.   Slightly dry, a bit chalky.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has this roasty/dusty bakers chocolate sort of finish.   The lingering aspect of this beer sucks my mouth dry.   Good Porter, but if it were a bit sweeter it would be so much better.   Otherwise fairly respectable.

22. Pours jet black with a towering, dense, and creamy dark tan head. Stouty. Head piles up and takes forever to settle; pouring your glass is definitely a multi-step process. Mild roasty nose with a little cocoa and chalk. Creamy medium body, could stand up to a bit more carb but then again it doesn’t suffer for not having it. Very dry and ashy mid palate, almost smoked. Tons of heavy roasted barley in this. Long dry finish. If you like ’em dark and dry, this is a solid porter for you. Fairly easy drinking, though the finish is on the acetic side.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. On the hoppier side for porters, with lightly citric hops, roasted malts, and some medium chocolate sweetness. Pretty good.

Had at Beermongers. Pours a pure black color with a light beige head. The aroma is big mineral roasted malts. The flavor is nice; dark fruit, roasted malts, some chocolate, very mellow but also quite big, drinkable. A nice porter, lots to enjoy.

Dark brown in color, thin tan head. This was a very well made Porter. Tons of chocolate and coffee like flavors. Very impressed. 7 Brides is doing great.

650ml bomber pours a deep black color with a generous light beige head that retains well and leaves some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted grains with some chocolate and mild citrus. Taste is a roasted grainy and light citrus bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with a decent carbonation. This is a nicely done porter that is quite tasty and highly recommended.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured jet black with a tan head. Pretty darn roasty with a ruin body and good malt flavor. Hazelnuts, coffee and ash flavors.

Draught in a flight. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. I got a very quick hint of sweetness up front on the nose that quickly went into some strong roasting notes. At the end, I got some faint bitter elements that reminded me of a Baltic porter, though they were subtle. Taste was quite bitter to me and very dry. Smooth and pleasant.
