2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small creamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty and a touch woody. The flavor was dry, bitter and roasty with hints of vanilla, wood and coffee. Medium length dry bitter finish with lingering coffee and vanilla. Medium body. Fairly blah.

Very average thin porter with light roast and subtle sweet dark fruits and a bit of milk chocolate. Very light and thin but not bad.

Bottle generously shared by someone on the the GABF bus. Pours a medium porter brown with an off-white head. Nose is roasted malts, some cocoa, chocolate, and some caramel. Flavor follows the nose with some dryness in the finish from the yeast. Light to medium in body and lingering cocoa and yeast in the finish.

Deep mahogany color with a lasting thin beige head. Roasted grain and caramel nose. Nice roasted grain flavor with some bitter chocolate, burnt toast and caramel sweetness. Some hop bitterness under the whole thing. A little thin but tasty.

Roasted grain aroma and flavor; getting some coffee, including a little acidity. Some caramel character, and some biscuit flavor... a little smoky, maybe? Moderate bitterness.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Up front roast in the nose, dark breast notes and cocoa powder. Flavor is toasty, a hint of coffee and a finish that was lightly hoppy.

Bomber. Poured medium-deep brown with a creamy, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up well-roasted, near-burnt black malts with lesser baker’s chocolate and vanilla.. soft overall. The flavor found toasty black malts and chocolate.. dry, earthy bitterness around.. finished roasty and grainy. Light-medium bodied and very dry on the palate.. OK feel and flow, but I wanted a little more substance and character.

bomber rec’d in trade from gription 79 as part of unclerudy’s locals swap. slight aroma of porter stuffs including caramel; dark pour; med. carbonation and thin palate. caramel in flavor is the most prevalent but not overpowering; Easy to drink with th 4% alcohol - not that flavorable but goes down easy
