Bomber from Mr. A’s in Palatine, so could have some age. Pours a very dark brown with a bit of a tan head. Some dark chocolate, cocoa powder, more caramelly through the glass. The end adds rum raisin. More sweet than bitter. 13.8

Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Forest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 Pours black with light beige head. Smooth and creamy, roasty but not harsh. A little sweet liquorice and chocolate but a tiny bit thin even though its 8%. Its pretty decent but I wouldn’t rush out to seek it again. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

daje (2556) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Black body with a low dark brown head. Roasty aroma with soapy and fruity hop notes, cocoa and a subtle sourness. Taste is quite fruity for a porter, nothing wrong there, plum, orange, raisin, with a good roasty malt bitterness and dark chocolate. Massive in taste. Sweet chocolate aftertaste rounds it off with hints of coffe, a little disappointed with the finish as the taste promised so much more, though it doesn’t break the beer, it’s quite delicious.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Un bomber partagé par Patrick. Une bière que je trouve mince et aqueuse. Elle manque de tonus et a un léger goût de poussière. Décevant.

SlovakSniper (3229) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
La robe presque noire montre un col brun qui gagne le respect. Des petits morceaux de mousse restent collés sur mon verre. Le nez montre des parfums de chocolat, de petits fruits ronds et de café. C’est riche sans être explosif. En bouche, les saveurs mentionnées ci-haut montrent les signes d’un alcool poussé et la force d’une certaine acidité. Plutôt moche sans être catastrophique. Au palais, il me semble que le liquide est en manque de corps et de tout. En finale, l’amertume des grains rôtis est frappante et pas si plaisante que ça.

Sehr dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit bräunlichem Schaum, der aber sehe schnell komplett verschwindet. Geruch röstmalzig, Kaffee, Holz, reife Früchte. Geschmack röstmalzig, Vanille, Kaffee, leicht holzig, alkoholisch, dunkle Früchte.

Beese (1971) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottled from GBBF 2013, sampled at Fergus’ tasting on 26 July. Poured a thick, dense black, with a thin beige head. Aroma of molasses, liquorice and meaty notes. Dark malt flavours, with some coffee and dried fruit. Full mouth feel. Finish was espresso, liquorice and slight Oxo.

Bottle at the Watford tasting 26/07/14. Aroma is tart fruit , some ashy roast, dried fruits. Nice rich ruby red coloured pour with a lasting thin cream coloured head. Flavour is dried fruits, woods, oak, vanilla.. Warming alcohol. Palate is slightly chalky and tangy on the tongue. Some rough round the edges. Nice brew.
