2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: from tap at Sound Brewery Tasting Room.
Aroma: light, coffee aroma.
Appearance: small, light brown, initial head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Clear, flat, reddish brown body.
Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and finish. Long duration.
Palate: medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation.
Overall: seemed too acidic and fizzy for a porter, but I’d try it again since the other beers were so good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Amber hued clear dark brown, mostly fading tan foam. Darker roast aroma, some chocolate. Roasty malty taste, bittersweet chocolate, some coffee bean, mild Noble influence. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Very well put together, tasty and easy to pound. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: Incredibly delicious porter. Very balanced, too. Nice and velvety texture. Lots of chocolate throughout, along with a bit of char and some light roast. Perfect amount of milk-like sweetness -- just a touch to soften the hop bitterness. Fantastic background hints of tobacco, toast and vanilla. One of the best porters I’ve had in a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black as night with a micro head that stayed cloudy to the bottom, great lacing. The taste is roasted coffee, sweet chocolate and some citrus bitterness. A little thin and not as smooth and creamy as I’d like. I think this is a bit Baltic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost completely opaque black with a thick beige head. Tons of lacing blotches. The aroma is rich and roasty with light caramel and vanilla notes. A bit sweet with chocolate notes and light toasted notes. The finish has mild mannered hops with a bit of citrus bitterness and floral notes. A nice robust porter

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours a deep black color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some dark fruits. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that satisfies the palate. A very satisfactory porter which is sure to please most beer lovers taste buds.

Red brown pour slight tan head. Aroma of soil, lactic acid, cream, horse grain, coffee. Tastes really grainy wheat toasted acid. Watery palate. Could use more body. Seems like a authentic light bodied vintage porter.
