Reid (1906) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bomber, Capital Market Salem. Nice looking deep dark brown ale with a huge and lovely frithy/creamy tight tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee type malts,dark 70% Cacoa choclate! Flavour as above but with some really nice peppery and fruity undertones. Palate I rather enjoyed, its not a thick chewy porter but more drinkable even light( not a bad thing) more in the English style than the American porters.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2009
22 oz bottle from my local grocery. Pours out dark brown with a nice tan head and some bubbles and light lacing. Nice aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, light coffee. Very nice flavor involving chocolate, light coffee, an earthy hop bite and some very light fruit. Medium bodied with a solid finish. I will likely be drinking more of these as it’s tasty and fairly inexpensive.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - APR 27, 2009
Subtle aroma, lovely dark appearance with not much head retention, nice roasted flavor but not over whelming. Decent level of carbonation. Purchased via a growler filling and man does it look epic with this dark brew in it.
