3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber BORN ON 03/06/15. Nose heavy chocolate and dark roast, very nice and rich coffee, grape and plum background, some sugary sweetness but not much, faint vanilla, great espresso overtones, really fat and inviting. Pours sark brown, black in the glass, with a rocky tanned/light brown head, lace. Taste medium bitterness, not really acrid, very earthy, lots of singed and scorched notes, medium fruitiness with plums and red berry, and lots and lots of (pot brewed) coffee. The malt complexity / malt overtones die somewhat in the mouth. Smooth, somewhat soft (this undone a bit by the light acidity) without being velvety. Heavy medium-full body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Black colour with a small creamy tan head.
The aroma is pure coffee... dark roasted coffee... black coffee. And somehow it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s a miracle. The coffee in the flavour is a bit too much for me. I really can’t get anything else but coffee out of this. Coffee.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Really tasty beverage. Coffee is gritty and bitter but thick and the Porter is rich and heavy. It?s a lower abv for the flavor and heft of it. Deep coloring and enjoyable. Nice change. Bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at the Commons Ale House, Santa Monica, 16/04/14.
Black with a good sized tan covering that retains well.
Nose is light roast, touch of coffee, chocolate notes, a little basic and not carrying a huge array of flavours.
Taste comprises roast malt, dark fruit pangs, chcocolate, more coffee than the aroma dictated, hint of red berry fruit.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok porter but lacks depth for the ABV - was expecing more!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours black with a slight tan head. Aroma is very strong coffee. My nose is all over the map: chili? chocolate? both? anise? Med body. Flavor is chocolate. It has all the aspects of chili, including burn. Except it isn’t, because my sensitivity denies the presence of capsaicin. This is really fun stuff!

Definitely one of the better coffee porters I’ve had. The story here is coffee. In aroma and taste. If they said this was a stout I wouldn’t argue otherwise.
