Dark brown with off white head. Interesting aroma with a touch of stink on it. The taste is a little better with some chocolate malt coming through with some bitterness on the back end. Decent, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from tap to glass. Brown hue with creamy off white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is chocolate, straw, faint roast. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking with a medium light body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry with a slight roasted finish. Overall this beer is a bit lacking in depth and complexity.

Very dark brown with a half in ch of dense tan head. Aroma is chocolate and nuts, and taste is the same, with rich coffee notes. It’s a touch sweet, but clean enough to be drinkable.$1.5/12oz

Bomber from Roth’s. 6.2%. Just about pitch black in color. Lightly roasted nose, with a bit of bitter coffee and anise. Dry bitter roastiness. Some anise and some more roasty coffee. A little bit of milk sugar as well. Drinkable porter.

(Can) Smooth, thin, fairly bitter, and lots of dark bitterness. Not enough dark rich sweetness. I kind of like it, but at the same time feel like it’s missing so much body. Hmm.

Bottle. Pours hazy, dark brown with tan head. Aroma is roasty, bitter chocolate, coffee. Taste is medium-bodied, very thin for the style, smooth, sweet with bitter finish. Overall, not too much going on.
