Draft 8 oz. "mini-shaker" at 3Fs. Thin but noticeably brown head atop a porter to stout dark body. A sharp coffee smell I havenít found in the Baltic strain of porter before. Flavor is strong with coffee hard candies, but still a bit of lager cleanness. Threads of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Canít say it goes down easy; I had to wrestle it a little. But when it finally yields, it does so nicely.

AWISLguy (1058) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bomber from Rayans, with a 3/4/14 bottle date. Pours cola colored with an off-tan head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has chocolate and caramel, with chiles and coffee. Taste is of bakers chocolate, caramel, some roast and lightly spicy chiles. Full bodied and a bit hot. Finishes bittersweet with some length. Tasty, solid brew, with an interesting angle from the chiles. Wonder what some aging would have done.

10oz on tap at Neonís. $7, or $6 during their Happy Hour. Pitch-black color. Good thin light brown head.- Leaves great, thicker lace. Huge big roast malt aroma up front. Awesome, big earthy hop character. Dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, hint of coffee. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Great chewiness. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Just a very light mildly spicy hoppy bite in the ned, a good long roasty earthy hoppy finish. Hint of smoke. Fantastic, hoppy baltic porter. Very enjoyable. Was tempted to give a way higher score throughout the first part of my pour, but this doesnít get any better in the second half... A little more sweetness comes out as it warms up, ended up lowering Taste from 8 to 7 by the end. A very enjoyable experience overall, though. A pleasure to get the opportunity to finally try this (Neonís had been teasing about it for a week). I was wondering if this was a cellared keg or what, but this tastes pretty fresh (quite hoppy)

Bomber shared with SHERM1016....pours dark dark brown with red hue. Thin head. Nose and taste is chocolate / espresso. Appropriate mouth feel for a porter with that ídirtyí feel that differentiates porters and stout. Very tasty.

22oz bottle shared by dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a deep, dark brown color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is roasty, coffee, chocolate. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is bittersweet, coffee, chocolate, a little nutty, a little smokey, with a bitter coffee finish. Very nice.

1 year old and aged nicely. Aroma is Chocolate and Roast. Head is light tan that dissipates rapidly. Taste is sweeter than a year ago and I think better. I get chocolate, malt, caramel, and a tad of smoke. Palate is excellent being slightly viscous. Overall one of my favorites from 3 Floyds.
