BB: 21.08.2016, so the fresh one. Aroma is roasted malt, some chocolate. Dark brown colour with tall brown-ish head. Taste is slightly metallic at the beginning, but after a while does not bother. Roasted malts, caramel and dark chololate at the finish with alcoholic warming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large bottle from Roots Market Olney. Opaque stout/porter black/brown with tall brown head. Roasted malt aroma with hint of plums. Taste is roast malt with hints of light coffee and a booziness that mimics a whiskey barrel. Though this is not imperial it feels pretty close to being double digit ABV. Nice roast malt finish, I enjoyed this Baltic porter.

Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers tan to light red head, brown color, clear to opaque, good lacing. Aroma: roast on exhale, nutty, stone fruitiness, light molasses. Palate: full body, average to soft carbonation, bitter finish, alcohol warming. Taste: sweet molasses and caramel with nuttiness coming through, going into light fruitiness, with assertive bitterness coming through with decent alcoholic warming. Overall, very nice, very true to style, very good.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pungent smell and a fairly average appearance give way to an interesting smoky flavor with a bit of a spicy bite. Alcohol is present but not too overpowering.
