22 oz bottle. Deep roasted barley aroma with a bit of smoke and chocolate/caramel. Clear dark brown bordering on black with a very small tan head. Super smooth mouth feel and a light body that defies the appearance, average carbonation. This is a great example of a "German Black Beer" fresh from the Pacific Northwest. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty chocolate and caramel aroma. Roasted malty caramel flavor. Has a roasted malty caramel finish with some hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bomber. Pours a dark, mahogany color that shines a translucent crimson color in the light. A minimal, fizzy, light khaki head disappears quickly, leaving zero lacing and a glassy surface. The aroma shows stale black patent malts, cereal grains, hints of cardboard, and sourdough bread. Not good, and totally unnatural. The flavor is even worse, sour yeast overpowering the dark malts, with more stale cereals grains lending a wet cardboard component. Thin, astringent, and under carbonated, the palate is just as much a disappointment as the rest of this beer. Pretty much a drainpour. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle... Poured deep, deep ruby, almost black, with a beige head. Aroma of zesty spices like nutmeg or mild cinnamon and a musty malt presence. Light palate with a subtle sweetness from maybe cocoa, and a mild bitterness maybe from earthy hops before being well rounded with malt notes. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Tap @ Green Dragon. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose is smokey and full of coffee. Taste is full of coffee and malt and its pretty nice.

Smoky chocolate nose. Blackish brown, with medium head. Chocolate smoke sweetness, with mild hop bitterness. Fizzy, light to medium body, semi-clean finish. This seemed like a "Porter Light", interesting and refreshing dark beer. ebowman (11) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2008
On tap at Palace Kitchen in Seattle, WA - Pours very dark/black wthout much head. Aroma of cola/caramel. The taste itself is unremarkable and leaves a lot to be desired given the nice aroma. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Black with a viscous brown head. Yeasty, dry, black malt aroma. Medium body. Creamy smooth dark malt flavors are mildly sweet with a taste of earthy molasses. Very little if any bitterness in the finish. Glug glug burp burp best describes this beers drinkability. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Bomber from Sondra. Blackish color with ruby translucence. Beige head that left quickly. Aromas of dark roasted malt and perhaps coffee and chocolate notes. Near medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour dark roast malt. Finish is rather balanced. Fairly refreshing. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
Dark bronwy red beer with decent head. Aroma is toasty and malty with a touch of caramel. Beer is thin roasty with a touch of choclate and smoke at the finish. Good easy drinker.
