Pours dark red, almost black color with a medium sized off-white head. Moderately fruity aroma, some hops, caramel and some dark malts too. Slightly sourish taste, ripe fruit notes, some caramel malts and cocoa. This doesn’t feel to be at a mint condition, slightly sour. A disappointment.

Aroma is somewhat fruity with hay and cocoa. Flavour has salty licorice, hay, some coffee and slight milky acidicness. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Decent but nothing special, the lactic tones disturb me a bit.

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of roasty malts, chocolate, cocoa, hints of syrup, hops and caramel. Taste is roasty, hoppy and robust with some maltiness, chocolate, cocoa and hints of syrup. Finish is smooth, slick and slightly roasty with hints of chocolate and cocoa. Pretty smooth and balanced porter.
22 oz bottle shared with friends. Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate toffee. Tastes of coffee, roast, dark chocolate, bits of vanilla. Medium body with a dry finish. chinchill (4939) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at The Brass Tap (Tampa).
Opaque and essentially black in the glass. Excellent, sticky lacing.
Flavor is about mid-way between Amer. Porter (with extra hops) and Baltic Porter. Black coffee in the finish and aftertaste, with a touch of smoke. Mildly bitter, increasing into the aftertaste.
O: a fine porter.

Excellent porter. Pours a very very dark brown with minimal head and lacing. Aromas and flavors of cocoa, charred wood and caramel. Slightly bitter finish. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - JAN 26, 2015
bottle. smells of light roast and a bit of caramel. tastes of bakers chocolate, giving way to caramel. coffee hints in the finish with a nice chalky mouthfeel that just feels right lingering with the flavors. although i am a big fan of sweet chocolate outsidie of a glass of beer, i prefer what is going on here when discussing what’s in my glass. that not very sweet chocolate really compliments the other flavors. the caramel comes out with stronger coffee notes as it warms too. just what i was hoping for.

Pours a jet black with almost no head. Taste is fizzier than I would have expected and a touch off putting. The flavor is smooth and balance. Nice tobacco and boot leather body. rxeight (3046) - Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bomber bottled 11/24/14. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma is roast. Bittersweet chocolate chips. Slight mocha coffee. Lighter body for a dark beer. Decent for a light porter. radagast83 (8019) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Can brought back from Florida by my girlfriend. Poured from the 12oz can with a very dark brown body and a small tan head. Aroma was some chocolate notes, some sweet bittersweet notes, some burnt character. An interesting flavor, not sure if I dug it as much as I was hoping.
