Bomber from the brewery. Pours a very dark color with ruby tints and a long lasting khaki head. Lacing is dense. It’s a really good looking beer. The aroma is solid, no complaints here. There are notes of cacao, coffee, leather, and a perfect amount of sweetness. The palate is reasonably full with medium carbonation. This is a tasty, malt-heavy, straightforward porter. Very clean roasty notes of coffee are in the flavor as well with a bittersweet dark chocolate finish. Slight woody bitterness comes through here and there. Quite solid.

Bottle. Deep clear maroon color, huge fluffy beige head. Aroma of light roasted coffee. Taste is smooth coffee, subtle cocoa. Plain.

vulcanmeister (272) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with average frothy light brown head. Moderate roasted coffee dark chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted burnt coffee flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a dark cola with a tan head. Toasted nut nose. Flavors of licorice and a hint of tart cherry. Medium bodied. High carbonation. Bitter roast finish.

aroma faint with slightly/barely smoky accent, decent foam retention after initial pour, flavor is above average for beer though rather bare-minimum for a porter, palate also bare-minimum. might work as a gateway beer to transition the swill-drinkers toward the hard-n-heavy stuff.

bomber purchased in CO and drank in TX. meh; slight roasted malt and cocoa powder in aroma. some of that in taste. thinner porter and just average or maybe slightly below average

ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 12, 2013
This is a very decent porter. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate, dark character, and a thickish palate.

Cantabrian (1131) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle, from a Utah State Liquor Store. I’m a big fan of the Galloway breed, but I think the picture on the label, - with the white lost on the horizon and no black hindlegs to lock it - does not do justice to its uniqueness. And neither does the beer, unfortunately. I wanted it to be extraordinary, but I got no more than a feeble aroma and a faint flavour of roasted malts, with some nutiness and ashes, and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. The beer feels rather watery. And that should not be a reason to have it only in large bottles. I’d love to come back in a few years and re-try a much improved beer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour with a frothy tight tan head. Aroma is roasty, but also something akin to lemon cleaner (but mild). Medium to slightly light palate. Decent, but not great.

ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013
22 oz bottle shared with a friend. The aroma and flavor is roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Medium body with a soft creamy feel and a smooth finish.
