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.

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. cathcacr (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2014
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.
