Bomber from Weaver Street Market, Southern Village, Chapel Hill, NC
Ar: Big coffee and chocolate flavors on the nose. Very inviting aroma.
Ap: Pours a deep dark brown with a slight ruby hue when held to the light. 1" frothy cinnamon head leaves great lace and sticks around for some time.
T: Flavors follow suit of the aroma. Touch of toffee. Lots of good bitter chocolate and the finish is freshly brewed coffee. Amply hopped finish.
P: Medium-thick body. Moderately carbonated.
O: Favorite of Foothills’ offerings, this is a very good, straightforward porter.
12oz bottle @ home. Clearvdark reddish brown pour with a minimal beige head. Nose is very roasty- coffee and chocolate. Flavors also heavy roast coffee, cocoa, malt, some bitterness for good measure. Medium bodied, lingering dry finish. Excellent porter. rboozer (7) - - JUL 15, 2017 does not count

This was a little thin in the glass for me. Again I’m always comparing to favourites but it was just ok for me. I picked up on the chocolate and toffee back ground tastes which was a positive but a major negative for me on this one was that it made me feel completely bloated which would mean I wouldn’t drink it again. other stouts I’ve had don’t do this to me ibrubeer (385) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Draft @ Norfolk Tap Room. Faint roasty aroma. Dark color with maybe a slight ruby hue, thin beige head with slight lacing. Bittersweet chocolate notes at first with a little roast, followed by a little sweetness. Med body, appropriate for porter. Overall, a very nice porter.

A lovely sweet dark beer, thick head and very drinkable flavor profile. I like this one a lot. jb (3255) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Pretty standard porter, drinkable, but I can no longer come up with coherent new things to say about porters. Bottle from Bob. Thanks Bob! Ron (3964) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle from Bob. It pours very dark brown with a nice tan head. The aroma is pretty rich with cocoa, coffee and hard roasted malt. The flavor is bitter dark chocolate, toast and coffee. It has a balanced bitter, roasted finish. Rich, full body with a touch of English yeast to go with the strong American malt and hop profile. raymow (1668) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2016
on tap at Crafty’s in Northeast Phila - nice chocolatey aroma and flavor. Nice dark color. Pretty good. HighlanderOne (1332) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Poured from bottle.
Aroma of chocolate ice cream.
Appearance is stout black with lacing.
Tasting cocoa, cola, licorice, coffee/toffee, caramel. a trace of hops.
Palate is fairly balanced, a bit sour at the end. .
Overall, a good choice for porter. Try the barrel aged one if you can.
