Tap at Gigantic, PDX, 22/05/13.
Very dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head.
Nose is roast malt, biscuit, dark toffee.
Taste carries a good roast malt bite, molasses, a touch of chocolate.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitter roast in the finish.
Solid enough porter. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a deep dark amber brown win a small beige head. Aroma is very stereotypical of a porter, with light roasted malt, dry malts. Flavour of dry roasted malts, toasted malts, and dry cocoa. Awesome dry palate, with a full body for a porter. Great stuff! bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark malt (smooth), chocolate, and something bitter that might be coffee. It finishes arguably dry, and coffee bitter. Not espresso, but coffee. It’s a good drink.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 A dark brown ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, dark roasted chocolate malt with roasted coffee, floral hops, nice. In mouth, a smooth black ipa with light coffee notes, nice. Bottle at Mondiale 2013, May 31 2013. Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Mondiale 2013. A very good porter. Black with almost no head, yet a lace trail. A tasty hoppy porter, with good drinkability. One of my favourites over this fest.

2013-05-30. Black body, nice tan head. 3+ Dusty dry malt aroma, light roast. Flavour is similar. Dry dusty malt. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent but pretty average overall. Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montrealdaknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies.
Night will fall and the dark will rise when a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost; the battle’s won but the child is lost.
Brown pour, light tan head. Very standard porter here, with an odd tart flavor. Roast, plums, milk chocolate, pumpernickel bread. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
[5412-20130530] Sample. Roasted cereal aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a foamy medium-lasting tan head. Toasted cereal nuts flavour has a grainy aftertaste. Medium body. Good. (7/3/6/3/14) 3.3

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a large white head. A big sweet milky nose. The flavor is milky and dry cocoa forward, some light roast, more dark chocolates, very smooth. A nice creamy palate. Good. AirForceHops (8033) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Paid$ 6.03 for a 22 oz. bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Problem with this brew is I forgot about it in my cellar and stumbled on it tonight. So I have to rate this on what it could be instead of what I’m tasting. It’s not Gigantic’s fault I forgot this in my cellar. Flavor is milk chocolate, hints of coffee and the palate is creamy with a full body for the style. I drank about 19 oz. from this bottle so even after consuming this old, it still works. It must be a decent brew.
