Picked up a bomber on a recent trip to Plymouth NH. A pretty basic style to brew. Tasty and robust. Body on the thin side, which would make this good with food.
Draft at Lab and Lager. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Robust roasted malt and chocolate notes on the nose. Lots of chocolate on the tongue. Solid bitterness on the finish. Nice! solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 28, 2017
Roast and some nut. Pours black with good head and lacing. Caramel. Good mix and easy to session like Wire episodes. Can thanks to johnnnnie. dfinney23 (3248) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2016
No frills porter leaning to the more bitter side of the scale. Chocolate and roast with only the faintest hint of sweetness. Yum. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. can.
Opaque, dark cola brown with a 2-finger tan head and very good lacing.
Aroma of roasted nuts, roasted malt, caramel and roasted nuts.
Taste of bitter toasted walnuts, caramel, sweet crude chocolate and roasted malt. The bitter nuts are more than amply offset by the sweet malt flavors.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation with nice mouthfeel.
The can I drank yesterday had an off taste. Maybe it was my palate, because this can (from the same 6-pack) seems fine.

Draft at Block Six, Portsmouth, NH. This came across like homebrew to me -- it was thin, slightly acidic from the dark malts, not terribly roasty, and a bit all over the place. It was perfectly fine as a quaffer, but sub-par. gregwilsonstl (2453) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Smells a bit off. Foam bomb. Shared with my bros. Watery Thx johnnnniee. Bacon. Vegetable. Grainy. tekstr1der (481) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Near-black pour with frothy tan top. Smells of chocolate and rich malt. Both come through in flavor with some spice and roast. This finishes fairly clean, but a little dry. Slightly more carbonation than I’d like. Pretty decent overall. AlainG (2220) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
Une brune qui est fière de sa mousse puisqu’elle la retient longtemps. Un nez classique du style; grains grillés, torréfaction, quelques effluves acidulées par-ci, par-là. Un goût de café amer, c légèrement poivré et une effervescence soutenue au travers une texture svelte et des saveurs herbacées rendant le tout fort agréable. C’est sans prétention et bien exécuté.

This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger off white to tan foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. Messy lacing tries to cling but slides into the beer.
The smell had a nice sweet blend of sticky cocoa, rich dark fruits, some light coffee and a delicate amount of robust spices.
The taste was mainly sweet with a nice rich robust roastiness sticking to my tongue and leveling out to a nice smooth fruity to robust to sweet coffee aftertaste. There’s a quick little rich sweet fruity roasty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs nice and smooth. Low
penetration of bitterness definitely shows its an English Porter.
Overall, for me it’s good. Pretty sure I’d have again. For the style, it’s right up there as a well done English Porter.
