An average Porter, with the stand-out feature being the after-taste. Sampled at the Bier Stein. KansaiBeerLvrs (5191) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2016
I’m pretty sure this is a bottle imported in the 2015 Halloween season. A dark black with a thick beige head. It’s got a really good roasty doughy chocolate bun aroma. Medium bodied, it’s got a raspy carbonation and a rich roasty chocolate with nutty notes. A good fall brew with a Halloween name so a nice alternative to spicy pumpkin ales. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2016
[24/12/15] Bottle from Happy Valley Supermarket in Portland, OR: Brown body with slight, mocha head. Nose is chocolate, alcy, vanilla. Taste is toasty, big malts, chocolate again. Hops come in there too. Decent finish. Nice one. Arayaga2 (2199) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Cola brown/black with a tan head. Aroma is brown and toasty but will emerge as it warms. Taste is tootsie roll sweet and nutty which carries into the finish. Not much to it, but it is easy to drink and neither cloying or alcoholic for such a big beer. $5.5/22 oz

Bomber 8% from Capital Market. Very dark brown on the pour. Almost black in my goblet. Looked a little thin while pouring. Straightforward roasted malty nose with a little coffee and not much in the way of sweetness. Roasted malty flavor up front with a nice coffee finish. Fairly sweet with a good deal of milk sugar flavor. A bit of a hop kick as well. Pretty solid.

This is the 2014 version; different label, and higher ABV (8%). Seriously, this could easily be labeled as a stout. Strong coffee and chocolate notes, and pretty chewy as well. Recommended! oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle shared at california 10k event. Pours black with off white head. Taste is big roasted malts with some sweetness. It was a graveyard smash. Dodgrblu (748) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle at Cap Tap at 10 K celebration, hoppy, some water, character limit sucks. marcus (10326) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
At Capitol Beer bottle share. Pours dark brown with a modest beige head and a treacle aroma. There is a medium-bodied sweet malt flavor with a dry finish. jgb9348 (6316) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thin, very fast-dying tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, pumpkin, squash, nuts, earth, pit fruits, prunes and a bit of spices. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasty and earthy malts up front with a good dose of coffee and prunes right behind with little else aside from the slightest bit of hops. Aftertaste shows some squash and a faint note of spices and a bit of the sugars. Overall, a fairly watery imperial porter with not as much complexity as a standard porter, but showing a touch more alcohol. Decent to try, but I was expecting more from the brewery and I wouldn’t have brought this back home if I knew it would turn out like this. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland, Oregon (PDX Airport, Terminal D) on 28-September-2013 for US$5.49 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the country, two days before halloween on 29-October-2013.
