Bomber. I can only assume that the bottle I got was damaged. What poured out was an overcarbonated science project gone bad. Once the foam finally died down enough to take a taste it definitely seemed off. Curiously I see other reviewers who might have had similar experiences so maybe what I tasted was what it was supposed to be and in that case it is a disaster. In any case will not be buying this again. dlovell2 (2283) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Poured from 22 oz bottle. Poured like a homebrew. Foamed up half the glass and had to anxiously wait to settle to finish filling glass. Dark brown with amber tint. Roasted malt aroma. Very carbonated. Roasted malt flavors with chocolate notes. Unpleasant tartness. johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Pours a dark brown with a bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of chocolate, brown sugar, floral hops, and a bit of spicy yeast. Taste is roasty chocolaty molasses with a hop bite that is followed by an acridic bitter finish that makes this one unpleasant. Carbonation is a touch on the high side, mouthfeel is bubbly, body is medium. Its good until the finish then it just kinda gets ugly. I couldn’t finish this one.

Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head 3 fingers deep with good retention. Mild chocolate sweet aromatics with a hint of bitterness and coco. Malty sweet and salty body, light chocolate, coco and a hint of licorice. bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours close to black with bottle conditioning sediment. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, coffee, toffee. Flavors of coffee, cocoa, toffee, tobacco. Too much astringent roast for the style. Slightly dry finish. Medium body with foamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Way too much carbonation. Much better once it off-gases.

1 pint 6fl oz bottle poured brown brew with tan head. Tons of sediment floating around like a snow globe. This porter is tamed with some nice hops. Great value in this beer. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle pours brown with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of chocolate, coffee, chili pepper, as well as a touch of black pepper. Flavor shows the same with an additional hint of ash and metal. Yumm! SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
This is terrible. This is terrible. This is terrible. This is terrible. This is terrible. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Brown pour. Ashy, tart, light raisin aroma. Flavor is thin, watery, toasty, light chocolate. Not so good. Maverick34 (3302) - New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Draft from amity hall. A reddish dark kind of a watery mouthfeel. Ok but not a favorite
