Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate - medium chocolate. Med body plus a little. Frothy carb. Flavor is chocolate over smooth, but ashy, burnt malt. Plus I think there’s a definite smoke aspect. Smooth. Nearly dry. Mildly bitter. Still think smoked chocolate is the finish. Pretty decent stuff. I like it more than most porters. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2016
(22oz bottle, 2012 vintage) Pours a mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted grain, ash, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, raisins, ash, chocolate, and coffee with a dry finish. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"I was looking forward to this based on the goodness of their oatmeal stout. This was a solid porter entry, but nothing too exciting. Light roast, coffee, subtle hops. A little chocolate on the back end of the flavor. Standard, but good." marcus (10561) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
On tap at Fredfest 2012. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a thin dark molasses flavor with a dry finish. douglas88 (9570) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a deep brown color with some mahogany, a beige head. A light nose of cocoa and toast. A pretty mellow porter with caramel, toast, light chocolate, maybe some hop bitterness. Very light. OK.

Draft at Indigo. Pours a grainy, murky black with a scant tan filmy head. Dark bitter chocolate nose. Creamy medium body, decent carb. Bitter chocolate mid palate with a mild roasty finish. Kind of a one trick pony. Sledutah (7789) - Utah, USA - APR 5, 2012
12oz bottle picked up at The Grapevine 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2012
Appearance: Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head and some lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts, chocolate and roasted coffee
Taste: Roasted malts and coffee, milk chocolate
Nice, smooth and tasty.
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy tannish head, sparce lacing.   Strong toasted malts, nearly roasty, slightly sweet, a bit of coffee with lots of cream.   Not a big example on the tongue.   Thin roastiness on the tongue, a bit of coffee with lots of cream and a touch of sugar.   Little hop, pale malts overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... leaning on the thin side tho.   Pretty boring example overall, not robust, comes across as a an Irish Ale with a smidgen of Porter.   At least based on least years example.   ZZZZZZzzzzz..... riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Dark roasted grains and light bittersweet chocolate on the nose. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. The flavor is that of roasted husky grains, a little coffee, and dark bittersweet chocolate. Dry roasty finish. Somewhat one dimensional but as usual well done. Good drinkability. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2012
