Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a fleeting, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a lush, bold marriage of fudge and mocha. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is roasty and chocolaty with an oily, viscous, smooth-as-silk finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63! Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Dark brown/black color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of toasted/smoky malt, coffee, & some chocolate; Flavor of roasted sweet malt, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee/espresso, and some hops; Warm finish; Nothing too exciting - but not bad. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Dont really remember much about this one, which isn't a good thing. Must have been kinda forgettable.

Bottle shared by Big John. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses flavor with a carbonated finish. Very tasty. alexsdad06 (10423) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
22 oz bottle shared with the group. I had to get this bottle since the dog looksvery much like one of my dogs. Pours dark reddish brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, dark fruits, some roasted malt, cocoa and coffee, the alcohol is well hidden. Decent stuf.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted dark malt and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark roasted sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex beer.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee and cocoa. Flavor is sweet and roasty with notes of toffee. A little bit boozy finish to this one from the abv. Not bad. Dfonorow (2216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle share at DLD 2014. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of coffee grounds, dark caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and espresso. Finish has a bit of lactose and licorice. Strange porter, but good. AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber from Andersonville Wine & Spirits. Batch 320/321, so batch date was early January. Cellared a month, and served colder than cellar temperature. Pour a dark brown with a cafe au lait head. Strings and spots of lace. Aroma has lots of caramel and molasses; later down in the glass, there is chocolate and some roast and maybe black licorice. Taste is of sweet caramel, bakers chocolate, espresso and some lactose. Medium to full bodied. Some alcohol present. Finishes nicely blended between bitter and sweet. Another stellar effort from Pipeworks!
