Bottel sent to me by Prufrockstar - thanks Chris! Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Big roasted malt nose with a hint of burnt chocolate. Great mouthfeel, perfect balance of hops, bitterness and roast. Quit nice. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2016 Bomber, shared with friends over pizza. Pours deep and dark with good head. Aroma: big on roast and chocolate. Taste: mild sweetness, big roast bitter finish. Palate: medium body, nearly perfect mouthfeel. Overall: this was an awfully nice porter. Awfully nice. Flavorful and way easy to drink. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Rerate as part of blind taste. Balanced and creamy; somewhat chalky; medium+ body with lasting roasty-ish bitter finish [7/4/7/4/14] for middle of the pack in this group of 6.
Bomber. Dark brown in appearance with a layer of mocha foam. Standard Porter aroma of coffee, chocolate and burnt malts. Taste is roasted caramel malt, cocoa powder and light roast coffee with a bit of piney hops around the edges. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation and a dry, charred finish. Overall, a standard Porter with a significant amount of roastiness throughout each sip. luttonm (7077) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
22oz bottle from Bottleworks. Gorgeous deep roasty brown, nice foamy brown head. Clean roasty coffee, chocolate malt, balanced sweetness. Fantastic drinker, smooth and lots of taste, a true strong bodied porter with reasonable abv. Lots of flavor in a clean beer. Lovely chuckstout (336) - Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013

Dark reddish brown. Nice roasted malt aroma. Taste is dark and roasty malt. One of the better porters I’ve had. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Nice porter. Has a good roastiness and a solid malt base. Doesn't harbor any doubts of wanting to be a stout. Non sweet. An imperial version would be welcomed.

Bottle from Elizabeth Station Bellingham, fresh. Pours dense brown with a little frothy head and lace. Aroma is very clean rich toasted barley, crisp evergreen air. Flavor starts cool and sweet then takes a long ride through charred pine. The feel is chewy but astringent with a mouth watering toasted finish. Reuben’s has me sold after just two of their beers. Classic but unique. AdamChandler (5225) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Brown to black with amber edges debittered dark malts and smoked malts. A hint of raisins and chocolate. This is a pretty well balanced porter. The combo in the taste is chocolate and smoked malts with an undercurrent of oak and caramel. Not too sweet or dry Travlr (26946) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Draft at the source with ajax25g. Dark murky maroon color. Aroma of dark cocoa, smoky edge. Taste is smooth bitter chocolate. Very tasty.
