Bottle:   Deep black, thin frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Big rich malty nose, soft hop.   A little pith and citrus peel, slight dark chocolate.   Rich dark chocolate and heavy roasted malts on the tongue.   A touch of coffee beans too.   Falls off quickly, leaving a little acrid roastiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A slight touch of pasture on the backside.   Could stand to be sweeter, less acrid too.   A little bit of a bruiser. bigbish (722) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
This is a really nice beer. The roasted flavors give it a slightly bitter finish that is complemented well by the hops. This would be a great session beer. Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2013
22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem
Pours a mostly ebony colour with a lovely and large frothy/thick tan head.
Aroma is very porter like with essence of french roast coffee and semi-dark chocolate only a small amount piney hop shows through.
Again the taste is porter like with a burnt malt bitterness mixed with heavy cream and chocolate..again very little hopping to the fore ( though it is there).
Palate is gorgeous..smooth.thick and silky.
THis is a very nice beer but i do not think it a CDA..its a great porter though! Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2013

Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours very dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Aromas of darker malt and chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is a good deal of mixed hop, dark malt and chocolate. Finishes bitter, with a burn which might be from all the hop. Can’t see it being chocolate. It’s an ale which did not skimp on ingredients, and it’s very tasty. It burps rather resin!

2013 Oregon Garden BrewFest. A solid India Dark Ale. Roasted malts and chocolate with a light piney bitterness throughout. MikeJslc (778) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Dark brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of chocolaty malt, light resiny hops. Flavor of toasty malt, biscuit, cocoa, restrained piney-resiny hops. Somewhere between a black IPA and a porter, but tasty.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a medium brown head. A sweet nose of roast and chocolates. A rich deep porter like flavor of chocolates, mint, some roast, cocoa, rich fruity hops. Low bitterness. Good. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle served in a tulip. Pours black with a medium sized dense light brown head. Aroma of chocolate malt and both clean and earthy hops. Light sweet attack followed by roast and hop bitterness. Good body, thick-creamy texture, and a long roasty bitter finish. Well balanced and well made.
