Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark brown with a dark tan foamy head. Aroma of light chocolate with some citrusy hop? Med body minus. There seems to be diacetyl. I’m sensitive to that. Otherwise chocolate, smooth burnt dark malt, and strongish coffee. The diacetyl is distracting, but not all that terrible. Finishes pleasantly bitter. stchloe (1067) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Strong dark coffee body almost espresso like, hoppy bite in the finish to balance out the sweet malts, nice long finish thats not too bitter. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2012
22. Pours jet black with a towering, dense, and creamy dark tan head. Stouty. Head piles up and takes forever to settle; pouring your glass is definitely a multi-step process. Mild roasty nose with a little cocoa and chalk. Creamy medium body, could stand up to a bit more carb but then again it doesn’t suffer for not having it. Very dry and ashy mid palate, almost smoked. Tons of heavy roasted barley in this. Long dry finish. If you like ’em dark and dry, this is a solid porter for you. Fairly easy drinking, though the finish is on the acetic side. douglas88 (9178) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Had at Beermongers. Pours a pure black color with a light beige head. The aroma is big mineral roasted malts. The flavor is nice; dark fruit, roasted malts, some chocolate, very mellow but also quite big, drinkable. A nice porter, lots to enjoy. Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Nice, fizzy porter. Black as night with a thick tan head. Roasted, rich aromatics. The palate is dark chocolate with a contrast of creamy and bubbly texture. Long, hoppy finish.

Bomber; new brewery to me; bottle says Baltic Porter; pours dense black with thin, creamy dark tan head; crisp roasty aromas with figs, chocolates, dry malt and a strong bitterness; thin mouthfeel with ashy chocolate and very dry, thin finish; astringency lingers but overall a pretty smooth roasty and slightly thick lager profile; very slight buttery note but mostly a mix of chocolate and roast; ashy flavors and dryness lingers Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle with Carla. Pours dark brown with tan foam. Smells warm of malts and alcohol. Tastes warm and bitter with hints of bitter chocolate and bourbon. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Bottle: Nearly black, huge fluffy beige head, nice lacing. Looks like a damn stout! Heavily
roasted nose, slight dark chocolate and cocoa, little bit of coffee. Pretty robust for a Porter. Nice
roasted malt base, very minor lactose and tart aspect after the start. Slightly dry, a bit chalky. Body
and mouthfeel are moderate. Has this roasty/dusty bakers chocolate sort of finish. The lingering aspect of
this beer sucks my mouth dry. Good Porter, but if it were a bit sweeter it would be so much better.
Otherwise fairly respectable. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured jet black with a tan head. Pretty darn roasty with a ruin body and good malt flavor. Hazelnuts, coffee and ash flavors. troopie (2339) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with mediu beige fast dissipating head. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Full bodied, chocolate and coffee notes. Light finish, less than you would expect.
