Sampled at the RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. Clear deep mahogany body with a white film. Malty nose. Sweet, dark fruits and a gently roasted bitterness that leaves the tongue dry. Medium to full bodied and smooth to drink. gunnar (9217) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2014

Bottle, 22oz, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A brown one, unclear, and topped by a beige head of moderate size. Roasted aroma with some coffee and molasses. The hops play a significant part too. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting roasted finish with molasses and a touch of dried fruits. Pretty pleasant this one. 140215 Meilby (11517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014

Bomber from CraftShack. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is very chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate, and coffee. Maybe a hint of smoke. It’s pretty dry, and moderately bitter. Has an astringent aspect in the finish. Tasty. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Dark red pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, cocoa and chocolate. The flavor has a good bit of cocoa and smoke with some roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. SDalkoholic (2395) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from Whispering Tree: Appeared as a dark brown liquid with almost no formation of head. Aroma is mild with a light roasty malt nose that comes across as a bottle of iced coffee. The drink is sweet and bitter with roast ground coffee bean and toasted brown malts that doesn’t make this that special of a porter. Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
22oz bomber pours pretty darn dark with a mocha tan sort of head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some burnt malts, chocolate and then a red wine like tartness. The taste, sadly, is the same. I get roasty to chocolate to burnt malts followed by tart tannin red wine like notes. Not that great. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
