Bomber from Whole Foods Market Dublin/Columbus, OH. Pours a clear very dark ruby color with a thin fizzy tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, light roast and mild nutty notes. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, bitter coffee, nutty notes, caramel and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Well balanced. Nice beer.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and slight molasses. Flavor starts off well with the chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Not much of a lingering flavor and a little watery on the finish. jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2011

22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a nice dark but clear brown color with a small tan head. Notes of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, earth, toast, and some faint caramel. Medium-bodied, with a rich and toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes dry. My buddy used this for his dip spit once the bottle was down and I almost finished it before realizing what was going on. Good thing or it would have ruined my memory of this.

This starts with a nice strong aroma of chocolate and coffee, with big roasted notes. It pours a dark black, with ruby highlights when held up tot he light, with a big cragy light tan head. This is a nice easy drinking dark roasty beer, with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Fairly light on the palate, with a bit of oily slickness to the mouthfeel. This is a good solid porter for the price.

Bottle shared by portableparty. Pours deep brown/black with a thin head. Aroma of lots of coffee, with some chicolate and burnt malts. Taste is the same. Very thin but nice to drink. Thanks Jeff! DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to portableparty. Dark black pour, almost no carbonation and a light coffe aroma. Flavor is good and smokey malts, lactose sweetness and finished with a little vanilla. Very good! portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle thanks DalzAle. Pour is clear brown with a soapy off white head. Aroma is chocolate coffee and caramel pretty sweet. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate and coffee with a bittering finish. Palate is thin and finishes bitter and dry. Not bad stuff. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2011
At tap at the Brew Kettle.
Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose has a good roast character and a fairly-strong coffee presence. Really quite nice; a good in-between beer after going back and forth between all of their hoppy offerings. The taste has mostly coffee and roast as well, though the roast is quite a bit more prevalent and brings it a bit out of balance. The body is medium with a dry finish. Pretty solid and enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

HEY PORTER, Johnny said. Nice large and in charge pour. Big and black, good looking porter. Decently clean roasty flavors with a gentlemanlike bitterness. Smells like its OK. Flavorfull yet not too much CO2. Stronger alky sensations begin to build. Lovely large bomber bottle. I always said you need a bomber to have a good sample, heheh. Sizzly at times in the cheak during the session. Creamy thin head, fades only to a thick around the edge pound scum thing which makes me want to stick my tongue in it. Certainly some choco thing hidden in the background. Brew kettle is on par with the best of them. Not as good as wild bills or bells or even EE pink clouds, but OK overall for a porter; not as offensive as the ABV would indicate. This is really a dark beer experience fer sure and I’m glad to have had it.
