Tasted 7/8/11. 22oz bomber. Thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Pours filtered with a brown hue. Khaki head. Aromas of toffee and dark chocolate with a mild flare of alcohol, backed up with a subtle coffee note. Full bodied with a malt dominant palate and a mild effervescence. Fudgy and silky with a deep dark roast. Nutty flavors with a dark chocolate sweetness and a good coffee bitterness. Good body with a pleasant warming aspect. Solid stuff!

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. undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2011
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 (2040) - 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 (2398) - 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 (5122) - , 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.
