Bomber, bottled Dec 2012. Pours black with a small foamy head that quickly fades and leaves some minor webbing. Nice rich aroma of chocolate, coffee, currants, tobacco, cookie dough, and vanilla. Taste has some light chocolaty sweetness mixed with a strong, bitter roasted coffee. Lots of tobacco, raisins, cookies, currants. Delicious. Long bitter finish with a slightly spicy kick, not sure if that’s hops, rye, or something else. Thick body with a smooth creamy and oily mouthfeel. Awesome beer. I want to get another of these. phaleslu (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared at Natifest- I missed who opened this, though. Pours a near-black color, opaque, with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malts. The flavor is the same. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, smooth, roasty mouthfeel. Really nice, big, bold Baltic porter. JStax (7123) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013

Nice dark brown pour with a brown head. Flavors of rich chocolate, some raisins, toasted malt, and finishes a bit dry, almost like there is some rye in it. These guys are good. jesperhammer (4874) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
23-JUL-2013, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Black with dark brown, lasting head.
Roasted aroma with prunes and soy. Taste the same but better.
Sweet but with a touch of bitterness.
Full body and soft carbonation. Often Westbrook beers have been overcarbonated but this is wonderfull. b79turner (260) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 26, 2013
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours jet plack with a large tan head. Very oily inky mouthfeel. A lot of peat, earthy, cocoa, pretty harsh really. More of an imperial stout than a porter, not bad. Firefly54 (246) - - JUL 20, 2013
Jet black with a thick tan head. Disappears quick. Aroma is mainly chocolate, roasty, coffee. Taste starts smooth followed by a long long bitterness that hangs about. I’m struggling to pick out flavours as the bitterness is overpowering. Oily & medium bodied. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2013
22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small brown head. Aroma of booze, sweet milk chocolate, ans roast malts. Taste much as the aroma with the chocolate, leading the way, a nice bitter end.
