Deep brown and thin brown head with no retention. Oak, vanilla, and notes of cherry in the aroma. Strong vanilla and oak with some cherry and chocolate sweetness. Light warming. Strong oak dryness and sticky linger.

Perhaps needing additional aging, the oak is far to strong finishing after a wonderful flavor. The oak sucks all the moisture from your mouth as well as the flavor and your left with only a woody stickiness on the lips. It's great, until you swallow.

Deepest black color with a thin caramel head.
Bold aroma of vanilla, oak, cherries and cocoa.
Flavor with notes of vanilla, cherries, roasted and smoked malts, oak, cocoa, licorice, char and lots of dark fruits.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 9.8% is superbly well hidden.
Excellent beer with good malty and fruity complexity in both nose and mouth. You can really feel the added ingredients, but they were carefully balanced not to over excel one over another. Recommendable.

22 oz Bomber.This was recommended by a beer geek that worked at Bev Mo to me.I have to say that I am going to start listening to those people a little more.This is the Best Porter I have ever tasted.Beautiful brown color in the 20 oz firestone glass.I was sitting in the house listening to The Who live at the isle of wight and I could not believe how good this was.I guess this is very hard to find the date was 2012 on the bottle.If you can still find this Please do.You will not be disappointed.This Porter Rocks.And so does The Who.Rock on with the good beers.Motley out.
