Very Good
Notes: A robust porter, pitch black in color with notes of baking chocolate, fresh coffee, and a distinct umami character that sets it apart from your everyday porter.

Named after the term for crude oil, Bunker-C shares its richness and desirability, but is much more affordable than its namesake.

From a growler to a plastic cup.

What a pleasant surprise. Very dark, little head, and thick. Smelled of vanilla and heavy chocolate. The taste was strong chocolate, cocao and a nice blend of the vanilla. Sweet! Thick and creamy smooth.. this reminded me of Shake, which was a definite plus. A very well brewed beer, which I will be happy to revisit.

Beige hear which leaves a near blanket of lace with definitive levels for rings. Dark brown where no light passes through the edge of the glass.

Darker chocolate aroma. Very little sweetness but there's no burnt or coffee smells. I get just a touch of almond, like amaretto.

The taste is slightly sweeter making the chocolate taste more semisweet. A bit of milkiness. The body leans rich but the carbonation compensates. The aftertaste has a chalky element to the tongue.
