Bomber > Pint Glass

A - Black brown with a ton of foamy tan head, its either over carbonated or infected. Thick lacing
S - Big roasty chocolate and malt, burnt toffee, earthy mild hop notes, caramel, really wonderful aroma.
T - Rather large bitter bite, burnt coffee, earthy, dark chocolate, big hop presence, even more so than the malt, which kinda detracts, but still good.
M - Medium body, well carbonated, not super rich or bitter, decent balance.
O - Excellent aroma, flavor falls a tad short, but still a very good porter.

Snagged a bomber of this for a mere 5 bucks at my local house of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.
A - Looks damn near perfect a deep dark shade of amber almost black with a 1/2 inch of opaque colored head that sticks around forever. Making for great lacing.
S - Smell is great roasted malt, some cocoa, and a touch of coffee. No hops smell so it must have been aged out.
T - Bittering hops are their but only slightly distracting. Next I get some dry roasty taste and finish is rather sweet with cocoa powder and sugar sweetness. Not bad.
M - Light to medium rather smooth. Good.

Overall it was a very good porter quite hoppy but age has done it wonders. Worth the 5 bucks I paid for it.
