This beer starts off looking and smelling great. The color is dark and robust. You definitely smell the coffee aromas also. First taste is a great chocolate malt and then it has a very (almost too) smooth finish. Overall this is a very good beer

Pours a deep brownish black on tap with thin ring of tan head. Aroma and taste of good vanilla and coffee notes. Thinner mouth, but solid beer, better than the ratings here.

Poured a deep black color with aromas of light roast, coffee, and some vanilla. Flavors are light chocolate, and coffee with some roast with lots of vanilla, decent overall.

Bottle. Thin black pour. Vanilla over powers the coffee aroma and taste. Good flavor just too much vanilla. Should have aged the beer on vanilla beans instead of using extract. Far too strong flavor with the extract. Not bad but could definitely be better.

On tap. Comes dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of vanilla and coffee. Taste is vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. As others have noted, it is thin and artificial. Still drinkable.

Black. Tons of vanilla aroma and flavor. Subtle coffee. Kind of a weird taste at the end. Thx Anthony.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big aroma is the best part. Pours dark with almost no head. Aroma does have vanilla notes amid the coffee. Flavor deteriorates, with just a thin, kinda boring java flavor. Porters should have far more complexity before adding things like coffee or chocolate. This would never stand on its own.

ABV is actually 4.5 %. Pours a dark brown with a med light tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a background of vanilla. A mouthful is thinner than expected. Not really any coffee flavor detected.
