2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Chestnut brown with couple mm of dust-brown head, fine, moderate-to-fast to fade, swirly film remaining. Aroma of perfumy vanilla, frozen corn cakes, Flavor of vanilla, light burnt crust, more corn cake, light grassy bitterness, watery body with moderate, somewhat prickly and hot carbonation. The aroma kills it. Yuck. The dog wouldn’t even drink it.

This porter poured a deep black colour with a rocky, tan coloured head. Scents include vanilla, caramel and a little coffee. First swig had a little watery mouthfeel but the flavour of vanilla, cocoa, coffee and roast made up for that. Finish is roasty and sweet with roasted vanilla flavours lingering.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a solid dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt and noticeable vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, malt, mild coffee, and vanilla. There is a real cola feel to this with the sweetness and body which is most noticeable on the finish. Very thin body with medium carbonation which is amplified by the lack of depth and body. Very sweet porter. I like the presence of vanilla here but this really feels more like a soda than anything else.

it does get props for having vanilla in taste and aroma, but feels gimmicky; more soda like drink than beer - thin side; meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"dark brown with a tan head. aroma is a little weak. watery roasted malt and vanilla, with a hint of roasted coffee. palate a little weak as well. leaning more towards a brown ale. needs to be more robust. the flavor is pleasant, but nothing too special. lots of vanilla. a little coffee at first...lots in the finish. good, but no depth. i’ll give it an 8...realy more like a 7.4-7.5, but a 3.3 overallis fair. just an ok beer. running out of trade beers from Lou. Frick!"
