2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark molases with a head that almost immediately disappears. Aroma is day old coffee grounds in that depressing tinted filter kind of way. The flavor starts out sweet with strong flavors of Vanilla and coffee but finishes bitter with the nose winning over and coffee grounds filling dancing on the tongue with the strong carbonation. Would enjoy more balance of vanilla and coffee with a stronger coffee rather than ground flavor. Overall average.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Amazing aromas of coffee. Definitely a robust porter! Lots of delicious malt, coffee flavors with a hint of vanilla.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nose of vanilla, chocolate with hints of coffee. A solid black-brown pour with a thin khaki head and no lacing. Vanilla pounces on the tongue and doesn’t leave much room for anything else. Coffee, hints of chocolate, and cola. Medium-light body with modest carbonation. Overall, a politely sweet porter but definately not a "robust porter". Ok, but nothing outstanding.

Bottle. Jet black. Thin head. Chocolate milkshake nose. Vanilla extract. Taste is more of the same. A little disjointed. Thin on the palate. Has a brew-by-numbers quality to it.
