The taste is a bit artificial, too much vanilla overwhelms the porter. Kind of harsh bite to it too.

Thanks to KenW. Such an incredibly slippery palate. Thinner than many porters too. Serving: Bottle

One of our favorite. Classic go-to for a slightly sweet, not heavy coffee, a hint of cocoa, and asmooth vanilla porter. Easy drinking. Good cold and flavors enhance as it warms.

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.
