How have I not rated this before mid-2012? I have not had it in years, but Atwater’s Vanilla Java Porter is the best tasting substance I have ever put in my mouth! It may not be the best representative of its style, but OMG it tastes good. Aroma of dark chocolate. Flavors include dark chocolate, vanilla and dark roast coffee. This might be the most perfect anything in the history of things! Too bad I only had access to it for a year or two, in variety 12-packs. With Yuengling coming to Ohio, my interstate beer runs have ceased, but maybe I need to head Northwest for one now?

Aroma is small tan head with deep black. Aroma has some vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is a blend of roasted coffee and vanilla. Overall not a strong or complex one, but well balanced and enjoyable.
