Bit of a sharper almost dryer vanilla taste that finishes very refreshing. Very complex flavor with the hops and vanilla sweetness. Exceptional porter!

On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a deep brown color with a medium white head. A smooth roasted nose with light fruit. Not a ton of barrel in the flavor, maybe some wood, roast, coffee, slight sour fruit. Good overall.
