Pours a nice dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, coffee, and malts. Taste is rich and complex, with lots of wood, vanilla, and just enough coffee. This a delicious porter, thumbs way up!

Outstanding beer. Paired with ice cream. Making this a porter instead of a stout was a great idea. It was a bit thick for a porter, but just right in effect. Tasted of roasted malt, coffee and vanilla. Balance was perfect. Pairing with plain vanilla ice cream was also perfect as the creaminess of the ice cream went well with the mouthfeel and flavor of the beer.

12oz bottle. Pours dark with a tan head. Delicious porter with a nice combination of vanilla and coffee notes. Both the vanilla and coffee flavors are clearly derived from high quality ingredients and play a central role in this one. The high alcohol does not come through in flavor or burn but I definitely felt it after taking my last sip.

Bottle: deep brown, thick chocolate head and great lace. Very lifted intense roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla and coffee. Great complexity, depth and freshness. Creamy. Dry, not sour and moderately bitter. Great depth and concentration of flavor.
At 10% this is amazingly fresh and balanced. Love this beer.
