On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a deep brown with a nice brown head. Moderate (in a great way), subtle vanilla with slight roast. Flavors follows through with the vanilla lending a soft rounded mouthfeel. Quality beer and my favorite from the tasting session.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light-brown head on there. Nose is fairly heavy on the vanilla, but pleasantly so, and includes some roasting and hints of chocolate. Taste is fairly sweet, and has a lot of vanilla, but little "porter" to it. Smell is much better than the taste for me.
