I think this is an excellent porter. It has a taste of vanilla and chocolate with a hint of coffee, and it feels and taste good on the palate. This will not the first time I purchase this beverage, and it’s easy on the wallet too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted in Breckenridge (go figure). Tasted in shaker. About half an inch white head. Not pitch black, black-reddish tinge. Aroma of vanilla and coffee - roasted malt. Tastes of roasted malt with a finish of vanilla and a slightly sour after taste. Overall not bad however I was hoping for something bigger and bolder.

Dark brown color, slightly tan and quickly dissipating head - Aroma: roasted malt, discreet aroma of coffee, chocolate and toffee. Vanilla aroma becomes prominent towards the otherwise a bit watery finish - Taste is medium sweet and slightly bitter - Medium to full body, creamy and soft mouthfeel, rather soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark brown with a thin creamy head, typical of porters. Immediate chocolate/coffee notes with a very light vanilla after taste. I like the lightness of the vanilla taste. It tastes natural and not overdone or fake. Overall good porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nuts and strong scent of chocolate are present upon first whiff. Right away, you can tell that it’s a porter with flavor. Pours much like any other porter, minimal creamy head. A chocolate porter upon first sip, but a nice hint of vanilla follows in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a one-inch ivory head that dissipates to a thin film. Aromas of dark fruit, coffee and chocolate. Flavors are gypsum, coffee, and plum. Vanilla and licorice in the finish. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Not great, but not bad.
