3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown thin tan head. Caramel, nuts, chocolate, and hint of vanilla aroma. Mild sweet taste. Medium-full body, thicker texture, dry roasty finish. Pretty good overall. A little too much carbonation for me, also more vanilla would have been nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating = 1/5 = Good, but I would not seek this out again. Very attractive appearance with 1.5 finger foam. Froth reminds me of chocolate milk, but somewhat lighter like Kahula. Aroma is quite intense of sweet vanilla, but no additional complexities outside of additional malts and alcohol burn on the finish of the nose. Very watery on the palate, especially for a porter. No taste of vanilla throughout the tasting. The light palate, does make for a nice sessionable beer however. The beer is easy to drink. Taste is non complex with "light" traditional porter notes. Wouldja - No.

The vanilla on this isn't as strong as I remember it being from previous encounters... which is a good thing. I used to be afraid of buying a 6 pack and eventually getting sick of it, but that definitely wouldn't be the case.
