12oz bottle. Pour is dark brown with no head. Not really much in the aroma. I get some vanilla and a bit of roastiness. Mouth is vanilla, a bit of syrup and a hint of bitterness. Medium-to-full bodied. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark, reddish brown pour with large, thin beige foam. Roasted and caramel malt in the nose with vanilla and a little chocolate. Medium body, slightly slick and thin fizz. The vanilla is subtle at first, but emerges as it warms. Rich, with a long finish. A good winter beer, heavier than a brown, lighter than a stout.

Out of all the vanilla porters on the market, this one kicks butt. Bottle. Vanilla and malt aroma. Malty vanilla flavors, but it's more intense than other vanilla porters out there. Nice beer!
