4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep brown with a medium mocha head...excellent retention and lacing! Aroma is nutty with subtle vanilla beneath nice roasty and mild coffee notes. Flavor is also nutty and robust...roasty, mild burnt notes, coffee, and just a smooth hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/nutty with a nice hint of vanilla...lingers with lightly burnt roastiness. What a great porter! The vanilla is subtle but present and accentuates a great base porter wonderfully.
