Can pour opaque dark brown with rapidly dissipating tan head. Nose sweet caramel, light vanilla. Taste vanilla, caramel, mild roast as it warms. Thinner mouth feel. Not bad, no off putting flavors, but not outstanding either.

12 ounce can poured into a shaker pint. The beer is a clear dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has vanilla, a fruity chocolate, some ash, and a mild caramel note. The taste has mostly sweetness with a bite of bitterness in the finish. Medium body and higher carbonation than I would expect in a porter.

Draft sampler at BIERmarkt USA on January 2, 2016..Almost opaque brown hue, nice malty/vanilla nose, solid vanilla/roasted malt taste. Another fine brew from Four String.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark mahogany brown color, thick beige head that slowly drops to a thin cover, wide lace bands. Aroma of malt with vanilla. Taste is lightly toasted malt with vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate. It moves through the swallow to an edgy finish that has a tiny shot of hops (translated, that means no change and no complexity). Overall, a decent brew, but similar to the other Four String offerings.

12oz can shared that poured a medium brown color with an off white head. The aroma was mild to medium roasted malts and vanilla extract. The flavor was more of the same. Mild roasted malt flavor with vanilla extract. Overall decent flavor and a decent beer from these guys finally.

markwise (5011) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Can from Barrel and the Bottle in Columbus. Pours a nice porter brown with an off-tan head. Nose is earth, cola, some medicinal notes, mild syrupy vanilla, and bits of chocolate. Flavor is similar with mild chocolate, earth, some medicinal notes, some mild vanilla, and some mildly tart notes. Light in body and an almost dry finish.

burg326 (5082) - Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Poured a dark brown color with aromas of light roast, vanilla, light earth and some malt. Flavors are vanilla, cola, some roast and light malt. Little thin for my liking but decent overall not the worst porter out there. Thanks markwise for the can.
