Bottled 11/15/15 and drunk 5/22/16, shared by AdamC, thanks!
Dark ebony with some muted mahogany hues on the edges. Seemingly good clarity with a tan head atop that is medium-sized and fades quickly to cover.
Vanilla and cinnamon are easily picked out of the nose, as a dark chocolate backdrop keeps things "dry" and very porter-like. I honestly get more house yeast character than anything, and thankfully, the coffee is nice and restrained, adding only a light amount of roast. Biscuity, chocolate-laden malts linger, with more cinnamon spiciness and no alcohol or flaw.
Lots of cinnamon in the flavor, drying things out considerably, with spicy vanilla quite apparent as well. Dark chocolate, very light roast, bits of prune/plum and very low sweetness on top of a medium-light body with low carbonation. It’s drinkable and nicely attenuated with no forceful malt sweetness or alcohol, but I could do with less cinnamon and probably less vanilla, even granting that this is a holiday spiced porter. Otherwise, nicely done and surprisingly light.
