Vanilla and chocolate notes are nice, but I get the impression this would be a pretty weak porter otherwise. Body and ,alt profile do not stand out. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Deep brown color with a thick and creamy tan head. Decent bits of thick wavy lacing. The aroma is strong with roast, lighter in cocoa and vanilla sweetness. Taste is consistent with the aroma, a moderate level of roast and mild bittersweetness before finishing with a bit more sweet from the vanilla. The vanilla stands out more than the cocoa and compliments the level of roast. Good stuff, but not a stand out. I could just sit back and enjoy a few pints of this, especially given the $5.00 price point.
