3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Dark brown color, short off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight chocolate and mocha, slight hint of vanilla. Medium sweet in taste, with more vanilla present. Slight dry and bitter as well. I was expecting much more vanilla, but its almost non-present in aroma and more present in flavor, but all quite subtle. Felt more like a dry stout than a porter, with some vanilla added. Not bad, a bit weak perhaps.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasent beer, like a beerish ice coffee with lots of vanilla. Has some notes of milk chocolate as well, but mostly coffee vanilla that has a surprising bitter aftertaste. Good beer.
