Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with thin wispy off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, mild burnt sugar, and a nice vanilla kick. Taste follows, but all pretty mild, if not a little thin on the mouth. Meh, not bad but nothing too exciting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
