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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Albertsons. Pours out a dark but clear brown with nice, tall fluffy head. Vanilla edges out the roast grains in the aroma, but both balance out in the taste. Roast grains finish the whole deal with a dry, lingering bite. Not overly sweet, which is nice.

Small greige head over black-brown beer. Sweetish, bit dusty, vanilla, malts. Vanilla, liquorice, lavender, dry wood, pine. Harsh resiny vanilla finish. Medium bodied, well-carbonated. Bad it isn’, if a tad light. But the vanilla gets too harsh in the aftertaste. I get quite some lavender, too. Thx to M & L V!
