3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate foamy tannish head, fairly nice lacing.   Fake vanilla nose, major honeycomb cereal like aroma.   Soft roastiness.   Seems like a light porter, with this artificial vanilla like sweetness that is actually more like a kids cereal.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Honeycomb like vanilla flavors on the exit, little roastiness is available on the exit.   Not a big Porter, very light, with a fake vanilla like flavor.   Reminds me a bunch of the Coeur díAlene Vanilla Porter, fake and not big enough.   Meh...
