From bottle to glass. Moderate soft vanilla and high roast. Very dark brown and clear with a beige head. Moderate webbing. Flavor is overt roast and coffee with a slight artificial vanilla backing. Astringent.

@Basunen: doften är ganska klen men smaken är riktig trevlig med mycket torr kaffe och trevliga vaniljtoner. Fin och söt eftersmak.

Pours a deep brown color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is of burnt malt mixed with chocolate and coffee. The coffee flavor is evident throughout the beer with a tinge of vanilla. A robust porter as advertised, with full flavor.

Bomber from bevmo. vanilla working on the front end. Bittersweet coffee and roastiness quickly comes in and drowns out the sweet vanilla. Competing flavors here and not quote working too well together. Otherwise the individual flavors are pretty nice.
