Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Mild flavor, with mild vanilla after taste. As a porter I was expecting a stronger, bolder flavor. The beer was refreshing and pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle to tulip. Pours black/ruby red, dissipating tan soda head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, vanilla, nutty, brown sugar, raisin. Taste is good blend of above notes. Semi dry bitter finish. Heavy carb. Lots of vanilla bean in finish but overall complex. Wishing for a heavier mouthfeel and bigger head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Grabbed these after work at the Jewel (only place open selling beer besides the 7-11 and gas station at 10:45 Sunday night). Deep brownish-black pour, off-white head with surprisingly nice retention. Nose is puffed wheat, malt syrup, vanilla extract, Heath Bar. Mouth is kind of watery, malt, toasted bread, cocoa puffs, touch of vanilla. Actually better than I expected. $7.99 for a sixer made this a decent value purchase.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Nice dark ruby brown color with a fairly small and quick dissolving tan head. Aroma has a little chocolate, a little roasted malt, and an odd vegetable quality. Initial taste is roasty with a hint of vanilla. Aftertaste is a bit watered down. A decent mouthfeel. Nothing amazing and definitely better porters available in this price range.
