Bottle. Pours dark brown. Small tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate. Flavor of vanilla and chocolate with coco on the back end. Low carbonation. Very dry finish. Overall a decent beer. Biggest negative is that its a bit thin.

Aroma is a sweet chocolate malt. Taste is a little bit of toasted malt with some coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Overall good just not enough flavor.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: deep dark maroon color, clear, practically black, thin tan head that fades quickly, laces poorly
Aroma: chocolate, coffee, kind of faint for a porter
Taste: coffee, chocolate, perhaps a hint of plum, not much bitterness, but there is some
Palate: lively carbonation, very faint bitter aftertaste that lingers for a bit
Overall: not much to this beer, it’s kind of a weak and uncomplex version of a porter, nothing too great about this beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark walnut brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Aroma is nutty sweetness and roasted malt. Flavor is dark roasted malt, caramel and vanilla lingering all the way through the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation and an almost syrupy mouthfeel. It’s a good seasonal if a bit overpowering with the vanilla.

Funny, I love vanilla, and I love a good, malty porter. They are birds of a feather, sweet, dark, aromatic, but somehow they never work together for me. No different in this one, I keep thinking, "what would it taste like without the vanilla?

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Slightly spicy watery and bland porter with a touch of vanilla. Very light mouthfeel. Not offensive but forgettable.
