Beers just fall into place sometimes. This one did for sure. You see dear readers, the other day my Wife decided to continue doing work outside even though she had tweaked her knee earlier in the day. The end result of this was that she blew out her tweaked knee and injured the other. Great, I thought, now I will have to finish the work outside, and abandon all the great basement projects. I was only partially correct. Not only do I have to cater to the crippled Wife, I was sent to the store yesterday with a list. Yes, intrepid readers, me with a list, at the store. As I assembled the listed victuals, I like any self respecting male tripled the order with items seldom seen in my household. As I was searching for the last item on the list..."diet tooth paste" I found myself standing in front of the refrigerated six pack section. This was the only beer that didst look to be total crap so I bought it. Consumed during the microwave shelf installation project last evening. I believe that this may be my longest preamble to a beer rating to date. Bottle: Consumed directly from bottle. A strong sweet nose of sweet dark malt and a hint of vanilla. Body is slick and long lasting. Chocolate malt and milk swirl. Body seems to have two levels of increasing sweetness. Vanilla and a touch of caramel appear about half way thru the "sweet experience". Finish is abrupt. A decent sweet porter that barely stands apart from the rest.

For a porter itís rather light on flavor and heavy on bitterness. Not bad, just better options out there.

Dark red with a thick khaki foam. Aroma is a combination of vanilla, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor has a considerable coffee presence and bitterness with just a hint of the vanilla in the finish. Kind of distracting for me.

Draft. Dark brown/black with medium tan head. Aroma of malt sweetness, chocolate, and vanilla. Medium/light body, roasted malt, medium/heavy sweetness, strong vanilla, and a sweet finish. Too much vanilla and overly sweet.

Heard about this from a co-worker who hyped this beer up to me so i decided to try it. I found it to be thin and definitely did not live up to the hype flavor wise. While it was drinkable i was expecting a complex porter with pronounced vanilla and while i got hints of what i was looking for, I wanted the flavors to be bolder.

Bottle at San Juan. Dark brown color, small beige head. Aroma has rye bread and soya sauce. Light to medium-bodied. Cola-like sweetness, ryebread, hints of chocolate and vanilla. Quite light porter for this abv.
