Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy and dry. Dry dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Dry dark chocolate. Light bitterish coffee. Whisper of smoke. Dry finish. Standard vanilla porter, lacking the normal Maine fairy dust.

Bottle at home in London with Paul. Pours brown with a small, beige foam head. Burnt cocoa, roasty malt aroma. Medium sweet flavor, light vanilla notes, cocoa, light burnt earth bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some dusty cocoa to finish, some lightly roasted malts, light toasted grass, subtle burnt sugar. Some sweet tobacco. A really nice, easily drinkable stout. I like it.

brokensail (11540) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours dark brown, almost black, in color with a small off-white head. Roast is the dominant aroma here with a fair amount of chocolate and cocoa. Smells a bit...dusty? Some hints of vanilla, but not as much as I would have expected. The flavor is a touch watery and thin. Does have a nice chocolate and vanilla character, though. Good, but could have been better.

Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours dark brown with a transient tan head. Aroma of vanilla and perhaps chocolate. Med body. Flavor is earthy vanilla - really suggesting bourbon! Then chocolate. Hint of coffee.
