Smells like coffee. Juicy like a berry. Little smokey flavor. Roasted notes, not a lot of vanilla but that’s prolly good

Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Flavor is very similar. Has a lively body, though thin. This is quite good.

Draft to taster at Paw Paw. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and mild vanilla. Tastes like it smells with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of bitterness, but not unpleasantly so. Enjoyable, but a full one would be plenty.

Bottle thanks to BO. Deep brown with a beige head. Light malt and mineral aroma. Chocolaty and dry. Not much vanilla.

12 oz bottle my brother brought back for me on a recent trip to Michigan. Pours a dark brown with a two-finger light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, toasted malt, vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt. Quick, dry finish of malt, caramel, and a bit of hop bitterness. Medium bodied, thin texture, moderately high carbonation. Very smooth, well balanced and an easy drinker.

Decent chocolate aroma with hints of of sweetness, nice dark color which you would expect in a porter. Smooth, lighter flavor with a somewhat lighter body and texture for the style. Easy to drink, but I prefer bolder porters.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma mainly of vanilla and roast. Flavor was a bit too sweet vanilla sky bar, chocolate and roast. Decent.

Tap. Black-brown. Spotted lacing. Slightly smokey nose. Tastes more of burnt malt and a touch of coffee than vanilla.
