Vanilla porters. Interesting, I guess. Not here though. Strong vanilla extract mixed with coffee. Send it to the showers folks!

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This stuff is undrinkable. The sour/offensive/artificial vanilla nose became irritatingly worse as it warmed, I had to move it further from my face. Medicinal, and rough, like eating a Stridex facewash pad after adding a drop of fake vanilla on it. They can't be serious here, I'm guessing it's a "Candid Camera" style trick for some tiny Michigan Public Access cable station show.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sweet fermented vanilla aroma, medicinal and nasty! Flavor reminds me of a medicine they used to have circa 1973, but I (thankfully) forget it's name - whoa! Achieved "total heaviosity" in it's still, lazy, yucky-ass grossness in the sampler cup - where it should have stayed. Enjoyed in good company (hoppygrrrl, jaymobrown and JoeM).
