Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Color is a very dark brown with a small, light brown head. Taste is reasonably dry for a porter and has a slightly low bitterness for a porter. Body is on the thin side for a porter; alcohol is fairly light; carbonation is average; finish is medium to long with vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Overall not bad but the base porter is a bit thin/weak; still some interest with the vanilla, chocolate and coffee.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 Really yummy porter. The vanilla added smooths out this porter and makes it complex in flavor and simple in enjoyment. Really good beer. Actually on second taste on tap, its a little too spicy for my liking.

A decent sweet porter with notes of vanilla balanced by the burnt, roasted coffee beans.

Pours opaque dark brown with hint of red, small tan head that goes quickly but leaves some skim. Nose is coffee, roast malt, roast nuts, biscuit. Palate has vanilla in and out, sometimes coming through as itself, or at least vanilla wafers, and other times creating more of a cocoa effect with the coffee. Nothing objectionable in the flavors, but they dont always seem to blend well. Light-medium body, fine for a porter, but theres a lot of competition in this part of the marketplace.

Andrew196 (1809) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Dark with a flimsy beige head. Plain roast aroma and some pepper. Weird flavor on this guy, some earthy tones, more roast, notes of cola in the end. Like a crisp, watery Guinness. Tastes homebrewish to me.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottled. Pours very dark brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma of toasted pecans, chocolate syrup, light roasted coffee, and a touch of smoke - all in all, quite pleasant. Roasty flavor up front with faint touches of vanilla. Middle has some slightly stale bread, though the finish is rich with coffee roast. Mouthfeel is a little light, but otherwise I thought this was quite tasty!

zubblwump (83) - Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2016
Pours dark with a quickly dissipating head. Strong chocolate smell. First taste is all coffee, and doesnt waver much. I didnt really get vanilla. It felt kind of "thin" for a porter. But it was smooth, with no bitterness. Better than I expected.
