UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 cerveja do tipo Stout, mas nao é amarga. deixa um final suave na boca, mas ao mesmo tempo forte perfeita para dias frios

If beer is food, Dark Side is the main course. This is vanilla with a delightful char flavor - as if the beans were skewered and roasted by hand over a camp fire. With a stout-like texture for the mouth and controlled bitterness, but with all the aroma you’re seeking (when served from a glass, of course), Dark Side is grand alone - and great with many full-bodied foods. Grab two Dark Side Vanilla Porters, dark bread and "stinky" cheese and you’ve got a fine meal!

Great local porter, not quite as good as Breckenridge VP but still a very good local brew.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 B+. Pours a black color with khaki head. Smooth and flavorful. The vanilla really comes through and compliments the porter nicely.

Nice. Mild. This is a very good and under rated beer. Had in Chicago at a pizza place. Nice beer.
