Quite a nice porter. Pours a good looking deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of vanilla and chocolate milk, hint of coffee. Taste is more chocolate milk, lots of vanilla, and a smooth finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

"This brew is about the equal of the brown. It doesn’t stand out in style at all like the brown did, but I generally like the slightly more robust character of a porter more than a brown. decent feel and a good dose of dark malts. Pretty simple and straight forward american porter."
