Bottle. Pours a transparent red-brown with a light, fine-grained cream head -- looks for all the world like root beer. Mild nose is vanilla, coffee, cocoa, smoke; what there is of it, that is. Light and sweet; mostly vanilla and mild coffee, with a touch of baking chocolate. Mouthfeel is very smooth despite the weakness of the body. Its all right, but it doesnt stand out from the crowd of mediocrity.

Tap. Started out with such potential. Nice brown amber color. Decent head and some lace. Aroma, was wonderful. Oaky vanilla. But the taste was a let down. Blend of favors was really good just weak and watery.

Beers just fall into place sometimes. This one did for sure. You see dear readers, the other day my Wife decided to continue doing work outside even though she had tweaked her knee earlier in the day. The end result of this was that she blew out her tweaked knee and injured the other. Great, I thought, now I will have to finish the work outside, and abandon all the great basement projects. I was only partially correct. Not only do I have to cater to the crippled Wife, I was sent to the store yesterday with a list. Yes, intrepid readers, me with a list, at the store. As I assembled the listed victuals, I like any self respecting male tripled the order with items seldom seen in my household. As I was searching for the last item on the list..."diet tooth paste" I found myself standing in front of the refrigerated six pack section. This was the only beer that didst look to be total crap so I bought it. Consumed during the microwave shelf installation project last evening. I believe that this may be my longest preamble to a beer rating to date. Bottle: Consumed directly from bottle. A strong sweet nose of sweet dark malt and a hint of vanilla. Body is slick and long lasting. Chocolate malt and milk swirl. Body seems to have two levels of increasing sweetness. Vanilla and a touch of caramel appear about half way thru the "sweet experience". Finish is abrupt. A decent sweet porter that barely stands apart from the rest.

Dark brown with some crimson highlights and a tan head. The aroma has slightly roasted vanilla with some mild coffee. It has a medium body with sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with coffee flavor and a dry finish.

A pretty straightforward porter with vanilla character. A bit thin, but definitely has drinkibility.

Pours dark brown. Flavor really throws you with this one -- it smells like a pretty standard porter, with some chocolate and darker malts (although there really isnt much there) -- but the flavor brings in root beer and vanilla cream soda. It has a really weird artificial sweetness that doesnt do it any good. This tastes more like a novelty beverage youd get for a college party than it does like something they put a good amount of effort into. The vanilla is too sweet and artificial, and doesnt add much complexity. Really more like a soda than a beer.

Bottle, pours dark brown with a tan head, slightly bitter chocolate flavor with some coffee and a hint of vanilla, a little thin but better than I expected
