Whoa this is a chocolate coffee vanilla bomb! Good vt porters are usually much harder to attain than this. I will continue to buy this for as long as I can find it!

A- Pours black with a light beige head.
S- Coffee and chocolate upfront, smells like really good beans.
T- Not as bold as the aroma, slight bitterness from the coffee gives way to a light kiss of coco and it that remains briefly after each sip. As it warms the chocolate flavor is turned up. Light vanilla on the back of the tongue.
M- Starts out creamy then the carbonation helps coax all the flavors through out
O- Tasty coffee porter, reminds me a lot of a Jr breakfast stout.

Look: Black. No light shines though. Just perfect pitch black. With a gentle pour, not much head in generated.

Smell: Dark roasted coffee. Dark chocolate. This smells like pure coffee. Likely the strongest coffee aroma I've ever smelled in a beer. It might be stronger than the coffee I make in the morning. I'm not picking up much more in the aromas other than coffee.

Taste: The coffee flavor is very upfront, but not as strong in the flavor as the aroma would suggest. Certainly some dark chocolate flavors. I'm not getting much vanilla.

Feel: Very smooth, mild carbonation, and medium-full bodied.

Overall: This was always one of my favorite coffee beers. glad to see it back on the shelves. I say this a lot but, it's a good "go-to" beer.

Very good, but wow, that is a lot of coffee flavor for the non coffee person. Overwhelming coffee kept it from being outstanding.
