A 22-oz. bomber purchased in Boulder, Colorado three weeks ago. Cracked at my house in Albuquerque.

A- Engine oil black, well-carbonated, opaque, khaki-colored head that's pillowy, frothy and persistent

S- chocolate, vanilla, roasty, malty, hints of coffee

T- vanilla, coffee, subtle smokiness, roasted malt, brown sugar, sweetness

M- Smooth, creamy but slightly light-bodied, lingering sweetness

Overall, a tasty porter with a well-balanced flavor profile and mix of characteristics. I enjoyed this.

Smooth nose, no over the top up front smoky overkill, nice mild vanilla. Middle offers just a touch more smoke but it fades quickly. Little more vanilla lingers as it goes down with a slight tinge of carbonation on back of tongue. Best vanilla porter I've had.

This is without a doubt one of my favorite dark beers that I've discovered since moving to Colorado. The Vanilla Beans really shine without being overwhelmingly sweet. I'm typically a hoppy beer drinker, but I enjoy this beer just about every weekend.

A: poured into a pint glass to a black beer with some ruby hilights and a half finger of dense tan head that retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of vanilla and chocolate with a little roast malt but the nose is mostly dominated by vanilla
T: taste is vanilla and roasted malt with some chocolate. swallow is roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla
M: lighter side of medium on the palate with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Overall this beer has great flavors and balance. this bottle isn't the freshest but it still has a good bit of vanilla flavor. It's definitely enjoyable and a good representation for the style.
