This vanilla porter was really good. I had it on tap at the tasting room, as opposed to other Dry Dock beers I've reviewed that all came in cans as part of a sampler pack. Maybe that made a little bit of difference, I don't know, but I liked the overall flavor of this beer better than their others. I'd get this one again.

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.

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.
