vanilla is present but not dominant, other porter flavors are a bit subdued but this is a very nice beer.

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.

Great porter. Nice dessert beer. Every time I drop by the drydock tasting room my wife demands I pick up some vanilla porter.

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.
