3.9/5 rDev -1%
Thanks to SteveO for this one!
Pours an effervescent mahogany with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Minimal head retention & lacing
S: Carob, vanilla & coffee
T: Vanilla & carob, some roastyness & dryness up front. Dryness & coffee, plus more vanilla as this warms. Finishes with roastyness, vanilla, a touch of woody hops & coffee
MF: Medium bodied with smooth carbonation
A drinkable & enjoyable porter, but I've had a few that best it, the best thing about this how natural the vanilla tastes. I've had plenty where it seems like extract is badly added...

3.66/5 rDev -7.1%
Great mound of fluffy tan head grown on thin black fluid. Lacing is voluptuous.
Vanilla , smoke, nutty, milky, chocolate. Slightly too hazelnutty.
Thin, sweet, underwhelming. Carbonation is much lighter than I expected. Milky, nutty, vanilla is not in sugary quantities, Chocolate flavor is dry and lasting and well buried in the vanilla. Nuts are nice, just not hazel varieties. (see aroma, too much hazelnut)
Cheers, this one is worthy @ $7/22oz. Recommended for the hazelnut lover.
