A ton of vanilla, light roasted malts, and a hint of chocolate. Had this on tap after eddy fitz and i should have just stuck with the latter. Not bad though, just doesn't have a chance next to the best

A: deep brown - almost black; 11 finger medium brown head that reeded slowly to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: vanilla is most prominent, with deeply roasted grain and coffee behind it;

T: follows the nose; light bitterness on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: not all that complex; very thin for the style; also a little light on the bitterness for my taste;

Pours dark and thick into a snifter. A half inch of creamy head lingers. It smells delicious and the taste matches.Not sure why the consensus rating is so low. Solid coffee porter
