First had: on tap at Washington House, Sellersville, PA
Notably, my experience with this beer on tap and in the bottle was considerably different. LOTS more character and flavor on tap, and this review is what that describes.
Dark brownish black, opaque, with little to no head. Rich vanilla, chocolate, and coffee in the nose. Very smooth tasting. The vanilla extract overpowers all, and in a good way, with not much else coming through except undertones of sweet dark malts and a bit of coffee and cocoa. Medium body, not very thick or heavy at all. Goes down smooth with no harshness, and little to nothing in the way of hoppiness or bitterness. Nice beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased a single 12 ounce bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance Looks like black coffee, minimal creamy slightly tan head
Smells like a vanilla java coffee drink, very good smell. Has some chocolate smell rolling around in there also.
Taste is very good! Vanilla lots of it! Java coco bean. Roasted malt. Burnt caramel ,
Mouth feel Slightly medium light , lots of tiny bubbles . Good beer mouth feel . after taste is pleasant , Kawfee. Vanilla sweetness coats your lips ,sorta sticky.
Overall I would buy a six pack of these for sure again. It is an easy drinking beer, Great for all us third shift Zombies who crave a beer with our breakfast. I think this is my second or third porter style beer, It would be a great beer to introduce to someone who has not Tried a Porter or a stout Before because it is pretty solid but not too overpowering in the flavor department which can turn some people off.
