Seriously strange stuff. Gets off to a good start by pouring very dark with a massive brown head. The main aroma reminds me of seltzer water (that's a bad sign) and a bit of coffee. There's a nasty chemical funk that I've never smelled in a beer before. Tastes nothing like a porter; flavors of a weak, day old coffee and stale chocolate, and that same chemical funk that's so prominent on the nose. The vanilla flavors are strongest on the front palate and then linger briefly on the finish. Body is waaay too carbonated. I'm wondering whether I simply got a bad or damaged bottle or if each of these traits is intentional...
