A very delicious beer! Very smooth taste, no bitterness. Almost like drinking an actual java. A little filling, but that's to be expected from a porter.A nice social beer or during meal beer. Great work Atwater!!! I look forward to trying more of your craft beers.

A: dark brown, thin fizzy head. Transmits light.

S: sweet vanilla cake batter/frosting. Nothing else.

T: bad. Super sweet, sugary cloying vanilla. No coffee whatsoever. Tastes really artificial. Like a rubber band dipped in vanilla and sugar.

M: thin, watery, not satisfying at all.

Bad beer. Would never have again. Too bad...a vanilla java porter done correctly would have really been a great brew to try.

I don't know how they did it but they snuck 6% alcohol into something that tastes more like soda pop than beer. Which in itself isn't such a turnoff, but the flavors seem so fake and off. So much promise in the name, so little delivery. Though my wife (who doesn't really drink beer) loves it, so that's a plus.
