I purchased this bottle at Wegmans, poured chilled from the bomber in a tulip.

The color is black with opaque clarity and 2 finger frothy tan head with fine bead.The smell is excellent with vanilla cream and slight roast with a mild cocoa accent and subtle caramel aroma. The feel is creamy with medium carbonation and light roastiness with a subtle sweet then dry finish.

The taste is good with porter qualites coming through and some mild vanilla creaminess in the taste with a subtle caramel mix of flavors combined and semi-sweet in the finish. Overall this is a very good milk stout/porter with an appropriately tasty amount of vanilla to smooth the body -very drinkable
