I received this beer on tap at a concert. This is my first vanilla porter so I wasn't completely sure what to expect. What I got was a stout-like coffee flavor with an aftertaste of vanilla. Strong coffee taste at the forefront with little aftertaste following the drink. I was ambitious enough to go back for seconds, however it being a heavy and rather dark beer, by the end of the second, I was ready to be done. Have a glass and treat yourself, however, be prepared to follow it up with something else that is lighter and more drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap

Very flavorful but it was a bit strong on the coffee and I didn't pick up many other favors. It is an okay porter with big flavor, mostly cofee, there really isn't anything terrible about it but I overall didn't enjoy this beer. I would much rather drink something a little weaker on the coffee and stronger on other favors.
