Fantastic coffee flavor, the vanilla is either very subtle or I just can't pick it up, which is fine because I don't think it's even needed. Awesome Porter, one of my new favorites.

Big oily roasted coffee flavor. Hints of vanilla are mild. Very drinkable. Head is thin but holds to side of glass well. Love it.

Pours a rich looking dark brown with a massive creamy light brown head that spilled over. (My bad. I poured a little too fast) Thick foamy lacing persists. Great complex aroma of dark sugars, roasted malts, coffee, caramel, raisins and nut cake. Taste of sweet roasted malts with a slightly dry bitter sweet and slight alcohol finish. As the bottle indicates, other strong flavors are coffee and vanilla extract. Feel is full bodied, hearty and robust. Minimal carbonation helps keep the flavors intact and makes this a great brew to warm you in the winter and/or drink with dessert. A thoroughly enjoyable brew and one of my favorite examples of porter!
