Appearance - poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Dark chocolatey brown color. Tan brown head, two fingers. Last for quite a bit. A lot of lacing on the glass.
Smell - man this is complex and amazing. Roasted malt obviously. Can smell a strong vanilla hint.
Taste - wow. Really haven't had a beer like this before. Really quite amazing. The coffee-vanilla blend is fantastic.
Mouthfeel - smooth and creamy
Overall - an amazing porter. One of my favorites for this style now.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
