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.

Poured a black body with two finger tan head that dies slow with no lace. Aroma ranges from coffee, vanilla, espresso, milk/lactic qualities, hints of milk chocolate. For a heavy beer the alcohol is hidden and the beer is rather light and smooth. More sweet than dry as the roasted coffee notes are easily noticed but the beer seems to slightly dominated by milk/vanilla sweetness. An enjoyable beer on its own or as dessert.
Serving type: on-tap
