Glass Used: Tulip
Appearance: Black with a thick tan head. Head descends into a nice thin cap.
Smell: Vanilla, strong coffee, waifs of toffee and chocolate swirl around along with a light singe of alcohol.
Taste: Coffee, heavy roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate and a bit of the alcohol.
Mouthfeel:Mild carbonation, smooth and slick. Pleasant finish with a bit of burnt bitterness.
Overall: Pretty damn good porter. The aroma and finish hooked me for this one. Would definitely recommend if you are a fan of the style.

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
