Appearance - The beer poured a murky black color with a modest mocha colored head.

Smell - The aroma was a pleasant vanilla malty aroma. The aroma is not overly sweet, but certainly seems to suggest a dessert beer.

Taste - My first impression on drinking the beer was to think of vanilla coke. Notes of malt, vanilla, dark chocolate, and a little dark fruit was present. The chocolate evolved to be more dry in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - For the style, I thought the beer was a little thin. Taking into consideration all the extras in this porter, the thinness is a little surprising.

Overall - I enjoyed the beer and would certainly drink it again. I am not certain that I would seek the beer.
