12 oz. bottle poured into a Libby stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with some ruby notes. Not the darkest porter. Minimal lacing and head. Carbonation somewhat heavy.

Aroma: The vanilla is there in noticeable amounts, but it's not overpowering. Dark chocolate, coffee beans and roasted malt are also present.

Taste: This beer has a pleasant, mellow taste that is somewhat similar to black French vanilla coffee. There's some nice roasty notes as well, along with a detectable chocolate accent. Good stuff.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth. Dense, but not thick. Not as light as the light-ish color (for the style) would suggest.

Overall: This is a very nice porter that dark beer drinkers will enjoy. Works best as a dessert beer, I think, because of the vanilla and chocolate notes, though it isn't overwhelmingly sweet. A good find for any fan of domestic porters.
