3.45/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a very deep brown nearly black color with a thin off white head. The head faded fast to give a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell was largely of roasted malt with a lighter ccoffee, nutty, and cocoa aromas. Mixed with these is a nice strong vanilla smell.
Taste – The taste begins largely of roasted malt with a lighter coffee flavor. Towards the middle, flavors of a light sweet caramel and some vanilla work their way into the flavor profile. The vanilla intensifies as the taste advances from the middle giving a rather strong flavor at the end. At the very end a bitter nutty flavor mixes with the bready roast vanilla flavor leaving a somewhat off bitter roasted flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The creaminess of the body is only slightly above average with a carbonation level that is just below average. The carbonation is very good for the more roasted malt and sweet vanilla flavors, but the body is a little thinner then would be desired.
Overall – It had some nice roasty and vanilla flavors, but left a somewhat more bitter flavor on the tongue at the end due to the nuttiness that came in. Good, but nothing I would really go to on a high occasion.
Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A very dark brown/black. Cannot see through it at all. A thick tan head that dissipates to a lacing.
Smell: A hint of vanilla, coffee, not very strong.
Taste: What it lacks in smell, it makes up for in taste. A strong porter taste with a touch of vanilla. Similar to coffee.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth and drinkable.
Overall: After a weak aroma, the taste saved the beer. A smooth, easily drinkable porter. Glad I had it.
Serving type: bottle
