12 0z. beer was poured into a pint glass
Appearance: The beer poured a one finger mocha head that has reduced quickly to about a quarter inch with some lacing. A very dark brownish black beer with no signs of carbonation.
Smell: All I cna pick up is some slight hints of maple, vanilla, and sweet malts. Not much else is going on there.
Taste: Ahh, that's what I was looking for in the smell. Vanilla is the main taste here, which is followed by sweet caramel malts and a bit of chocolate.
Mouthfeel: A good amount of carbonation there. Smooth and little chewy. Very easy to drink.
Overall: Not too shabby for a porter. I know there are better ones out there, but this one is very reasonable and probably would taste better on draft. Can't wait to order a pint when I am out in Denver for the Pats game in December.
Serving type: bottle

Nov 2014 - Rattle n Hum, on tap. Seems vanilla is farther back but still a worthy brew.
2013 At Rattle N Hum Caught this on the cusp of the season. Glad to see it. This is a fine brew. Balanced & polite. Not much is given away under the nose but the coffee, chocolate & of course the vanilla, jump out on the tongue. Subterfuge at it's most hospitable. 74F outside & it still has relevance. Go you Breckenridge.
2013 Rattle n Hum, NYC. On tap. Second try reveals serious vanilla followed by a nicely balanced taste & mouth feel. Well crafted. Demands a second helping & at a friendly 4.7 ABV, let's do it.
01/10/12 At Rattle N Hum, NYC. Nice. Not too sweet. Medium body. Not the winter warmer I expect from a porter, but worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap
