A - Thin brown pour to black in glass. Very light carbonation though there is a little white lacing on the edges.
S - Faint nutty with some chocolate notes. There is sweetness there as well but I can not tell if it is vanilla or not. It's nice but very subdued.
T - Vanilla/toffee with chocolate. The vanilla hits at the very front and and very end of with the chocolate and malt between. It's pleasant while it lasts but not strong. The problem comes that after a few sips the tastes fades away. I have a feeling this would be best enjoyed with food that resets the palate.
M - Light. For my taste it is too light but drinkable. A bit of soft carbonation is present as well.
O - It's a good choice for a session porter but the taste is forgettable even while drinking. I really wanted to like it but in the end I felt it was just "OK".

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.
