3.38/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

APPEARANCE: Dark brown, nearly black, but when held up to light a reddish-brown shines through. A nice half-inch head rests and remains on top for a while. Pretty decent head retention. Lacing is good, thick layers cover 50% of the back of the glass and much of the sides as well.

SMELL: Very faint aroma, but what is there is pleasant. A mild roastiness along with vanilla undertones. If only the smell were stronger.

TASTE: Again, the flavor is pretty mild here. It’s good, just not very intense. This beer will offend only those most averse to dark beers. As the name and smell would suggest the flavor is nice and roasty. A solid vanilla flavor backs it up and becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. A very slight coffee-like bitterness finishes each sip.

MOUTHFEELL: A very light sparkle compliments the otherwise smooth mouthfeel. Medium-bodied, but not as big as some other vanilla porters I’ve had.

OVERALL: This is a perfect gateway beer. Your friend that only drinks Guinness might see the light in something like this. Obviously not the same style, but something a little more flavorful that they could get into. This will never be my go to, but certainly a good fall back beer.
