Dark opaque color, with 1/2" tan head at pour settling to clean face with ring around edge of glass. Dark mahogany highlights around edge of glass. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma, vanilla follows closely, not too much though. Medium mouthfeel, has a slight thickness to it. Malt and chocolate present in beginning. Really find the vanilla on the end and especially the aftertaste. Moderate carbonation. Pick up some dark fruit notes as beer warms. Vanilla and roast picks up with warmth as well. Pretty drinkable for a porter. Sometimes the vanilla seems to hit at a weird point during the drink that strikes me the wrong way, usually in aftertaste or end, as the beer warms the vanilla seemed to show up more in the middle and more balanced in the aftertaste.

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.
