Not sure how a brewery with such a good reputation can brew such a bad ale. I was expecting an American Porter with perhaps a note of Vanillia bean. What I got instead was a vinuous, funky beer with no Porter character at all.
The appearence was the best thing about this beer. It poured a deep brown, ruby red with plenty of fluffy head and lacing. The aroma was surprisingly tart, fruity, with sour wine notes. The taste was very strange. Funky and a bit vinuous -much like a white wine. No porter quality at all. I suppose the vanillia dominated the taste way too much. Very silky body -much like smooth creme. When combined with off flavors, the body was quite nasueating -much like creame gone bad. Couldn't finish.
