Tennessee

3.4/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear deep, dark brow with a thick one finger light tan head. Extremely good head retention and it also has a nearly solid layer of lacing all the way around the glass.

Aroma has loads of vanilla along with caramel, some light roasted coffee and just a hint of smoke. Not bad but it is a little bit on the weak side.

Lots more vanilla in the flavor bordering on too much. There is almost a bit of a medicinal note to it that is off-putting. More lightly roasted coffee, caramel, and a bit of smoke. Mouthfeel is pretty light but silky with a pretty good dose of stickiness on the finish.

Overall, this beer is definitely drinkable and not bad but is just lacking that something to make it great. Glad I got to try it but not really something I will be seeking out.

New Jersey

3.54/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A very dark brown/black. Cannot see through it at all. A thick tan head that dissipates to a lacing.

Smell: A hint of vanilla, coffee, not very strong.

Taste: What it lacks in smell, it makes up for in taste. A strong porter taste with a touch of vanilla. Similar to coffee.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and drinkable.

Overall: After a weak aroma, the taste saved the beer. A smooth, easily drinkable porter. Glad I had it.
