Pours pitch black with a short-lived tan head. Leaves a bit of lacing, with no real head retention. Smell is promising although subdued. Normally, my complaint with flavored beers is that the flavor is too obtrusive but with this one its just the opposite. The vanilla, which would do wonders to balance the dark, sharp porter flavor, is not pronounced enough to do the job. A good flavor, and a decent porter, although perhaps in not succeeding as a flavored porter it is left not trying enough to be a good porter. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit...gritty? Not actual sediment but just a vague feeling it leaves me with. Drinkable, it goes down easily and more could follow. All in all, nothing spectacular but not too much to complain about & a great combination of flavors, if not quite balanced.
