3.63/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle.

A big four finger head of off white cream consistency, some snap in the bubbles. Fairly good retention on the head for this beer. Body is a little disturbing but not awful. A cloudy brown when finished but pours with a good solid chestnut out of the bottle. Some sticky ring lacing. Ok...

Bouquet... something is off. Weakened vanilla I'll give it that, but where is malt, coffee, roast anything? talk to me here... It's a very odd smell also, like watered down vanilla extract barely a hint of some chew bread. Ok they did manage some vanilla but it is weak and the rest on the nose is really missing hardly remarkable so far. It's as if the vanilla does not match on the nose with malt or the other ingredients that should go with this beer. It's a strange mix on the nose and it seems to just not meld well.

Taste... ok this is much better. Mild weakened root beer quality vanilla and bean feel. Wet though, but it has a nice simple supermarket simple bread chew. Has a soda characteristic though which seems real strange for a porter. Small mouthfeel no carbonation, and vanilla creeps up after a swallow for a short time.

Next to nothing for abv and it shows. This is like drinking soda beer or something, but it's a piece of cake. Might even make a simple easy weakened dessert beer for people with training wheels. But it's easily likeable to drink so I'll rate it good on those points, and not hard at all, a very sessionable drinking beer which some might find kind of fun.
