Pours a good sized head. Color is just barely permeable.
Smell is a bit sweet, with a lager like quality to them.
First sip is a bit lighter than I expected it to be. There are characteristics of vanilla, a bit of sweetness, but there seems a bit of emptiness to it that I just don't like. From everything on the bottle and the reputation of the brewery, I was expecting a real heavy-hitter. Then again, this is a porter and not a stout. Maybe I'm confusing my categories when reviewing this. As a porter, I guess I can learn to accept this, but as a beer, I would expect better.
