look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Dark brown in color, but a good amount of light passes through as poured. The head is off-white and fades rather quickly. Good lacing.
S: I barely get any scent at all from this. It has a very very very faint roasted barley scent, and what smells like spoiled milk...but very faint.
T: Huh...it has an interesting flavor. Well it really does taste a whole lot better than it smells. I get this cream-vanilla flavor, but not a whole lot in the porter department. The beer has a lot of graininess (flavor, not texture) which is good.
M: The mouthfeel is medium-light. It has a lot of backbone for a sweet, light beer. Carbonation is pretty good. The beer is a bit sticky.
O: Overall I wouldn't really recommend the beer. It's not bad, but it's just not really good. It's not much of a porter, but it has some nice vanilla flavors. I guess you could just call it a vanilla beer and be done with it. I would rate it below average if it weren't for the vanilla.
