I picked this up because I like vanilla, and I like porter. oops!
Pours rather typical for a porter, not quite as dark, with a little bitty head, and bubbles on the inside of the glass, like a coke.
Smell...Yuck! Smells like soured milk. This thing stunk so bad my wife smelled it six feet away!
Taste very sweet, very vanilla with a harsh, metallic aftertaste at first but starts to take on the spoiled milk taste as the drink progesses.
Mouthfeel is probobly the best thing this beer has going for it. It's soft and smooth enough, but I really wish this one was thin so it would go away.
Normally, I can choke anything down, but this one I had to pitch into the yard...I hope it doesn't kill the grass.
I really wanted to like this brew, maybe it was a bad bottle, but this one was just plain nasty. I've got 5 more, but I'm afraid to even open another. I"ll re-review, if I get the guts to try it again...with different results.
