Side poured with standard vigor from the bottle into the Deschutes goblet.

Appearance - Pours just like you would expect a nice porter to pour. Dark brown to black in color, one finger head that dissipates relatively quickly (within 1/4 of the drink) and leaves little lacing.

Smell - You can smell the vanilla along with traditional porter scents: malts, a bit of chocolate, and some roastiness. Smell is relatively subdued.

Taste - This is where the brew really starts to lose me. Has a decent vanilla flavor at the front of the drink, with the rest of the flavors kicking in towards the finish. Roasted malts, a bit of chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Disappointing. Watery, which is what I do not want out of a porter. Kind of a funny aftertaste as well, but the thin character of the beer is certainly a big downfall.

Overall - The presentation is probably the best part, but thats pretty hard to screw up, especially with a porter. From there, the brew goes steadily downhill, culminating in what tastes like what would be a decent porter but is so watery it ruins it.
