Dark, smooth, a little sweet but not to much so. Great vanilla flavor with no unpleasant aftertaste that vanilla beers can give you. Best vanilla porter
around!

Vanilla in beer is not good, it was a drain pour for me

What a nice beer. I had one of these for the first time at a bar in Philadelphia. I loved it right away. It is everything you love about a porter with the sweetness and creamy flavor of pure vanilla. I wasn't sure whether I was drinking a beer or having a vanilla float... Which I may try with this beer! I bet if you added some vanilla ice cream to this beer it would be damn good! Anyway unless your tongue is dead, you get really strong vanilla flavor and a smooth creamy mouthfeel. I thought it to be too sweet at first taste, more like a supper or after dinner beer, but three down, and they were still tasting great. I suggest trying this brew.

Look was good, not too much of a head. Taste was okay in my opinion. Middle of the line for me.

Look//Pours Dark like a brown ale. Not as dark as I thought it would be but not a deal breaker.

Smell//Vanilla and Coffee Hints. Smells a bit nutty and sweet. Has a good aroma about it

Taste//Tastes like a good Porter. Can taste the coffee and vanilla bean hints. Good lacing and a foamy tan head. I'll definitely be reaching for this beer again. Worth trying.

Not as stout as I prefer however a real easy drinking beer. I rated it overall a 4.75.
