A- Very dark brown body, with a bubbly light tan head. Head fades rather quickly and leaves a thin layer of bubbles along with some lacing.

S- Roasted malt, vanilla, caramel. Nothing overwhelming, but nice notes of each.

T- Pretty good flavor. Vanilla comes through along with roasty malts and a hint a caramel malt. Again, nothing overwhelming, but nice flavors. Very balanced and easy to drink.

M- Medium bodied, medium-low carbonation, smooth and creamy

O- Nice sessionable porter that is easy on the roasted flavor.

Got this in a custom 6-pack.
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - A dark brown with smallish head.

S - Toasty, almost burnt scent. Some definite coffee and malt notes, can't really smell much vanilla though, which is surprising considering the name of the brew.

T - Tastes similar to the smell. Majority is coffee and malt, slight hint of vanilla.

M - Some carbonation, but not too much. Pretty smooth after setting in my glass and warming for a minute. Very clean aftertaste, which is nice.

Summary - I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed in this porter. I thought I'd be getting a little vanilla kick somewhere in here, but there is almost nothing - the memories of the drink are of burnt coffee, which is never good. I'm thinking I will try it again in the future. For right now though, it's very average.
