Very easy drinking porter. Nice full flavors but really well balanced. Has a great smell to it also, I can really smell the vanilla. But has a more heavier coffee bean flavor on the end of the sip. I'd highly recommend giving this a try if you haven't had this one before and are a fan of porters.

A - Poured with a brown body that showed some ruby highlights...the head was white in color and stood one finger tall...after a few seconds the head had completely disappeared and not much lacing was left behind
S - The vanilla is noticeable but never comes across as too dominating or too sweet...there is a roasted malt presence and some chocolate that takes that sweet edge down a few notches
T - Everything carries over from the nose...the vanilla actually starts off subtle, but grows as the beer has a chance to warm up...the roasted malt and chocolate balance things out as the come out in the middle of the beer...the chocolate flavors provide a hint of bitterness and that plays a big part in balancing out the sweetness...the dark chocolate and vanilla team up for the finish
M - Medium bodied...it's a little lighter than I'd like, but that also helps the drinkability...I would have liked a little more creaminess
D - The vanilla was not hard to find in this one...it paired well with the porter base and the low ABV and lighter body made this one very easy to drink

Appearance: at first pour, somewhat decent creamy head.
Very dark. After just a few sips the head was completely gone.
Smell: very mild. Coffee and vanilla.
Taste: Bam! Vanilla. First sip was strong vanilla with light coffee undertones. Surprisingly not as thick as I'd imagined. By about the third sip, the flavors swap. Vanilla becomes very light with a sweet coffee becoming the most dominant.
Mouthfeel:Very light and a little sweet.
Drinkability: Not too filling. I think if I drank two in a row, the vanilla would be too much.
Serving type: bottle
