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

4/5  rDev +10.5%

Serving:12oz bottle

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
