Well balanced and not overpowering - surprisingly drinkable for a flavored brew. Some have reported this is artificial and cloying - but I did not find it that way.
It had a weak, tan head that did not last long. (My biggest complaint). Just a bit of lacing on the glass. The color was a classic dark, rich mahogany brown. Mild vanilla-caramel nose and a sweetish malt taste with undertones of caramel, vanilla and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is very smooth. It has a gentle finish and hints of coffee in the nose on the swallow. Overall a nice, balanced brew

A-Pours a dark, clear brown. Soft head. Dots of lacing.

S-Smells a bit awkward. A bit of odd mustiness. There is also a serious dosage of artificial vanilla. Vanilla extract. Not much depth behind the vanilla either. The Porter aspects of the nose are silent here.

T-More of the same. A bit of odd must then a blast of cloying, artificial vanilla. As if I took a baby sip of vanilla extract I swear. Cheap vanilla bean ice cream. Maybe a hint of flat cola.

M-Light bodied. A bit sticky. The taste lingers.

O/D-Not a fan of this.
