3.6/5 rDev -0.6%
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Black color. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Foremost, there's lots of vanilla. Grainy roastiness underneath. Coffee with cream. It almost smells like creme brulee. Very nice.
3.5 T: Grainy roastiness. Light coffee with cream. Plenty of vanilla. Tasty, but not as vibrant as the nose.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Crisp without much creaminess.
3.5 D: Good enough. Good flavors, but lacking depth and force.

Bought a six-pack of this beer at the grocery store. Haven't tried it before this, so this is a completely new review.
A: A great-looking dark brown beer when settled, with an amber pour (poured from bottle to glass).
S: More hoppy smell than initially expected, but slight hints of vanilla to mix in.
T: Lighter hops than the smell suggests, but still a little overpowering on the aftertaste. The vanilla is just as slight as in the smell, and the flavor has been overtaken by the hops. A little hint of caramel. Still great taste overall.
M: A little malty and very refreshing.
O: A malty and light beer to quench thirst; great taste, even though less vanilla flavor than a vanilla porter should have. This may be due to a flavor imbalance, in my opinion. Not too hoppy, but a good overall beer.

A- Pours a dark brownish black color with a creamy off-white head with great lacing and retention.
S- The aroma is roasted malts and some vanilla.
T- The taste is roasted malt, cocoa and a lot of vanilla flavors.
M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth.
O- Overall, not a bad porter. Definitely worth a try.
