look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Brownish colour with ruby highlights, ring of white head, little lace. Smell is roasted and malty, lots of milk chocolate, vanilla and bakers chocolate. Taste is pretty similar to chocolate milk, vanilla and roast malt present as well, mild sweetness and a light bitterness. Medium carbonation, light body with watery points. Nothing really stands out about this, fairly one dimensional porter, could take it or leave it really.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into 12oz pint glass.

S: Chocolate, toast, hint of vanilla.

A: Pours dark brown with thick tan head, whittles down to a rocky head with some great lacing on the glass.

T: Toffee, a bit milky, can't really taste vanilla.

M: Creamy, rich, very sessionable.

O: Pretty decent through and through. But by having the title of "Vanilla Porter", I was really expecting to be able to smell or taste vanilla. I was disappointed that I couldn't. They only hit half of the brew on the head; the Porter part. Other than that it's a great session beer or after dinner beer.
