A dark brown beer with a smallish off-white head, decent lacing. Very faint aromas aren’t too promising..not picking up a whole lot of anything really, particularly in the way of vanilla or the typical roasted notes of a good porter. A little bit of sweet malt and traces of coffee.

Flavor is pretty light as well. Very faint in terms of the vanilla, and not much roast, chocolate or coffee either. Light, watery, vaguely nutty, just traces of vanilla and coffee.

Easy to drink, with low ABV, clean finish, medium carbonation. Pretty disappointing, I’d say, although I didn’t really have high hopes for this to begin with. Lacking in just about everything I love in the porter style. I’d almost say it would be hard to identify it as a porter if tasted blind, so definitely loses points based on its lack of adherence to the style. Won’t be back when there’s still so much more to try.

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

A- Pours a dark brown with a sand colored head.

S- Chocolate, Coffee and a scent of vanilla

T- Roasted notes with HINTS of vanilla bean and a light body feel. This would be a great introductory to people wanting to try dark beers (i.e. porters and stouts).

Food Pairing- Pork chops with apple chutney on top.
