Pours a dark brown with a reddish hue. There's a soft, off white head that has good retention. The nose has a rich vanilla aroma with some underlying roasty notes. The taste opens up with an intense vanilla flavor followed by a complex blend of flavors including toffee, coffee, roasted malt, and nuts. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, and well carbonated.

This is a very nice beer. It's complex, balanced, and very enjoyable. The initially the vanilla is so intense and the body so creamy it's like drinking vanilla ice cream. Then, the vanilla settles and the other flavors come to fore where this becomes a very complex, traditional porter. It's definitely worth a try.
