Cola black appearance when poured into a pint glass with a small amount of head. Smells of roasted malts and vanilla. Vanilla hits you immediately but mellows out after a second or two, also note malty and brown sugar flavors too. To me its the perfect amount of vanilla, more present than most other vanilla porters but not overpowering. Very drinkable and I'd definetly get it again.

mug.

a - pours a translucent chestnut color with a thin cap of coarse tan foam. head calms quick and leaves a few spots of lacing here and there.

s - healthy dose of roasted malt, vanilla, and faint chocolate.

t - chocolate malt with a faint roastiness up front. vanilla makes an appearance but doesn't dominate the flavor palate. finishes bittersweet. not much going on here, but still tasty.

m - medium in body, slightly sticky, medium carbonation.

o - an easy drinking beer that never gets too sweet. i quite liked this one. lower abv means you could polish off a few no problem. got this in the sampler 12 pack. don't think i'd drink it often, but i'd certainly buy it again.

Poured into a pint glass

A: Pours deep brown and with a thin off-white head.

S: Vanilla beans, raisins, and a hint of caramel.

T: The vanilla is dominant, disappointedly so. There is also a hint of bread and malts.

M: Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.

O: This an enjoyable porter though I do wish that vanilla was not as strong.
