look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours dark brown, almost black with a rather flat brown head

Smell: A few notes of sweet chocolate, fruity

Taste: Sweet caramel malt with vanilla on the front, only a slight bit of bitterness in the middle, finish is of faint chocolate and again a hint of vanilla

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation and a body that's lighter than expected

Overall, the taste is pretty good and I'd certainly drink it again, the aroma and appearance just bring it down a bit.

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.
