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.
