look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Deep dark brown, almost close to black. Thin head that leaves quickly until just a thin layer left. Decent lacing. Aroma is malty with just a hint of vanilla, not as much vanilla as I expected. But of course I do not see any bottling date or drink by date. This beer I am sure is alittle older, as I have seen it on the shelf for some time. Taste is nice and smooth with a nice blast of vanilla and a Three Musketeers Like taste, interesting. Very drinkable and smooth, light bitterness, roasted malts and lot of sweetness upfront. Feels good going down, coats the tonque and is a little thick on the palate. Overall, a well balanced, lighter porter.

This is a great, well balanced porter. For some reason not nearly as good from a bottle as it is on tap. Get it at bar.
