Sleek dark brown color with a slight creamy light khaki colored froth... A terrific mix of vanilla, coffee and roasted malt dominate the aroma... The vanilla dominates the palate but it never comes close to approaching cloying... Medium bodied... Goes down smoothly... A very nice easy drinking well rounded brew...

Sweet, creamy head. Vanilla flavor is present and the main focus, but not overwhelming. Could benefit from more carbonation, but that might be my personal taste and not a reflection of the porter style.

A: 3.25 - Pours a very thin head that immediatley dissipates. Dark with an amber tint, leaves no lacing.

S: 3.25 - You pick up on the vanilla, though it is not as strong as I was expecting. Roasted malt.

T: 3.75 - Tasty beer! Strong taste of roasted malt and vanilla. The vanilla lingers for awhile after. Also a little bit of dark fruit.

M: 3.5 - Thin with low carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: 3.43 - Overall a nice porter, though not my favorite.
