Poured from the 12 oz, bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Clear dark ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded quickly to thin surface foam and some spotty lacing.

s: Slight vanilla.

t: Vanilla over a medium dark malt base followed by hop bite on the sides of the tongue. Vanilla and smoke in the aftertaste.

m: Medium, very smooth.

o: Easy drinking and highly sessionable. First beer I have had which had vanilla in its title and actually delivered significant vanilla flavor. Since vanilla is a personal favorite flavor, I'm liking this porter a lot, although the more common porter smokliness or cold coffee or dark chocolate tones which are mostly absent or masked here are fine too.
