Bottle poured into a pint glass.
Dark, dark brown, but not black.
This is a great tasting beer. The smell is fantastic also.
Very smooth, very little bitterness, but still not overly sweet.
Slight vanilla taste replaces the chocolate usually associated with porters.. but it isn't that strong... just different.
Not an overpowering coffee flavor, but it's there and very good.
I love this beer. My new favorite porter I think. Can't wait to try it on tap somewhere.

Awesome beer! I'm a huge vanilla fan so consider my review as biased because I'm also a huge dark beer fan. The color is almost black, a very deep brown with a descent white head, considerable retention and lacing.
I'm getting a kick out of the stuff written on the label. It is remarkable and definitely "partakable". Approachable would be another good describer. An original mountain recipe?
Full of chocolate flavor that follows a very dominate sweet rich vanilla dominator. Very good porter. Not watery, a good roasted profile that includes dark chocolates and a subtle coffee profile. Hops play background music in earthy tones. The scent is very roasted and very vanilla. The body is nice, thick, and creamy. Drink ability? I've found a new favorite.

I've tried to make a vanilla porter before, and it did not come out this good. Not anywhere close. This is what I was aiming for and I missed by a mile and a half.
This beer is excellent. It pours a perfect dark color, smells like real vanilla beans, and tastes like a perfect vanilla porter should. It's creamy and malty without being overpowering, the vanilla being a dominant flavor but with nary a trace of adjunct sugars or artificial flavors. If there are artificial flavors, they've done a bang-up job covering them up.
If you've never tried this vanilla porter, go do it. I guess if it has a flaw it would be the price, but nevermind that. It's worth it.

Had this on-tap at Fox and Hound. They have $2.50 pints on Tuesday's and I am a huge fan of trying their different beers because of that. I love this beer, it is flat out delicious and it is a beer that I find myself ordering again and again at this time of year. It is a great source to wash down wings with.
You don't smell the vanilla as strongly as you taste it. It is quite surprising how strong the vanilla is, but in a good way. I really enjoy this beer.
