Saw this in the beer and wine store near my house. I was in the mood for a porter and decided to give it a shot. Here goes:

A: The best thing about the beer. Pours a dark amber with a beautiful, foamy head. The head lingers on for minutes and produces great lacing. Great protein content despite being a lighter beer.

S: OK, not as much vanilla as I would've hoped, but not bad. Don't get me wrong; you can still smell vanilla but it isn't the heavy, oaken smell that I'm used to from beers of this style. No hops, lots of roasted, heavily-kilned malts.

T: Good. The roasted malts predominant, but they're quite mellow. This beer doesn't have any of the coffee bitterness typical of most stouts and porters. Rather, the malt imparts a nice chocolatey taste with a hint of vanilla bean (again, nothing severe). Very toasty and perfect for casual drinking. No hops and no bready notes from yeast.

M: Pleasant. Very little alcohol but still thick (probably because of the protein content, as evidenced by the stupendous head).

O: A pleasant porter. Recommended but nothing special.
