look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Clear, chestnut brown, with a very thin head that vanished quickly without a hint of lacing.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, raisins. Some toasted grain and a hint of cocoa.

T: Slightly sweet, slightly acrid gain malts. Some coffee and dark fruit appear later. Bitterness is really mild in the finish. Vanilla is present start to finish, but not in an overwhelming way.

M: Thinner than I expected (I won't go as far as saying "watery"), and pretty low on the carbonation. Certainly out of proportion to the color and style.

O: Just OK. Smelled and tasted fairly good, but lacked the punch of a real porter, and the vanilla contributed very little. I'm not regretting buying it, but neither will I return for another.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Good vanilla flavor but not over-powering sweet vanilla and tends to drop off a little towards the end of the glass. A little smokey.
Satisfying thick creamy flavor with a bit of a chocolate mid/after taste.. Nice flavor on tap which is how I like my beer. It is my go to beer at my neighborhood beer bar.

Serving type: on-tap
