Aroma of vanilla very prominent. Creamy tan colored head that lasts. Amazing flavor of coffee and vanilla with a very smooth mouth feel from the nitro tap. Vanilla not as strong in flavor as some vanilla portets I have had. Bottle was okay by the nitro takes it to another level. Done in a great porter fashion.

On draft from fox & hound in Ohio.

A black porter with a small creamy "coke" colored head with minimal lacing.

A deep chocolate and coffee aroma with a hint of vanilla.

Taste was similar to aroma - chocolate up front with a long lasting slightly bitter coffee finish with mild vanilla undertones.

Mouth feel was nice, smooth & lightly creamy. Very little alcohol taste or burn for a 7.6%ABV.

I very good chocolate vanilla porter that I hope to drink again

Considering the not so great reviews I was fairly impressed with this beer. I would revisit this beer for sure.

Nitro at Wino's in Bowling Green.

A - Deep brown, nearly black, great Nitro head.

S - Fairly muted dark malts and coffee with a sweet hint.

T - Creamy coffee, vanilla and chocolate all blend smoothly together. The nitro really helps lift the creaminess throughout.

M - Well, the light porter body is evident, but the nitro gives a lot of nice fullness to bring it up.

O - Really a nice porter. I'd be interested to see how good the flavors blends with a different gas blend or out of a bottle. As it stands, this is one of the best porters I've ever had, flying right under the radar. Could be the nitro though.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip.

A: Motor oil black with one finger head that disappeared fairly quickly to a thin ring and left little to no lacing.

S: Mostly vanilla and roasted malts. Maybe a hint of chocolate and coffee.

T: Again the vanilla is the star of the show. Some roasted malts, light chocolate, and faint coffee.

M: Medium body and pleasant slightly sweet finish.

O: Decent and easy drinking porter but I wish there was more depth to flavor and aroma, and I wanted the coffee to be more prominent.
