Growler that was one day old from the brewery. Pours jet black limited head with a mild coffee and cocoa smell but not too aggressive. Initial sip a bit thin with mostly unsweetened coffee notes and a slight metallic taste which as it warmed seemed to be from the vanilla. Was expecting more given the coffee and vanilla
Serving type: growler

Bottle poured into a snifter
A - Dark, chocolate brown with a small milk chocolate head
S - Chocolate, sweet vanilla, light coffee and roasted malt near the back end. The vanilla actually stands out well to give it an overall sweet nose.
T - Up front is milk chocolate with a light coffee presence. There is then a nice vanilla up front that makes it tastes slightly like a mocha frappe. The finish has a good presence of roasted malt and a slight bitterness from the coffee
M - Medium body with low carbonation. It is slightly velvety. The finish is a bit astringent from the coffee and roasted malt but it isn't overpowering.
O - This is a solid porter as a base beer which is given another level of flavor and complexity with the vanilla and coffee added. The vanilla adds a nice sweetness that you notice up front while the coffee adds some punch on the backend.
