3.29/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Bottled May 7th 2014.

Simple dark walnut body, with a two finger light cocoa brown to tan head. Head settles to a real foamy cap, and leaves a simple thin puck while slowly settling down. Pretty much a textbook color porter and non aggressive presence.

Mild hints of roast, and soft sweetness. Not really getting any hints of vanilla off of this at all. Clean but not much going on here and a bit closed. Some cake like sense a bit but very hard to detect. Otherwise kind of neutral.

Palate comes forth kind of ordinary. Some odd faint tang but very mild sourness mixing with a large roasted bitterness. Slightly hinting towards acrid, but also wit a touch of mild fizz in the back, of a slightly wet body. Really not getting any mid vanilla off of this at all. Roast feel comes out with a hint of popped seltzery quality, making the bitterness a bit strange.

Overall an ok porter, but really missing the vanilla quality the beer suggests and claims it offers.
