22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/15/2014. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big vanilla, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, creamed coffee, toast, and light herbal. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and vanilla notes; with good strength. Taste of vanilla, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, creamed coffee, toast, and light herbal. Slight herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of vanilla, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, creamed coffee, toast, and light herbal on the finish for a good bit. Good complexity and solid robustness of dark/roasted malt and vanilla flavors; with a great malt/vanilla balance and minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good vanilla porter. All around good complexity and solid robustness of dark/roasted malt and vanilla flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar; upon closer inspection it is clear and very dark red in color when held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but left a short head and thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of vanilla and dark malts are present in the nose. The malts become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has foremost flavors of vanilla beans along with notes of dark malts and hints of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Once the porter warms up, the vanilla becomes dominate and makes for this as being a nice dessert beer.
