3.08/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

22oz bottle from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 5.99. Served in a large snifter. 

Pours dark brown with 1.5 fingers beige head. Very little lacing. 

Smells of faintly roasty malt, vanilla extract and heavily creamed/sweetened coffee. Meh. 

Luckily the vanilla and roast comes through a little better in the taste. A one trick pony of vanilla/roast that borders too sweet without any balancing depth but it knows what it is. Zero alcohol apparent, not surprising at only 6%. 

Feel is light and thin with nearly too much carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste. 

Not a bad drinking experience but not one I'll be clamoring to repeat. It has a distinct sweet vanilla edge, of which I'm a fan but there are several other beers that do it better in my opinion.

A: Pours black with a mocha head.

S: Nose has dark roast coffee, some dark chocolate, but very little vanilla.

T: Strong dark roast coffee followed by a decent amount of vanilla, then dark chocolate and more coffee in the finish.

M: Full bodied and not smooth... until it warms up. Vanilla becomes much more noticeable and the body becomes smoother and creamy.

O: Definitely drink this a bit warmer than your average beer. It's a solid vanilla porter. I definitely like the style.

I wish I could give this a proper review, but the bottle i got was infected. I knew something was up when I poured a small amount and it gushed out of the glass. Taste is chocolatey brett. I was very excited to try this too so it's an extra disappointed.
