12 oz. bottle. Undated but likely quite fresh.
Pours very dark reddish brown with a bit of sediment coming out at the end of the pour, and some more stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Head has moderate size and retention.
Aroma: mostly sweet but a little sour and smoky as well, with vanilla and relatively little roast grains.
Taste: follows aroma, largely, although roasted grains and hints of black coffee come out in the finish and aftertaste.
O: mediocre, at best, in the sub-group of vanilla porters.
Serving type: bottle

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is black and thick, with a clingy, smooth, tan head. Nose of rich vanilla, subtle coffee, cream, and baker's chocolate. Flavors are smooth, with rich vanilla forward, cocoa nib in the backbone, and a roasted characteristic all over. Smooth and light in mouth, with a creamy sweet and bitter blend in the aftertaste. Smooth, slightly bitter linger in the finish. Solid and tasty beer.

A - pitch black with a short lived dark brown head
S - huge coffee aroma, some faint vanilla, faint burnt caramel
T - big coffee notes at first with some caramel in the finish; very mild vanilla throughout
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This certainly isn't a bold vanilla porter in the sense that you get blasted with the vanilla notes. Instead this (to me) tends to be more of a coffee porter with some balancing vanilla notes subtley mixed in. It may disappoint those looking for a bold vanilla porter, but anyone seeking a flavorful porter that is easily drinkable will not be disappointed with this one.
