look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark brown body with glimmers of garnet, clearish, with a head that's just shy of being white in color.

Smell: While there is a bit of roast and dark fruitiness contained with the nose, it's like sniffing a standard edition Tootsie Roll and a Vanilla Tootsie Roll at the same time.

Taste: Dark maltiness with a chocolate, coffee (light) vibe to it with a fast hit of vanilla. Lesser malty accent of toast and caramel. Medium-plus sweetness. Faint dark fruit. Nil hop character, bitterness. Sweetish finish with the chief flavor, vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. There's an incredibly minor stickiness to the mouthfeel.

Overall: It's good, but, it's just a hair too sweet and strong on the vanilla. Still, I suppose it's better to err on the side of a bit too much vanilla as to failing to deliver any appreciable (and appreciated) vanilla flavor, like the Breckenridge iteration.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a 22 ounce glass at the Jim n Nicks in the airport.

A: Straight black with Coke colored edges. Light creamy head. Scattered lacing.

S: Soft and creamy. Chocolate and heavy vanilla, with no trace of roast.

T: Full and rich. Pleasant, but of no particular import. Vanilla is fortunately not overpowering or artificial, but is present and unmistakably. Hint too of milk chocolate, hops, and roasted barley. Finish is lightly bitter. Yum.

M: Full and smooth. Lightly dry at the end. This is great. Good mouthfeel.

O: a good beer. A sweetish porter that should appeal to all sorts. Enjoyable. Recommended.

Serving type: on-tap
