The best Porter I've ever had. Tastes like coffee infused fudge. Wow. I want a case of this.

Picked up a 22oz bomber from a good friend of mine that picked it up at the brewery. Poured into a stemmed tulip glass.

Pours an effervescent dark brown (almost black) hue with a fat brownish/tan head that dissipates quicker than expected without leaving much lacing. Aroma is like a mocha cappuccino with a shot of vanilla (hence the name i suppose) with some notes of burnt toast. Flavor follows aroma with some toasty sweetness from the malt and bitterness from the coffee - more balanced than the nose insinuated. Mouthfeel is lively effervescent and thinner than I had hoped - odd for an Imperial Porter. I enjoyed this beer quite a lot, but felt it fell a bit short for the style.
