4.33/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

500mL bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a smooth, dark-brown into the glass. Two-finger width of tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving lacing on the glass. The vanilla could be smelled from afar just from the pouring!

Smell: Lots of bourbon characteristics like I expect from the original BA Framinghammer. Notes of vanilla come right through.

Taste: Bourbon and vanilla up front, finishes with a strong presence of oak, roasted malt and coffee. Subtle caramel and molasses notes.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and soooo, soooo smooth and creamy. Little carbonation.

Overall: Great variation on the original BA Framinghammer. The sweetness and vanilla aren't too overpowering and the beer retains its base beer qualities. It is full-bodied and robust like I expect from a porter, and I would definitely have again.

Serving type: bottle

4.46/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a surprisingly light amount of head that dissipates quickly but still leaves some creamy stuff on the side. The head is a light brown color. The beer itself is a very dark brown bordering on black that is opaque. The beer also has a silky smooth appearance. The beer smell has strong dark chocolate notes and roasted malts. The beer has a strong vanilla presence that is very noticeable but not too pervasive. The alcohol is also noticeable in the smell. The beer taste is very similar to the beer smell. However, the vanilla is much stronger and the notes mix very well to create a pretty baltic porter. The taste also has that slight funk that is typical of the style but isn't very strong such that it'll turn people away. The mouthfeel is very smooth and heavy bodied. The carbonation is very little and almost unnoticeable. Overall, a fantastic beer worth getting again. I enjoy how strong and distinct the flavors are in this brew.
