Poured into an Irish pint glass.
The beer is as black as an espresso bean with brown barely coming through the edges. Not much of a head from my growler pour. Light dots of lacing.
The aroma is thick and very full of rich dark chocolate notes. A nice underlying current of vanilla.
The beer tastes rich, with dark roasted malts leading the palate through dark bitter chocolate and vanilla. There's a spicy little kick in the end from the rich chocolate notes.
The mouthfeel is pretty solid, a bit creamy.
Overall, this is one of the best vanilla porters I have ever had because of it's thicker body and rich taste.
Serving type: growler

Draft served in a pint ale glass.
Color is a dark brown with a creamy head that is a light brown, about one finger deep, right up to the brim. Head settled, but never disappeared, leaving a beautiful lacing in the glass.
Aroma is vanilla, malt and roasted grain.
Flavor is vanilla, coffee, roasted grain and raisins. Nothiing overpowers your tastebuds, and they are in good proportions.
Finish is roasted vanilla that has just enough vanilla to enlighten the palate, yet not overwhelm.
Overall, this beer is worthy of a few more samplings.
Serving type: on-tap
