Appearance - dark brown, nearly black. Looks like a porter until you hold it up to the light.
Smell - ok. I don't have a good nose. Vague hints of coffee and caramel.
Taste - like the smell but with a bit of vanilla as well. Both taste and scent come forward when a bit warm.
Mouthfeel - nicely creamy with light carbonation.
Overall - a very good, nearly outstanding beer. I've been into the Scotch Ales lately and Founders Dirty Bastard has set a standard that makes beers like this - good beers - pale in comparison. This is easy drinking and a great beer to pair with a burger, but on its own it won't blow you away.

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
