Pours thin and watery, cola brown with some faint mahogany highlight. Two finger head, generous amount of beige foam had okay retention and leaves flecks of lacing on the glass.

Chocolate and roasted malt with quite a bit of grainy bits floating about. The vanilla comes in as a wave of soft creaminess that takes the edge off some of the harsh grainy aroma. Alcohol and hops are pretty much nil except of some herbal and balancing weak grasses.

Robust porter base, a nice balance of roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate malt, the raw grainy aroma fortunately is eliminated in the flavor. Vanilla is faint providing a smooth, creamy and softening sense to the dark malt. Hops are also prevalent adding herbal and grassy hues that battle the vanilla yet provide a surprisingly clean finish.

Thin porter, watery with just enough carbonation. Alcohol is hidden and the balancing hops provide a little dryness to which the bittersweet chocolate provides bitterness and some acidity.

A very balanced porter, vanilla is a bit subtle but fortunately not overly sweet. Malt is well constructed providing some chocolate goodness to go with the unique vanilla and bracing/workman-like hops.
