look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Dark brown. Black in the glass, but transparent at the edges. Decent cream head.
Smell - Lots of vanilla. Overwhelmed by vanilla. Traces of chocolate and coconut. More chocolate than coconut.

Taste - Bitter roasted malt. Still a lot of vanilla. Coconut is a little lost. Bitter roasted malt in the finish.

Mouthfeel - It's super thin. Medium light, objectively, but too thin for the style. I realize it's just a porter, but still.

Overall - Pretty tasty, despite being too light. More richness would support a good flavor base.
