3.39/5 rDev -13.3%

Tastes like porter strained through vanilla wafers. Dark brown in the Orval chalice with a low head. No trace of lacing in the glass but spritzy enough in the mouth. Sweet and sugary. A little oily.
This is some funny stuff. Surprisingly light body, but maybe it's just not all that malty. It's not really powerful enough to carry off the milky, spicy sweet flavors. I'm not sure I want a session vanilla beer. Still it's drinkable enough once you get over the sweet nonsense of it.
The cinnamon is not overly powerful, but this does taste more like cookies than beer. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

On tap at D&T in Houston.
A: Pours a dark brown, nearly black color. Basically no head forms and no lace. Pretty still and lifeless.
S: Roasted malt, some coffee, and big milk chocolate aromas. A big sweet vanilla and toffee aroma as well.
T: A bit less roast in than in the nose. Plenty of sweetness though. Big milk chocolate, vanilla, and toffee again.
M/D: Under carbonated for my tastes. Pretty thin, watery and lifeless. Plenty of alcohol here. Kind of fusel like, add the big sweetness and it takes me a bit longer to sip on than I would like.
An OK imperial porter. A big sweetness from the vanilla, but not much else. No bad, but just kind of flat overall.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Dark black, decent head, looks like a tasty porter. Aroma was cinnamon and malt. Flavor was as advertised: cinnamon, vanilla, malt, hint if chocolate. On the face of it it sounds awesome but it was really just ok. Glad I did not purchase a bottle of this.
