Bottle poured into my Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.
A: Pours a moderately dark shade of black, with a nice tan head on top, moderately sized, which receded fairly quickly but didn't completely disappear.
S: Roasty and creamy, a nice combination of coffee and vanilla as well. Maybe just a hint of grapefruit shining through.
T: Flavor begins with classic roasted notes. Vanilla begins to make itself present as the glass warms. A light blast of pine and grapefruit arrive near the end.
M: A bit thin for my liking. Nice creaminess, though. Certainly not a dry finish.
D/O: Vanilla-roast became more pronounced, and the finish improved, as the beer warmed. But it still remained a bit thin. This would probably be an enjoyable Porter during the heat of Summer, but it's not an ideal Winter Porter.
