What is a robust porter? The answer is a stout! I can't think of a better vanilla beer. Tastes great and it's a cheap bomber. It don't get much better than that!

Dark brown body with Coca Cola highlights. Three fingers of highly whipped medium tan foam.

Aroma dominated by coffee.

Coffee mixed with sweetness up front. Bitter bite at the swallow. Not getting any real vanilla though. Slight echoes at best.

Little on the thin side for a robust porter, not chewy.

Take the vanilla off the label and the score goes up a little, but it's just okay even then.

From the 650 ml. bottle dated 01/31/14. Sampled on April 4, 2014.

It pours dark brown to about jet black with a small tan head that erupts and fades as quickly. A little cloudy if I look close enough because it is pretty opaque.

The aroma is of sweet dark malts, mellow coffee, and vanilla beans but nothing overtakes anything else. Each has its own part to play on the nose.

Thin to medium body.

The vanilla comes forward a b it more in the flavor, which it should considering they mention it on the label. But I also get a dry, earthy bitterness to seal the deal. Pleasant.
