12 oz can. Pours brown with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is grainy chocolate malts with some vanilla and some roast and a little coffee.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate and vanilla with some roast and an acidic bitter finish. The moutfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a decent sweet vanilla porter. Not overly sweet with balance from the roast.

Surprisingly clean, bright Porter with a very light hint of vanilla. Superior to those which typically over-do the flavoring to the point of tasting fake. Very light carbonation, no lace, slightly acidic nose. A bit more like an Autumn Brown than a full blown porter. Overall, great porter for the warmer months of the year.

this hit shelves today, and what i like about it is precisely what i dont like about it. that is how light it is, its insanely drinkable, especially without being sweet in the slightest, but what i dont like about it is how thin it comes across. it visually and feel wise presents itself as a brown ale, and that theme is continued throughout. i dont get enough big bitter dark roasted barley, and that hurts the middle and the feel for me, but the vanilla is authentic, the chocolate malt is yummy, and the cleanness of the finish is uncommon for the style. this may have made a better impression in early fall, but for the dead of winter is was a little too small for my tastes. not overdone with vanilla either, which sometimes these beers can be. carbonation is fine, but the body is lacking. not watery, but not hearty either. a nicely flavored brew overall though, and one i would have no problem drinking a six pack of in a session.
