Poured from 440mL nitro can into a pint glass.
Appearance: very dark amber hue, reminiscent more of a ruby porter, and reasonable for this English style. Head poured a thin layer of creamy tan foam; the nitrogen charge didn't create the big cascading head typical of the presentation.
Smell: light aroma of roast, chocolate and a little vanilla. Reminds me of a milk stout more than anything. Nice, but not particularly nuanced.
Taste: very chocolatey right up front with a nice vanilla component. The flavor is what the aroma really should be; great dessert flavor like a chocolate milk stout. That said, it is still a bit on the simple side. Not bad, but not mind-blowing.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Like many nitrogen presentations, it lacks just a little bit of oomph.
Overall: this is a pretty tasty beer. I could see finishing a meal with one of these sweet pints.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 Served at 10deg C in a draught glass.
A- Pretty good. Open with a carbon dioxide ball. Poured typical to a CO2 ball. Dark but clear.
S- Excellent. Vanilla upon vanilla. Excellent scent
T- Excellent! Enjoyed the first smash to what you thought was going to be less than what it is.
M- Pretty good. Not that creamy at all
O- Very good. Will buy again for sure.
This nice little porter paired well with... chocolate. The vanilla goes so well with Belgium chocolate. Yum!!!
