On tap at the tasting room.
A: Very dark brown, nearing black, but still clear around the edges. A half finger of fine, light tan head with excellent retention and some dots and streaks of lacing.
S: Vanilla bean. Good, like vanilla frosting which covers most of the other flavors, though some milk chocolate comes through.
T: Vanilla transitions into the roasted malt component. Here, the vanilla complements the other flavors without obscuring them. A sharp acidity is still there, and a little sweetness on the finish complements the vanilla flavor quite well. Vanilla sticks around on the long finish.
M: Medium body, ultra smooth, with medium light carbonation providing some bite.
O: A solid variation on the Robust Porter. A good level of vanilla and good drinkability. Overall, a lighter porter that doesn't reach the level decadence of Victory at Sea, although that's not really what they were going for.
