12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with some ruby around the edges, especially when held to the light. Lacing nonexistent and very little head. Some decent carbonation.
Aroma: Lots of nice standard porter aromas. There's black coffee, dark chocolate, a little touch of vanilla, roasted coffee beans, and dark, roasty malts.
Taste: Taste follows the nose, with coffee leading the way, and that vanilla note more present. Tasty, easy-drinking porter. Some nice hop bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth, as a porter should be.
Overall: A very nice, traditional porter. I miss I saw more of this as I feel it's one of Geary's better efforts. Definitely worth picking up.

A. - Dark brown color with an explosive head. Head lasts a long time with quality lacing on glass in patches. Inviting.
s - Coffee and malt.
t - bitter malt in front with a coffee finish. A bit bitter, but a good to very good porter.
m - thin,but nice wit the high carbonation.
O - would like more body and less bitter for this beer to go into the outstanding range, but it is knocking on the door.

I don't like Geary's very much, but this porter is definitely the best thing out of their winter variety pack. I feel like I needed to rate this beer because i am not much of a porter fan in general (tending to stick to IPAs and Stouts) but this one was nicely smooth and tasted more like vanilla than a typical porter (closer to a Stout it seemed but more bitter). However, rather than a typical porter, which tends to have the bitter and almost dry taste for a darker beer, this one had a very tasty, sweet and almost refreshing taste and mouthfeel
