A: Had to wait a bit while they changed kegs, so this was the first glass from the new one. 2 fingered head that dissipated rather slowly. The color was a deep ruby brown. Lacing was light on the glass.
S: Vanilla and roasted malts. There is no denying that this is a vanilla flavored beer. Almost too much vanilla!
T: Overwhelming vanilla. This is a dessert beer, without a doubt. The caramel and chocolate malts were also there. After swallowing, you get a similar taste in your mouth after you eat vanilla ice cream. Not bad, but not completely balanced. Was this real vanilla bean they used? Makes me wonder...
M: Great mouthfeel, overall. It was very smooth and sat in my mouth well.
D: As much as this was a dessert beer, vanilla is one of my favorite flavors. I would most likely have this again.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured out of a growler into a shaker glass.
A- awesome root beer color: dark mohogany with a nice quarter inch lace. Lace falls down quickly. Looks like it has low carbonation.
S- sweet roast with a hint of vanilla. No hop nose distinguishable.
T- sweetish, buttery, roasted coffee. Touch of vanilla. Not as hoppy as some porters are. Somewhat astringent but not annoyingly so. Finishes quite dry.
M- thin and with low carbonation.
O- My first Rohrbach sampling and I enjoyed the hell out of it. To me, this beer cries out drinkability. Its not a hoppy porter. It's a session porter with enough roastiness and hop dryness to fit the bill. Overall, it is a very drinkable and refreshing beer with just enough qualities to hit the spot when a porter is what I am looking for.
Serving type: growler
