whoa baby, this is cool beer. nice to see it in a can, i had no idea these guys did this. this is such a silky porter, a delicious base beer thats exactly what it should be, and the vanilla is genuine and rather forward, but the beer isnt the least bit sweet, which makes it the kind of porter i can drink a ton of. my dad thought this was the perfect after dinner drink, but i see it with all day and all year applicability. chocolate brown in color, plenty of body, creamy mouthfeel, and a lasting roasty barley and fresh vanilla bean flavor in the finish. the dark malts have a bit of bitterness to them that give the vanilla a unique launch point, and the result is fantastic. if i lived in ny and could get my hands on this, it would probably be in my fridge for the rest of winter. easily the best vanilla porter i have had this season, maybe even longer than that. very well done, my favorite of the three beers i had from them in a recent session.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark, dark ruby/black color with a thin cap of tan head that fades quickly to a ring.

Aroma: Roasted malt with some coffee notes and a hint of chocolate.

Taste: Fairly thin and mild off the start, with some sweetness and roasted flavors. The roasted notes grow as it goes with increasing spicy bitterness. A little chalky on the finish, then the vanilla really shows up and lingers on the finish.

The Rest: A solid, pretty standard porter with a hefty kick of vanilla on the finish.
