3.7/5 rDev +9.8%
12 ounce can. Feb 2014 (?) on the bottom of the can.
Pours dark amber w/ a reddish hue. Mocha head, frothy and staying nicely. Goes to a thicker film, and leaves some low sheeting and ample fine scattered bits of lacing.
Mild nose of some sweet malts, sugary chocolate and a hint of coffee.
Lighter on the palate then the typical porter. Notes of more milk chocolate, coffee cake and a whiff of vanilla. Not bad. Decent, lighter bodied, easy drinking and sessionable winter brew.

3.25/5 rDev -3.6%
Dark red body with a thin, foamy head. Aroma releases various scents, sometimes a wet dankness, other times a slight roasted grain and nut note, and still other times a heavily sweet vanilla tone. First taste impression was almost of a rootbeer, but then it quickly revealed a combination vanilla sweetness and an almost metallic hop bitterness. Medium bodied; somewhat coarse and fizzy; semi-sweet finish.
An overly sweet porter in many ways and a bit disjointed in character. More sugary and syrupy tasting with a relatively weak, watery body. Drinkable but mediocre porter lacking a solid depth and complexity that would make it more memorable.

From bottle into pint glass. Dark brown with light beige head. Not getting a whole lot from smell, maybe a tinge a vanilla bean, low backhround of carmel. Taste is light, not full bodied, light, airy, smooth, plwasant aftertaste, vanilla bean tones bittersweet chocolate.
Overall its not the worst porter ive had. I would rate this beer ok. Its a good choice if your at a store where there is not a whole lot of other craft choice. Its a 150% better choice than the BMC alternatives..
