Tap

Pours a dark clear brown, tan lacing.

Smells of roasted malts and leather.

Tastes of vanilla and orange peel with a hint of cinnamon.

Medium body with a light tingly carbonation.

Good aroma, average appearance and funky flavor. Not enjoyable honestly.

This is definitely not the greatest porter in the world, and I agree with others that it is fairly watery, and that means the taste comes off muted, but the vanilla sweetness is not bad, and overall, I would say that this is an acceptable beer. I would drink it again if I didn't have better choices.
