Very solid offering. I like the vanilla influence here. Smooth and creamy.

This is one of the better porters I have had at this price range. Definitely something I would buy again. That said there are better ones out there. The only complaint I would have is that it has a bit of an aftertaste.

Appearance: Pours very dark, thick and tan.

Overall: Tastes of vanilla at first then toffee and porter follow. Good winter brew.

Had this on tap at a pub that was out of stout. Think root beer; sweet, thin, limited cream- colored head that quickly dissipates with minimal lacing.

Beautiful color and I thought it smelled great with a very explicit vanilla flavor (duh). The taste was just fine, while not being particularly complex. The moderately high carbonation set me off however.

I could definitely see myself buying this beer for someone who might not be into porters at all as it is a nice segway beer. However, I probably won't get it for myself anytime soon.

Didn't have much flavor to it at all. Drinkable but not very good.

Another well made beer.. Nice and smooth.. Great vanilla flavor! And at 6% no alcohol detected. A winner.. And a great transition beer!
