A - Dark but translucent. I can see birds on the feeders outside my window through this porter. Large two finger creamy tan head that hung out for a while. Minimal lacing.

S- Dark roasted malts prevail. Some light fruitiness and a slight hint of vanilla.

T- Dark roasted chocolate malts, but not real dark. Slight coffee. An almost perfume-ish vanilla flavor in the middle, followed by a weird tart fruit aftertaste. Could be cherries.

M- Light and lacking the creaminess I look for in a porter. Leaves a waxy feeling in my mouth.

O- Well I've had better porters for sure. This is not well balanced at all. I think they fell asleep when the hops were supposed to be added. Not a big fan of this version. Drinkable but I won't purchase this brew if other options are available.

This beer looks and smells great. The beer has some bold flavors including chocolate and coffee. It has a little bit more sweetness than I would generally prefer in my beer; but the winter season only rolls around once a year, so it's easy to enjoy. If you haven't tried Leinenkugel's Vanilla Porter, I recommend that you do.

Appearance: Black. Reddish brown hue when held up to light. Leaves a very thin lace of head.
Smell: Roasted malt and coffee.
Taste: Malt and light coffee/cocoa. Touch of sweetness.

This isn't bad. I think it's worth drinking, or at least trying once. The dark pour is inviting, and the remaining head lace is decent. The smell is also enjoyable with a roasted coffee and malt influence. You can also somehow smell something sweet in the background. The taste is a tad bit stronger, but is basically the same as the smell. It's a sweet, roasted coffee. I probably wouldn't get this again, but I'd certainly enjoy it and drink it again if offered one.
