This porter came in a bottle, and was poured out into a pint glass. Porter looked clear, dark brown and had a creamy beige head. Smelled like malts and vanilla, and I could also detect a slight almond aroma. Just like it smelled, the porter tasted very malty, like vanilla, and finished with a toasty bitter finish. Slightly creamy, and heavy on the palate. More of a sipping beer.

Would I buy this beer again? Probably not.

poured bottle into stout glass

A- A nice dark porter with a reddish hue as light reflects and refracts through it. A brief light tan head appears and fades to a small island about the size of a quarter that floats in the center of my glass

S- A nice warm roasty smell with some aromas of vanilla. Just as expected. A little bit of a fruit smell. Perhaps plum? Not hoppy or over the top.

T- Some chocolate roasted malts and a hint of vanilla. Virtually no hops in the taste. I'm not a java head when it comes to beers so this is right up my alley as the roasted malt and coffee flavors are subdued and not very evident. This is a very good beer from the Leinenkugel's!

M- Rich, smooth, creamy medium bodied porter that is as easy to drink as an AAL, but with all the great flavors of a good dark ale.

O- I had this on tap at Bomber's Burritos in Schenectady last year and it paired well with my dinner. It was also good enough fro me to remember a year later as I saw this out and grabbed a bottle to refresh my memory. This is one of the best porters I have had. It is well balanced and easy to drink. It's low ABV makes it a great session ale and at around 15 bucks for a 12 pack, it's a steal! Try this beer if you like smooth, easy drinking stouts and porters.
