This beer has lots of vanilla, some cocoa, and it's on the sweet side. The appearance is normal dark color, with minimal head (from a can). What it didn't have was a lot of beer character. It didn't have much roasted malt character, as most porters would have. The body is on the thin side. Recommended if you like vanilla a lot, but there are much better porters out there.

9/21/17. REALLY strong vanilla nose. Taste is very dry and clean for a port. Definitely not a milk stout. Some bitter finish but not really a chocolate or coffee flavor. What I really liked about it was the strong vanilla scent and the dry, clean, dark flavor which was almost more stout-like than porter. Pint glass from the tap at Trailhead Taphouse & Kitchen, Golden, CO.
