A very session-able porter. It pours dark brown with little in terms of head. The aroma is very lager-ish, with not much in terms of toast or burnt grains. The taste is similarly mild, but with a nice nutty and bitter coffee finish.

L: bright dark brown under a lacy 2" medium tan cap with good retention

S: starts with a strong vanilla smell. About half of it blows off revealing dark coffee with some support from medium low malt aromas and low hop aromas.

T: has a slightly bitter dry grainy coffee start and ends vanilla sweet with some traces of dark fruit. Coffee and vanilla tastes dominate.

F: creamy with a medium body and carbonation

O: a good one bottle at a time dessert beer but it is a bit too sweet and the vanilla a little intense for this to be a beer to drink all evening.
