Pours dark brown with a tan head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of roasted dark malt, vanilla, cocoa powder and a subtle hint of cinnamon.

The taste is of sweet dark malt, vague dark fruitiness. There is a hint of vanilla bean with some brown sugar. Cinnamon comes through in the aftertaste and lingers. Spicy finish with a bit of roast.

It's thin, but just above watery. Pretty smooth.

The flavors don't mesh together as well as they could. Still in all, it's not bad. Other than a hint of roast, leans more towards a spiced brown ale. Cinnamon is a bit much in the aftertaste. It's "different".

Poured from a 12oz. bottle-no exp. date- into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy amber in color, with a nice head of light tan foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt.
Taste-Flavors seem watered-down. Faint cinnamon and vanilla notes, muddled and unbalanced. Seems more like a brown ale than a porter.

Appearance is a dark brown with ruby edges. There is a half finger of head that enjoyed some decent retention. The nose is nutty, but also oddly tart. The same tartiness is present in the flavor profile. The flavor profile is not very roasty – I can understand why some might classify this as a brown ale rather than a porter. The finish has caramel notes and may be the most enjoyable part of the tasting experience.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, some notes of vanilla. Taste is chocolate, cinnamon, some vanilla, unique and pretty tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a different and solid beer.
