Nitro Vanilla Porter pours a darker brown color, with a long lasting creamy head. Mellow aroma, hints of smokey malt and peat. Flavor is lighter, smokey malts,hints of vanilla. Watery body. Overall, not bad, tasty, just a bit too watery.

No canning date, just a code. Probably 2-3 months old.

A: Pitch-black pour with a large and very dense dark tan head. Head appears nearly solid and does not even budge for several minutes. Literally 15 minutes later and it's only halfway gone.

S: Smells sweet and creamy. A little chocolate and a lot of vanilla.

T: More of the same. Light charred malt with a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Lots and lots of smooth, creamy vanilla. Emphasis on the smooth. Creamy vanilla fades a little in the aftertaste revealing a more typical charry/cocoa flavor with a tiny bit of bitterness. Not sweet but not dry...just right.

M: Lighter bodied but silky and smooth. Feels heavier than it is.

O: A nice simple porter for sure. Excellent ultra silky body plus simple and sweeter flavors make this a nice easy drinking beer. The kind of beer just about anyone will enjoy. Not crazy complex or exotic just smooth and enjoyable. Well done.

Has a much lighter taste and feel than I expected. I enjoyed the after taste but drinking it was not an exciting experience. I think the lightness of it combined with hints of coffee gave me a confusing and undesired taste.

Smell with light chocolate, vanilla. Vanilla in the taste is restrained, rounded out by roast and coffee. Smooth and round, if a bit light bodied. A good beer.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is dark brown, head is tan, super fine bubbles, very dense top that presents about 1/2 inch then lingers very, very well; head clings to the glass nicely.

Smell is a little light, presents initially as vanilla, light toast, hint of chocolate.

Taste is very pleasant, smooth - flavors are vanilla, not overdone but dominant, then lighter cocoa and toast. Simple, smooth, briefly sweet.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, light nitro feel, hint of bitter earthiness.

Overall a good, solid, smooth flavored porter - great vanilla flavor thats not overdone, simple porter backbone.
