I bought this as a past dated deal and it was a great deal. I tried it and was very pleased that the flavor was not stale. It had a great dark vanilla flavor with major coffee hints.

A crisper porter with a thick finish, not bad but could be better,

Taste Rating in Words: It's a light snow on a hot day, pretty but not much to play with.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a soft mostly dark brown color with no head nor lacing. The smell starts off with a light roasted coffee bean, vanilla slightly comes into balance with a light cocoa coming about. Light nuttiness does also enter in as it warms. The taste has a mellow roast to semi-sweet vanilla/cocoa that leads to a gentle dry and roasty coffee aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, as an American Porter it works.
