A: Pours a dark rust color with minimal head.

S: Deep rich malty, vanilla, dark fruit.

F: Thin but sticky. Little carbonation.

Bottle to goblet.

LOOK: Black-brown color. Medium Off white head. OK retention.
AROMA: roasted malt with some sweet vanilla.
TASTE: less of the vanilla, but some. Char, tea, cola.
FEEL: a Tad flat, but OK for the style. A tiny notch thicker than medium body.

A tasty option.

Very dark, almost opaque, creamy head recedes quickly but is quite lacy; A mild subdued aroma, distinctive but faint - I can't name it; Smooth feeling, not overly carbonated, but not flat; Flavor is mild, pleasant, not robust, the vanilla in the name isn't apparent. A good beer - I could drink more of them.

The label on my bottle doesn't say "Remarkable" or "Partakable" like the one shown here on BA. I would say that this porter is definitely partakable, but not particularly remarkable.

This is okay, but sort of on the softer side of things. The vanilla sweetness is their. Light & refreshing. I am not too crazy about this dark beer. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

Pretty bland but otherwise inoffensive. Not a tremendous amount of vanilla but the porter flavors are easy going and fine, just doesn’t have much muscle or identity
