look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A-dark ruby brown. Only a little light got through on an angle. A slight bit of light tan head disappears almost immediately.

S- not much here. A little bit of malty sweetness but not really much else.

T- a not unpleasant hint of vanilla is the only discernible flavor in an otherwise indistinguishable malty body. Nothing about the beer says "porter".

M- smooth and satisfying

O- I wish the porter was more pronounced to balance the vanilla. Ok but missing any real depth from the roast malt.

12-oz bottle into porter/stout glass

A - 2-finger light tan head over a body of black with orange/ruby highlights;

T - cherry-like fruit, burnt grain, black coffee, vanilla, faint caramel sweetness; cream-soda-like vanilla in the dry finish

M - dry; oily, smooth, creamy, medium body; low/medium carbonation

O - Very pleasant taste and mouthfeel! I could sip this for hours while reflecting on life.
