Pours a very dark red color with a thin brown head. Head retention is virtually non-existent. Lacing is minimal. Has a roasted malty aroma with some vanilla and chocolate. Very smooth taste. There is some roasted malts up front, but it quickly goes to a silky vanilla. Very mild hoppy burst, but a nice bitterness at the end. Good beer. I would definitely drink again. Just not the best porter I have had. It will do for sure.
