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

A - Dark as a porter should be (man I'm running out of adjectives), the pour wells up a half finger of medium tan,filmy head

S - Smoky peaty malts with mild vanilla hints, not all together enthralling, but nice nontheless

T - The vanilla comes out in the taste, the smoke and the earthiness are huge in the beginning. After a minute these flavors melt away into a smooth vanilla character, especially in the aftertaste. The vanilla takes the stage solo right at the end of the sip.

M&D&O - normal. tasty. nondescript. This beer would appeal to many people. The vanilla is part of the beer, not added on, which is a huge plus. Sessionable and quaffable, a good beer.
