A- Very thin head that disapated almost as soon as I poured it. Very dark murky brown with amber staining.

S- Sweet banana bread and vanilla.

T- Sweet malts and vanilla with a bit of roastiness. Slight earthy notes after about three quarters through when my palate started adjusting to the sweetness.

M- Thin to medium bodied, no lingering aftertaste with a fairly clean finish.

O- Some might consider the vanilla overwhelming and too sweet, but I found it pleasant almost like a dessert beer. I could drink maybe two of these before having to switch it up. This is the vanilla porter that all others should be compared to.

Aroma of vanilla bean, coffee, subtle cocoa, and nutty tones.

Dark brown with a lasting, tan head. Somewhat sweet, cream soda flavors, with dry, roasty tones providing balance.

Medium bodied with average carbonation and a mellow finish.

Very drinkable porter.
