Poured almost black into a frosty pint glass, the pour yielded a thin tan head of about a finger or so that disappeared quickly with just a bit of lacing. The vanilla notes are interesting...they come on late and aren't overpowering, but seem to be very well balanced with the rest of the brew. This is a decent porter...very easy to drink with just the right amount of creamy vanilla flavor. Just a little too much carbonation, but otherwise not too much to complain about. The price for 6 was over 10 bucks here in Maryland. Seemed a little steep for this brew, but again this is a pretty decent brew so I'm not gonna complain much. Cheers!

Thought I ordered a vanilla porter, but kept waiting for the vanilla.
A very good porter - poured dark with a modest head and gave some vanilla smell, but barely. It was easy and light in the mouth and the taste was good. But I kept wanting more vanilla - not dominating it, but just a touch more would have made it phenomenal
