12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

This beer pours dark brown that turns black in the glass, red around the edges and a light brown head. The beer has a lot of roasted character, there is also a good deal of coffee in this beer. The vanilla however, is its strongest taste attribute. It is a very vanilla forward brew. There is a little chocolate character to this beer as well. The mouthfeel is lacking, it is a very sessionable beer but I would like to have seen something a bit thicker. It is a solid drinkable and flavorful porter.
