Got this in a custom 6-pack.
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - A dark brown with smallish head.

S - Toasty, almost burnt scent. Some definite coffee and malt notes, can't really smell much vanilla though, which is surprising considering the name of the brew.

T - Tastes similar to the smell. Majority is coffee and malt, slight hint of vanilla.

M - Some carbonation, but not too much. Pretty smooth after setting in my glass and warming for a minute. Very clean aftertaste, which is nice.

Summary - I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed in this porter. I thought I'd be getting a little vanilla kick somewhere in here, but there is almost nothing - the memories of the drink are of burnt coffee, which is never good. I'm thinking I will try it again in the future. For right now though, it's very average.
