Poured into my trusty highball from the bottle with dinner.

Appearance: white-coffee coloured head that is quite thick and dissipates very slowly. The body is nearly black, with faint amber tones.

Smell: Unfortunately, I'm congested so I'm not getting much here. Faintly smoky with plenty of vanilla.

Moutfeel: average viscosity and very low fizz.

Taste: nice, strong, dark malt balanced by as much vanilla as the scent advertises. Very nice.

Drinkability: solid. Chuggable, sippable, I'll probably seek this out again at some point.

Serving type: bottle

Poured into a glass mug. Pours dark brown to almost black with a finger length, light tan head. Some bubbles can be seen along the side of the glass, but not many. The head dissipates quickly, leaving only a cap of head atop the beer. I definitely detect the vanilla in the aroma, though this is not strong. I detect chocolate and some coffee and roasted malt aromas. The taste of chocolate and vanilla are very forward here. There is a nice malty backbone that is roasty and mildly sweet. The body is light to medium with some carbonation. The beer is smooth and is highly drinkable. This is a very good porter.
