A: nice looking porter. Dark black color, nice frothy beige head.

S: strong vanilla, slight maple syrup, funky old chocolate.

T: coffe taste is there but is overpowered by the vanilla. There is also nuts, chocolate, and molasses flavors that come through.

M: low carbonation like you would expect but the body seemed very thin and watery.

O: just ok. I prefer more of a smokey flavor to my porters.

Pours a dark brown color with some red hues. Nice color. Unfortunately, there is very little head, and it disappears completely in mere seconds. Not a very good sign.
Smells of vanilla and roasted malts. The scent is slightly subdued, but the vanilla smell gets me a little excited. The taste is very nice. Roasted malts, nuts, caramel, and of course, vanilla. Vanilla dominates. Slightly sweet, but not excessive. Medium body, slightly creamy, and medium carbonation.

I really like the vanilla taste. It's very well done. It isn't one of the best porters in the world, but it has its place.
