Poured a deep brown body with red highlights when held to light and a thin ring of head. A decent looking porter, but it could use better head formation. Scents of coffee with cream, bittersweet milk chocolate, moderate levels of roast malt, medium-high notes of vanilla and light caramel and bready malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a wonderful porter base with a very pleasant addition of vanilla. True to style, pleasant and enticing, very well done. Flavor begins lightly sweet with notes of sweetened coffee with cream, milk chocolate, vanilla, light caramel and a light roast malt and black coffee bitterness keeping it balanced. Middle is lightly sweet still with notes of vanilla, coffee with cream, light caramel and bready malt. Finish is medium-dry with notes of dark coffee with cream, vanilla, roast malt, dark chocolate and a very light touch of caramel very far in the background. Aftertaste is roast malt, black coffee and vanilla. Overall impression of flavor is of a very good porter base enhanced by the addition of vanilla. Roasty, rich and full of flavor. Very nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth feel with a light prickle. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a very good porter, true to form and pleasing to drink. Overall this is an excellent porter. The vanilla aids the aroma and flavor of a solid base beer and makes this one a good one. Very highly recommended.
