Good, smooth, robust porter, dark, good head, smells like chocolate, drink with friends, on bottle, smells as good as it tastes, don't underestimate this beer. Bought in a larger bomber and got the light kind, not the dark, not the hoppy, just the smooth version.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, roasted coffee, vanilla, and some sweet caramel malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some roasted coffee, vanilla, and caramel malts. Through the middle, some more coffee flavor and vanilla with some nuttiness. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and coffee malts with some vanilla, caramel malts, and nutty flavors.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch thick with a sweet and roasty finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice American porter with a good overall balance.

I don't drink a ton of porters, but this beer is very tasty in my opinion. I'm a bit surprised it's not getting higher marks.

I'm a big fan of vanilla, so maybe I'm bias, but it's full of flavor, sweet (but not too sweet), and easy to drink. There's something missing in making it a great beer, but overall, a nice porter.

Well, as a porter, this is probably my favorite so far.

Very sweet, chocolate-y malt and vanilla (PROMINENT vanilla), with a bitter roasty finish. Thats it. Thats all it does and it does it pretty well.

So its a dessert-y kind of beer. And if thats what you're looking for, and you like chocolate and vanilla mixed together, this is worth a try. I'd get it again just for that purpose.
