Wet, Vanilla, Chocolate, Smooth

Brewed with grade-A Tahitian vanilla beans shows a large emphisis on this character though less on the “Porter” side on things. Faint cordial or cooking extract flavor in the middle. Subtle chocolate and coffee flavors but no real burnt or roasted character and could easily be confused with a Brown Ale. Is it tasty? Yes. Is it enjoyable? Sure, why not but there is still something left to be really desired here.
