The vanilla flavor of this porter is rather artificial and unpleasant, remniscent of chemical additives. Honestly, it reminds me a lot of Leinenkugel's vanilla porter.

Had this tonight at a local bar & grill with an order of fish & chips. I thought this was very light bodied for a porter, so it went great with a fish meal. A slightly nutty taste with a faint vanilla ending. More malt that hops. A good summertime porter.
