This Porter stands on a level way higher than all the rest. Is a very well balanced roasty flavor that rounds itself off with a little soft flavor of vanilla on the back end. Defiantly not a cold weather only Porter.

An excellent porter that probably isn't actually very porterlike. Dark brown/black pour. Creamy feel. Strong vanilla over a roasted porter flavor.

Loved this smokey, smooth, gentle porter. The vanilla came through in the nose and the finish.

Pint at the brewery with Bro and Bob, just got finished eating supper at Saw's Soul Food a couple of doors down. Outstanding porter...didn't taste a lot of vanilla, but didn't need to. Great brewery with cool outdoors area.

Black body, chocolate mousse head that doesn't stick around d quite long enough.

Little bit of vanilla on the nose, pleasant.

Taste - slight bitterness finished by some vanilla.

Feel - smooth and creamy.

Overall - I like it. Nuff said. It's tasty and creamy and vanilla-y
