Poured into a shaker pint


A: dark rich brown black color nice light head 


S: pure roasted coffee and some vanilla 


T: follows the nose to a T this is huge almost fresh coffee taste with a light vanilla back


M: mediumish mouth not super thin but not heavy either


O: I've had several coffee porters lately and they seemed like one trick ponies the vanilla adds another layer of depth to this beer and makes it quite tasty

On tap this beer may have been the best plain coffee beer I've ever had. Huge dark bitter coffee flavor complimenting the creamy and dark porter flavor. There was also a sweet vanilla aftertaste that was very good. A higher ABV would have been nice though. When poured from the can into a sniffer the beer was not as dark or complex tasting when compared to on tap. All the flavors mentioned above were still present just not as prevalent.
