Had on tap at brewery. Very good coffee porter. Thought vanilla was present as an appropriate accent...didn't overwhelm the coffee or porter malts and hops. Strictly a matter of personal taste but found the coffee chosen/used a bit over roasted that added a bite and bitterness that I found somewhat unpleasant. But beer itself was an excellently made porter.

Pours black with a half finger dark tan head of tight bubbles that recedes pretty quickly to a ring. Aroma is all fresh cold brew coffee just exploding out of the glass. Taste is coffee and sweet vanilla with milk chocolate sweetness. Simply delicious. I would drink this every day.

Pours jet black. Single finger tan head. Nose is a huge punch in the face of coffee. Outstanding. Taste is coffee first followed by hints of vanilla and chocolate. Medium carb adds to a creamy feel. Overall, an excellent coffee porter.
