12 oz can. Pours brown with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is grainy chocolate malts with some vanilla and some roast and a little coffee.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate and vanilla with some roast and an acidic bitter finish. The moutfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a decent sweet vanilla porter. Not overly sweet with balance from the roast.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Black in color with very little penetration to light. There's a fingernail of tan head resting on top. Lighti lacing is present. Aroma is faint notes of chocolate. I taste caramel more so than dark chocolate. The vanilla comes of slightly astringent. It finishes with a slightly nutty to bitter roasted barley note. The mouth is lightly frothy and there are notes of calcium carbonate in the texture.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Deep dark chocolate with ruby or lighter chocolate hues around the edges. Light cream head that dissipates to a film, very light lacing.

Aroma: Heavy roasted notes -- charred ingredients, thick fudge-like aromas, chocolate, not a lot of vanilla.

Taste: Heavy roasted malts and a little bit of charcoal before getting some bitter chocolate. Very earthy bitter finish. Again, not so much vanilla if any.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, actually nicely weighted.

Overall: Could be better, maybe I just drank an older can and the vanilla faded. Otherwise very roasty with good chocolate representation.

Surprisingly clean, bright Porter with a very light hint of vanilla. Superior to those which typically over-do the flavoring to the point of tasting fake. Very light carbonation, no lace, slightly acidic nose. A bit more like an Autumn Brown than a full blown porter. Overall, great porter for the warmer months of the year.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice dark brown color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small creamy light tan head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some chocolate/toffee, vanilla. The taste is malty, chocolate/toffee, vanilla. Medium body. Overall, a tasty brew.
