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.

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.

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, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger light tan head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some nice chocolate/toffee notes, nice touch of vanilla, some nuttyness. The taste is pretty nice malty, nice touch of chocolate/toffee, vanilla, some nuttyness. Medium body. Overall, a nice brew.

Unique can labeling info: none noted.

Dark brown body with a thick, frothy head. Fine roasted grain aroma; coffee; bitter chocolate. Strong milk chocolate flavor tempered with a vanilla sweetness and hazelnut bitterness. Medium-light body; semi-sweet finish.

A weak, watery body detracts from an otherwise fine tasting, great looking, and excellently scented dark ale.
