Apologies for the typo in the title.

This poured a cola color with a thin layer of foam. There’s a pronounced vanilla note on the aroma. The flavor has a heavy dose of vanilla and skews on the sweetish side of things for a porter. Thinly bodied with little roast to contrast the sugar-cookie vanilla sweetness.

The vanilla flavor taste a little artificial and is almost overwhelming at times. Not a bad porter just a little out of balance IMO

It poured a dark black color with a tan head. The smell is of vanilla mixed with coffee. The taste is a silky smooth coffee and the vanilla is a nice aftertaste. A enjoyable rich drink.
