Growler brought over by Matt on Saturday.

Pours a deep, dark inky black, with a 3/4 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells quite vanilla-y, with a bit of chocolate, but not enough roasted malt for my senses.

This is quite understandably vanilla forward, creamy and rich tasting, with a little bit of dark chocolate, and not really any roasted malt. If there was that roasty flavor to complement the sweet flavors, this would be much better.

This one has a very creamy mouthfeel, and a lower amount of carbonation. It's medium bodied, and pretty drinkable.

This is probably Rohrbach's best beer, they've never been my favorite brewery, but this one is a Rochester classic.

Poured out of a growler into a shaker glass.

A- awesome root beer color: dark mohogany with a nice quarter inch lace. Lace falls down quickly. Looks like it has low carbonation.

S- sweet roast with a hint of vanilla. No hop nose distinguishable.

T- sweetish, buttery, roasted coffee. Touch of vanilla. Not as hoppy as some porters are. Somewhat astringent but not annoyingly so. Finishes quite dry.

M- thin and with low carbonation.

O- My first Rohrbach sampling and I enjoyed the hell out of it. To me, this beer cries out drinkability. Its not a hoppy porter. It's a session porter with enough roastiness and hop dryness to fit the bill. Overall, it is a very drinkable and refreshing beer with just enough qualities to hit the spot when a porter is what I am looking for.
