Straight up, I do not like this beer. It's really hard to tell someone who really loves porters to drink a porter without holding it up to the standards of another porter but maybe, if I could, enjoy this beer with a different mindset. However, a friend of mine was raving about the vanilla flavor so I was surprised at the strong fruit flavor. Its very fruit forward with the strongest being cherry. It feels as though the ingredients were just mixed together and immediately bottles. The color also wasnt as dark and somewhat red tinged (or maybe that was my imagination). Lastly, it was definitely thin. I do want to try it again 'with a different mindset' but I dont have high hopes.
