Vanilla Porter pours into the glass with a deep brown, almost black color.
Its flavor is a very pleasant combination of vanilla and chocolate, with a very mild hoppiness. It's not a beer I would drink more than once in a session, but it is one that I would drink again many times.
Beer Advocate rates it "average to good" with a range of 79-84 out of 100.
Although I had this at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel Road, I've seen it for sale at a number of Columbus area retailers. I've found it at Kenny Road Market, The Andersons General Store, and others.
My rating: 8/10
