Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours black with minimal dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Vanilla dominates the start with coffee in the middle and finishing with some dark chocolate. Full bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Somewhat fizzy carbonation and a very long finish. Great beer overall. I would love to try this super fresh though.

12oz Bottle. Aroma is vanilla with some chocolate malt. Appearance is a dark brown with no head. Taste is toasty which goes quickly to vanilla. Finishes a dark malt, almost burnt flavor. Overall, a derby beer. Would be nice on a cold day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - vigorous pour and a minimal kakhi head. Dark coffee aroma and taste. Very thin even for a porter. Some vanilla in there but just not that good.

It’s a chocolate malt where you can definitely smell the coffee and vanilla. It’s a dark and heavy beer that starts to taste bitter after a while. First half of bottle better than second.

Very average. Easy drinking, but will leave you wanting a little more body and balance here. Tastes almost watered down.

LOVE this beer. Great aroma of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. It is a bit heavy on the tongue but the taste is incredible. Very smooth, definitely best to be used as a dessert beer rather than with a meal.

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a very dark black. Aroma is a coffee with a chocolate chip cookie. Taste is a after dinner coffee and sweet malt. Finish is clean.

It’s a chocolate malt where you can definitely smell the coffee and vanilla. The only downside with this amazing beer is that I can only have a couple of sips before it gets to be too much for me. It’s a dark and heavy beer that starts to taste bitter after a while.

frothy, white foam, fair lacing, muddy/cloudy, dark black appearance. chocolate, coffee, toasty malt notes. Musty yeast aromas. medium sweetness and lightly bitter. full body, thick feel, creamy, flat, long finish. My favorite porter so far in my drinking career (not very long). Love that it is made in Detroit and I think it trumps the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter (don’t worry Breck you have better skiing).
