Nice flavors of vanilla, roasted coffee, sweet cream and cocoa. Body was a bit light for me. Good tasting beer that probably just needs some tweaks to improve.

Aroma is vanilla and sweet chocolate. Taste is similar ....vanilla sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Not a lot of depth.

355ml bottle. Pours nearly black with a one finger, khaki head that thins to a ring. Aroma has large notes of vanilla with some sweet chocolate, and faint roast. Taste is slightly bitter. Mild vanilla, slight chocolate, and a bitter coffee ending. Low-medium body and with a low carbonation. Thin texture. Nearly watery with a dry finish. Overall ok. Definitely get vanilla with some coffee notes at the end. Needs to have a fuller body for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
