it does get props for having vanilla in taste and aroma, but feels gimmicky; more soda like drink than beer - thin side; meh.

"dark brown with a tan head. aroma is a little weak. watery roasted malt and vanilla, with a hint of roasted coffee. palate a little weak as well. leaning more towards a brown ale. needs to be more robust. the flavor is pleasant, but nothing too special. lots of vanilla. a little coffee at first...lots in the finish. good, but no depth. i’ll give it an 8...realy more like a 7.4-7.5, but a 3.3 overallis fair. just an ok beer. running out of trade beers from Lou. Frick!"

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Thanks to KenW. Such an incredibly slippery palate. Thinner than many porters too. Serving: Bottle

One of our favorite. Classic go-to for a slightly sweet, not heavy coffee, a hint of cocoa, and asmooth vanilla porter. Easy drinking. Good cold and flavors enhance as it warms.

500ml from tap. Aroma is light vanilla, malt. Appearance is dark black with a light brown-ish head. Taste is sweet, and light bitter. A soft carbonation. Very sweet finish. OK.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Amazing aromas of coffee. Definitely a robust porter! Lots of delicious malt, coffee flavors with a hint of vanilla.

Tap at tap house Munich. Black, low brown head. Milk chocolate nose. Vanilla, coffee, roast, brown sugar flavor. Light body, mellow mouthfeel. Feels fresh despite the desert flavors.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nose of vanilla, chocolate with hints of coffee. A solid black-brown pour with a thin khaki head and no lacing. Vanilla pounces on the tongue and doesn’t leave much room for anything else. Coffee, hints of chocolate, and cola. Medium-light body with modest carbonation. Overall, a politely sweet porter but definately not a "robust porter". Ok, but nothing outstanding.
