Bottle. Aroma is mild of coffee and very faint vanilla. Pours black with a fizzy head. Its more floral than coffee, with some vanilla extract showing pretty strong. Rather poor offering for a porter...very watery . It has a sweetness to it that ruins any hope for making this a good porter and leaves me unsatisfied. Theres some faint roastiness towards the end, but it doesnt save it. Bleh.

Pours a dark brown with some light. One finger light tan. Looks, smells, tastes similar to a brown ale. Nose is grainy, sweet, cloyingly so, tart, off. Flavor is grainy, astringent, weird tartness, no roast character, bad. Tart palate.

Draft. Dark brown, very thin and watery. Aroma is fake vanilla, weak and sickly sweet. No coffee flavor, really weak palate, and it tasted bad. Gross.

BeerBunker (956) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours brownish red with a foamy tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, cheap coffee, toasted malt, and brown sugar. Smells rather bland and uninspiring. Taste is of light chocolate, cheap gas station coffee, vanilla, and toasted malt. Lingering taste of vanilla. I was horribly dissapointed after the bottle deScription. The coffee and vanilla flavors are horribly subdued, and only the slightest hints of chocolate come through. The mouthfeel is creamy and very watery. It drinks easy, but it has very little flavor to it. What a huge dissapointment. Although, if you want a light beer with the slightest taste of coffee and vanilla, this is the beer to turn to.

blklab2007 (2108) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2009
bottle poured a dark nutty brown in color with a thin fizzy off white head. aroma has light coffee, chocolate, roast, and a bit of booze and vanilla. mouth feel falls a bit short with fizzy carbonation. flavor has bitter chocolate, smoked malt, vanilla extract, and some alcohol. a bit rough and not quite what i was hoping this would be.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Dark brown, light tan fizzy head. Light coffee and vanilla bean notes warm to hints of milk chocolate throughout. Metallic coffee flavor rounds with a fake vanilla- citrus feel. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Had some flaws I just can’t look pass…

Headbanger (3575) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2009
12oz bottle 6/9/09 (Courtesy of Immy)-Pours a dark brown with amber tints. Aroma of smoke and thats it. Taste of nothing then a little vanilla, chocolate, and smoke come across on the back end. This light to medium bodied brew has no Java and is very light and 1 dimensional. Petty disappointing.

Bottle. Dark amber brown pour, some carbonation. Aroma is rich with roasted malts, vanilla and chocolate. Although this smelled pretty good, the flavor was another issue. Nothing more than bitter and stale smoke and not much else. Bummer.
