Aroma of vanilla, hint of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Poured a dark mahogany brown. Had a nice foamy, light tan head that quickly dissipitated. Left light lacing on the Pint Glass. Beer had no cap after the head was gone. Flavor of vanilla that was quickly overcome by a strong softly bitter coffee with hints of chocolate and roasted malt with vanilla coming back at the end. The bitter coffee flavor seemed to increase as I drank it, a bit too strong for me, but that is me, those who like a strong bite or strong bitter in their beer will enjoy this. Body was a light to medium, with a slightly thin texture, carbonation started strong but died down quickly to become weak. A strongly bitter finish. A nice Porter, especially if you like coffee. While I liked the beer, I wouldn’t buy again for its just not my style of Porter. But, if you like strong coffee and strong bitter flavor in your Porters, do give this a try!

Pours a deep dark brown, not much head, but what is there is very good looking. Malty flavor with some hints of vanilla, well balanced. Not the best porter, but i’ve had worse.

Clear garnet with a thick beige head. Sour nose... hmmm... some coffee and chocolate. Flavor is light coffee and chocolate, but a sourness permeates the entire ber. Infected? Not sure, but certainly not good. Drain pour.

Not bad, but certainly not great. Having experimented with vanilla in porters, it just does not work. Maybe there are better vanilla porters out there...if so please email me!!

This was a nice porter and VERY much vanilla in taste. This would be good with or poured over some Breyer’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. A nearly opaque, dark brown color resembling cola. Funky, metallic, mocha aroma. Light to medium body with a thin, dry texture. Strange, tangy, tart flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Unimpressive.

this beer was good. Very sweet. almost too sweet. ALMOST. I really enjoyed sipping this beer. It’s a winner. For a porter thought..... its too sweet. Maybe this should have been label a sweet stout. I don’t know - enjoy one a night - no more than that.
