This is the best of the Atwater beer I’ve had via my BOTM club. That being said, this Porter could use some body. For a porter Its a little thin tasting The aroma is a mix of chocolate, tobacco and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is a mix of the chocolate malt and vanilla. I couldn’t really taste the coffee. The label says this beer is an award winning porter but then again so does Miller Lite. On the upside I used one of these beers to make some BBQ sauce and it worked well.

Opaque in color. Little head for the style. A very bold, sweet aroma......very noticeable hints of coffee and vanilla. Sweetness of the vanilla hits up front with slight coffee undertones. Malty back with a long coffee aftertaste. Slightly crisp, yet creamy mouthfeel.

pretty yummy starts with a vanilla taste then blends into a chocolate java bean type taste. seemed thin though which was a drawback

Bottle: More brown than the black I expected, with a rolling top of tight foam. The aroma is sweet and smoky all at once. This drinks without any real standout characteristics. I don’t get much of any vanilla in this, despite the moniker. There is a hint of coffee, but not much, either. It’s just moderately ashy and roasty, but one that would be easy to drink for anyone.

Bottle from Beer Club: Poured a dark dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma was that of coffee, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor was alright with a strong coffee flavor...it was a very smooth beer but I couldn’t really taste or smell the vanilla. I’m still looking for that vanilla. Decent beer overall.

Coffee in color with almost no head that fades to a ring around the glass. Aroma is like a punch in the face. It hits you with vanilla, malt, coffe, and hints of toffee. On the palate there is a rich coffe flavor which mingles nicely with the vanilla and malt. There is definately a ton of flavor but it doesnt feel super heavy. Lingering finish.

Typical porter appearance, dark body thin tan head. Aroma was very rich with vanilla along with some roasted coffee. Flavor seemed a bit lacking in the vanilla dept, it was present but very mild. Aroma led me to expect more. Water feeling on the palate.

Microbrew of the month issue. Sweet smell of vanilla, strong taste of vanilla and sweet aftertaste. Small white head with a dark, medium to full body. Microbrew of the month club sent this to me. It’s too sweet for my tastes.
