12oz btl. Pours a good dark black. Not a strong aroma but has a sweet sugar and a definate roastiness with a slight vanilla. Flavor is the same kinda coffe roasty taste with some chicory as well. Didn’t get much vanilla out of it, but its slightly sweet. Real light mouthfeel and not as heavy as it looks. Not as good as i hoped.

Bottle. Pours a solid dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt and noticeable vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, malt, mild coffee, and vanilla. There is a real cola feel to this with the sweetness and body which is most noticeable on the finish. Very thin body with medium carbonation which is amplified by the lack of depth and body. Very sweet porter. I like the presence of vanilla here but this really feels more like a soda than anything else.

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!"

Thanks to KenW. Such an incredibly slippery palate. Thinner than many porters too. Serving: Bottle

katrinaez (67) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

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.
