Woah- Vanilla indeed. The vanilla is probably too strong in this one, but it is an interesting beer anyways. The java is probably equally as understated. The porter at the base is good. I wonder if Atwater makes a straight up porter.

Bottled, black with almost no head. Smelled like coffee and baked beans. Tastes like burnt baked beans, roasty, cocoa. Not a fan.

BLADT (586) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Jet black. Thin head. Chocolate milkshake nose. Vanilla extract. Taste is more of the same. A little disjointed. Thin on the palate. Has a brew-by-numbers quality to it.

chucklemation (453) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet vanilla and some coffee. Flavor is also dominated by vanilla, with some coffee notes. Moderate carbonation helps. Has a light body and flavor, but is nonetheless tasty and refreshing.

On tap at Yardhouse (Raleigh). Pours dark brown. Strong vanilla aroma. Vanilla dominates the taste, with coffee following nicely. Not bad... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draught) pours a hazy dark ruby-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy vanilla, crème brûlée and light roasted malts, with a hint of milk chocolate, honey and fudge. flavour is mostly black tea, more vanilla and toasted malts, slightly chalky, with a hint of hazelnuts in the finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
