KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle. The pour was murky and almost black in color with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that had decent retention, reducing slowly to a thin cap with some good streaky lacing. The aroma was a lot like french vanilla coffee with some roasted chocolate malts and a sweet yeast and had notes of dark chocolate, vanilla and dark roasted coffee. The taste was lightly sweet and a bit bitter with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate from the onset with the finish having a more pronounced bitter coffee taste. The flavor hung around for an average duration after the swallow and had a mild bitter sweet coffee ending. Mouthfeel was a few shades above medium in body and a tad oily in texture with a good strong carbonation. Overall a Coffee Porter that has a lot more vanilla in the aroma than in the taste, but all in all it was a nice smooth tasty brew...

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

katrinaez (55) - 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.

jonas (5645) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
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.

Beerenberger (1448) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Nose of vanilla, chocolate with hints of coffee. A solid black-brown pour with a thin khaki head and no lacing. Vanilla pounces on the tongue and doesn’t leave much room for anything else. Coffee, hints of chocolate, and cola. Medium-light body with modest carbonation. Overall, a politely sweet porter but definately not a "robust porter". Ok, but nothing outstanding.

12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Pours a clear thin dark brown color with a small creamy tan head. Aroma of tootsie rolls, light roasted coffee, and vanilla. Taste of sour bitter coffee, bad chocolate, vanilla extract, and roasted malt.
