3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 On tap at J Clyde. Dark brown with creamy tan head. Smell is an initial vanilla with roasted coffee hints. Taste is a lightly sweet touch of vanilla with a good malt finish. Almost too easy to drink. One of my favorites.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark black pour with a frothy head. Roasty and lightly sweet aroma, coffers too I think. Creamy coffee flavor with plenty of roast and a hint of vanilla. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant fresh stout aroma. Dark, thin head. Simple, but elegant flavor profile. This is the way a vanilla beer should be -- not cloying at all, just enjoyable. Medium light body. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 Draft in the tap room. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is sweet, some malt, bit of vanilla. Flavor is rich and sweet: mild roasted malt, quite sweet, slight hit of tartness. Vanilla is there, but not too pronounced -- downright subtle compared to other vanilla porters I’ve had. Palate is medium. Very drinkable.
