4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably one of my favorite beers at the moment. Had it from the tap at Avondale. Rich flavor with a dark appearance with a tannish head. Tremendous taste, and I usually do not prefer Porters.

A downright impressive porter! Iím always skeptical of porters that have flavorings in the description, but this one nails it. The "Vanillaphant" as it has been termed, is always my go-to beer when I stop in the tap room. Additionally, it is one of the best dark beers that J Clyde offers.

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.

Dark brown/almost black. Good vanilla, but not overwhelming...long finish, with hints of chocolate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of vanilla, lactose, chocolate, graham cracker, and roasted sweet malt. Flavor of sweet malt with roast and vanilla in the finish. Some roasted coffee and nuts too. A touch sweet but itís good and has a complex flavor profile for a porter. Good stuff!

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.

Rich caramel/vanilla aroma with nutty and coffee notes. Flavor is more tame with a nicely bitter finish. Good show!

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 Iíve had. Palate is medium. Very drinkable.
