One way to describe this beer is “a dark beer for people who don’t like dark beers.” Another way is “delicious.” Notes of cocoa, espresso, and delicately roasted barley blend nicely with real Mexican vanilla from Arizona Vanilla Company. This medium bodied, highly sippable beer is quickly becoming a local favorite.

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, burnt malts and vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, hint of chocolate, touch of bitter espresso and syrupy vanilla. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, pretty good porter.

Can. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong vanilla and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with rich chocolate, sweet vanilla, good.

DMLINAZ (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at The Little Woody, Phoenix. This is an enjoyable, flavorful porter; flavors of Porter and vanilla were present, and it developed more flavor as it warmed. I prefer some underlying bitterness in a porter that isn’t present here, but I don’t think that’s by accident; this is supposed to be easy to drink, and it is. Medium consistency.

DiarmaidBHK (3854) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Draft at World of beer Tempe. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has a lot of artificial smelling vanilla in the nose. Tastes of fake vanilla and burned malt. Finish lingers a bit which sucks since I hate the taste of this beer.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
A dark brown porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate malt with milk, coffee, and coconut. In mouth, a sweet grassy and herbaceous chocolate with vanilla, mocha, very sweet but not overbearing.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate long duration. This is the good brew.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Tap at Pig and Pickle in Scottsdale AZ. Deep cola red looking black. Weak fizzing out foam. Nose is thicker vanilla extract, sugar, cola drink, mild plastic. Taste is moderately lactic sour, some dusty cocoa bitterness, more sweet vanilla. A tad artificial for me.

Zymurgeist2 (1427) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a deep brown with a nice brown head. Moderate (in a great way), subtle vanilla with slight roast. Flavors follows through with the vanilla lending a soft rounded mouthfeel. Quality beer and my favorite from the tasting session.

JPDurden24 (1664) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Brown pour, tan head with some nice vanilla aromas with perhaps a small amount of chocolate fudge. Taste is very similar with a touch of roast. It is a very tasty vanilla porter.
