4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Very sweet smelling. Strong hints of vanilla.
Appearance: thin line of creamy head off of pour, solid coffee color but still able to see through the glass.
Taste: Great taste. Not too overpowering in the coffee or the vanilla. Excellent balance of flavors.
Palate: Creamy mouth feel, flavors on the tip and back of the tongue.
Overall: Excellent beer. I would definitely seek this one out again for a stout/porter night.

bottle. Deep brown with small head. Rich porter with moderate vanilla. Also, a hint of chocolate? It’s hard to mess up a vanilla porter, and there are no issues here.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a deep amber with no real head. Some carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma. Distinct vanilla flavour. Not as much chocolate as I would have liked. Slightly slick texture. No real bitterness. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Overall, fairly nice but nothing overly special.

An awesome vanilla porter from breckenridge. Super easy to drink, super strong on the vanilla flavor. Pours a dark brown in color and smells like vanilla. Had at American junkie

I did not like this one much at all. It is fairly sweet, lacks bitterness, and is dark in color but has only a weak roast in the aroma. The vanilla combined with the sweetness makes it taste a lot more like cream soda than a typical beer. Pretty disappointing. I love vanilla when it’s paired with a drier beer, or a richer, more bitter and complex beer, but this one was just too simple and sweet, and too much like a soft drink.

12 oz poured into pint glass. Appears dark brown with finger of off white head. Smells of chocolate and caramel, no vanilla, roast coffee. Tastes of caramel coffee with a hint of sweet and a bit of vanilla. The palate is thin and smooth. Not bad! I just wish for a more vanilla flavor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red pour with a single finger head. Creamy mouth. Aroma is full of grain and hints of vanilla. Taste is bready. This is kind of like sucking on a vanilla candy. Slightly medicinal. Tons of lace.

Had high hopes for this beer, but very disappointed. Way too light for a porter, where is the flavor? And the vanilla seemed out of place. Not for me.
