Foamy head with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel with more of a malty aftertaste than hoppy. Has a slightly sour vanilla aroma like a custard. More complex than some other vanilla porters ive tried, such as the leine snowdrift vanilla porter

There are many vanilla porters out there with varying degrees of deliciousness. This BB vanilla porter is one of the best.

Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver.
Cola black with a light beige head. The aroma is soft pats, vanilla and chocolate. Nice. Smooth luscious body which is probably all down to the Nitro. The taste is sugary sweet vanilla that seems like extract plus chewey oat like malt character. Alright but I can’t believe the best beer I had here was a boring amber ale. These guys brew macro-style craft...

This is a fun beer. Not pretentious, just easily approachable porter with vanilla aroma. Perfect with vanilla ice cream. Good dark malt, low hop bitterness and real vanilla aroma. Nice

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a kind of reddish brown, transparent, with a finger of head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose is sweet vanilla and a little bit of roast. Taste is heavy on the sweet vanilla, with a little bit of roasty malt in for some backbone. This just doesn’t say porter to me.

Great vanilla bean smell at pour. Sweet, almost a desert beer smell. Finishes as an average vanilla porter.
