Pours a dark brown with medium tan head, decent lacing. Flavor strong of vanilla, roasted malt, and not a lot else. Flavor is bordering cloyingly sweet, but not bad otherwise.

Out of all the vanilla porters on the market, this one kicks butt. Bottle. Vanilla and malt aroma. Malty vanilla flavors, but it's more intense than other vanilla porters out there. Nice beer!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium brown with a medium head of tan foam. Not much aroma. Fairly thin and watery with not much flavor. Not really bad but just not that good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from bottle a deep dark brown with garnet depths, one-finger, slightly pinkish buff head that leaves some nice lacing.
Nose is roast malt, caramel, slight milk chocolate. First swallow had me asking where the vanilla was, but that came through stronger after a moment. Sprightly mix with the malt and lactose, balanced again chocolate and whiff of dark fruit without becoming heavy.
The selling points here are creamy mouthfeel, controlled alcohol and pleasant flavor not trying to pulverize your palate. A good session beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour. Pours a very dark brown with reddish tinges, and a tan head. Scent strongly indicates vanilla, some roast maltiness coming through. Flavor is strongly vanilla as well, with more usual stout aspects supporting. Only a little sweet, and with a dry finish. Nothing complex going on, but very drinkable.

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...
