We use over two pounds of real vanilla beans in each seven barrel batch to infuse this brown porter with amazing complexity and a smooth rich flavor. There is nothing subtle about this beer.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle thanks to Doodler, thanks! Pours a dark bay with a grayish yellow brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong vanilla note with a bit of baking roasted malts. Flavor starts with vanilla but has a good amount of roasted malts in the finish and just a touch of bitter chocolate.

bottle shared by dere. pours near black with brown head that dissipated. nose is a good amount of roast behind the upfront vanilla sweetness. taste has that same dry roastyness that balances out thew sweet vanilla leading to a drinkable and enjoyable balanced brew.

A wonderful vanilla aroma. A beautifully sweet, vanilla front with a creamy, toasted malt finish. Delicious.

That1Guy (2195) - Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bomber split with TheRon. Pours opaque brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and DMS. Smells like corn on the cob with some ingredients thrown in. Watery corn and vanilla flavor. A borderline drain pour.

650 ml bottle courtesy of Denverdiv. Thanks. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a small beige head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is sweetened cocoa, vanilla and a bit of dust. The taste is more of the same, lots of sugary cocoa laced with vanilla and a trace of earthy/dusty hops. The palate was just a bit thinner than I prefer and the carbonation was soft. Finishes medium in duration and sweet with a pasty after-mouthfeel. Overall: Not bad, but not great either. The sweetness was too much for me and had a saccharine feel. That quibble aside its flavorful and easy drinking.

Beaver (1669) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small creamy light tan head that quickly goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet perfumey vanilla, some wood and some roasted chocolate malts. Smells a bit like lodgepole pines.

The flavor is lots of sweet vanilla with some roasted malts. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a bit thin and too much sweet vanilla for me. Better than Breck’s though.
