3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Chocolate aroma with notes of roasted barley and vanilla. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin, light brown head that dissipates quickly and minimal lacing. Sweet chocolate malt to start with toasty flavor and a hint of coffee. Finishes smooth with a good amount of vanilla. Lacks the rich mouthfeel of most most porters, but still very tasty.

I don’t understand the high rates on this one. Bomber purchased from bubbles in castle rock. Maybe a slight vanilla in aroma and wood. Thinner than water palete. One of rare times I rate a 2 for palate. Not much flavor. Over carbonated

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with highlights, a finger of tan head with decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla, marshmallow and milk chocolate. Taste vanilla, coffee and milk chocolate with a moderate amount of roastiness. Mouthfeel is watery with a light body and medium carbonation. Needs to have a bigger body and I wanted a stronger porter presence.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best Vanilla Porter I’ve ever had to date. It had a light to medium body yet came strong with full flavored vanilla and caramel taste throughout. It was almost reminiscent of a cream soda with a amazing beautiful finish. I could drink this porter everyday of the week, I seriously hope they get into making 4-6 packs to enjoy. If you get a chance to try this gem, DO IT!

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.
