COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Truly a one-of-a-kind. We balance coffee-like, dark roasted malts with the sweet, seductive flavor of vanilla beans. The result? A deliciously unique flavor.

Deep brown from the bottle with an off-white head. Chocolate, vanilla, and caramel aromas make it very sweet like crème brule. Medium body but low mouthfeel. Toasted malts, chocolate, and brown sugar flavors with no hop presence. Finish is the same as the start.

Rarely does a beer smell so little. Doesn’t smell bad just doesn’t smell. Slight vanilla and slight roast. Black with off white head. Good lacing. Looks good. Tastes like vailla with slight chocolate and roast. Medium to full body for style. Good session porter.

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of light coffee, chocolate and vanilla notes. Flavor of milk chocolate and vanilla.

I did not really like the taste, but it is unique. I cannot smell or taste Vanilla or Chocolate, but it makes a great handmade shampoo bar. My best yet! This batch makes hair soft and gorgeous. If anyone is going to make beer soap or shampoo bars, you must let it go completely flat or you may have a lye volcano. You can contact me if you want any more information on shampoo bars. I will buy it again, my customers love the shampoo bars:)

Indra (2616) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2012
12oz. bottle. Nose of sweet chocolate and vanilla, with dark, bready and very lightly roasty malts, faint hints of cherry cola and coffee here as well. Deep, dark brown in color, nearly black, with a lasting, fine, light tan head, unfiltered as advertised, with a slight amount of sediment which was poured. Flavor profile is full of dark sweetness, vanilla and chocolate as well, but not overwhelmingly so, the overall effect is of a mild sweetness and vanilla tone, rather than making this the only factor. Some mild roast, faint licorice and coffee towards the finish, which also shows a very light tinge of hop bitterness. Finely effervescent and smooth on the palate with a medium body. Nicely drinkable, not bad at all for what it is.

Dark brown pour, vanilla aroma stands out. Taste is definitely more a brown than it is a porter. Nothing extraordinary. Beats a Coors Light ----Hophaze out

Steasy66 (882) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Not quite black, 1 finger white head. Roast and a lot of vanilla in the nose. Quite sweet with a little roast. More of a brown ale than a porter. Pleasant beer.

On tap. Comes almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and roast. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. Fairly sweet. Interesting.

Also think this smells like spoiled milk. Can really taste the vanilla beans. Will not buy again.

This beer smells like spoiled milk and tastes like candied milk. It is disgusting and I can’t believe it’s rated so high.
