TempeCoyote (63) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Growler fill from 4 Sons on Indian School. Deep dark pour with a thin off white head. Very much as promised with a full vanilla and cherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor and light roasted malt flavor make this taste creamy like a desert unto itself. It doesn't have much of a thick or lingering mouthfeel though so unlike many fruit beers, especially dark ones, this one is easy to finish more than a glass of. Definitely worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro pour. Dark chocolate in color and opacity, with a pancake batter head. Aroma is cocoa powder, toasted marshmallow, tart cherry. Flavor is more muted, with the smooth marshmallow offsetting slightly more acidic cherry. Very chuggable beer.

A big hit at our party, but I thought it was too much -- too much cherry, and too much vanilla. If they dialed it back just a little bit . . . .

Draft. Clear mahogany. Small tan head. Vanilla leads. Then some chocolate followed by roast. Cherries are truly just a hint. Watery. Flavors and aroma seemed almost washed out. Not bad, but I did not find it as good as many of the previous raters.

Draft at ohso, nothing wrong with it, it should be well rated I just can’t stand strong vanilla beers and this is all vanilla.

lachrymalisis (424) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
A decent beer. Good clean flavors, but the cherry flavoring is apparent, and that really disturbs me. It really is a nice porter at it’s core, but the cherry flavoring knocks it down,

brokensail (12915) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
On tap @ Historic Brewing. Dark brown, nearly black in color with a khaki head. Super power file vanilla and maple aromas. Mostly vanilla, though. A nice roasted malt note, baked cherry, and cocoa. Flavor is quite sweet, not surprising given all the vanilla. Hints of maple and baked fruit. Some chocolate syrup, roast, and coffee.

DesertDevil (634) - Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2014
On draft at Spokes on Southern. Sweet cherry pie filling and syrupy dark malt aromas dominate the subdued nose with a hint of coffee. Pours a slightly murky dark reddish-brown. The taste is nicely rich (but not overpowering) with moderate cherries, malted chocolate, smooth vanilla extract, and a light light-roasted coffee touch with a brief roasty bitterness to provide some balance. It reminds me a bit of a cherry vanilla-chocolate Coca-Cola without the overt cloying sweetness. The palate is properly to style: medium body with a slightly slick texture. A good daily-drinker porter with a balanced blend of fruit and maltiness. Well done, Historic!

maley1 (888) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Dark brown, almost black pour with creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, cherries and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, cherries and vanilla. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lower carbonation, delicious!

Growler thanks to Ilya! Pours a near clear deep amber brown with a taupe head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of chocolate with dark grains and backing vanilla. Flavor has much lighter chocolate, mainly slightly dark grains, cherry and vanilla.
