Pours a light brown with a thick, lasting head. Aroma is very pronounced vanilla and some dark Malts. Taste is a balanced porter with a good hop bite to keep the sweet malt from over powering. The vanilla is present from beginning to end and is very pleasant. Delicious porter that easily made it into my order a second list.

hayduke (3380) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
On draft at Sesame restaurant in Ashland, Oregon. Came in the glass a near black with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Medium body and a smooth creamy mouth feel. Flavor shows lots of the vanilla, along with a good does of hops to balance the chocolate. Finishes bitter. Darn good beer.

jgb9348 (4749) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Rich deep brown coloured body with a nice thick three centimetre tall tan head and a nice violet coloured glow. Aroma of light malt, nuts, earth and perhaps the slightest bit of vanilla - relatively mild nose, not much going on. Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavour up front with a little brown sugar and pit fruits and a solid vanilla and sweet finish with not much malt at all. Aftertaste is very weak and watery with a touch of malt, some light nuts and a hint of the vanilla and sugars - but not much at all. Overall, not a great offering and even though I wasn’t expecting much, after seeing some of these scores, I thought i’d get a good beer - but it wasn’t to be. Too thin with a mild flavour makes for a decent beer, but not to the ratings that are here. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland (PDX Airport - Terminal D), Oregon on 08-December-2013 for US$4.95 sampled at home in New Paltz, New York on 18-January-2014.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Thanks to my father for sharing. Some dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, slightly sweet. The vanilla is restrained. Tasty porter.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Dark brown on the table turns to a glowing red held up to the light. Rich coffee scents. A coffee, nutty, chocolate taste then a light vanilla creaminess appears at the end, Slightly thin but tasty.
