Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle, 0.65l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Pours dark brown with medium soapy tan-like head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, white coffee and caramel. Tastes starts with moderate sweet roasted malt, follows by smooth and milky vanilla with caramel note, mouthfeel is silky, while finish is light bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Excellent dessert beer...

stevoj (4022) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. Pours out a dark but clear brown with nice, tall fluffy head. Vanilla edges out the roast grains in the aroma, but both balance out in the taste. Roast grains finish the whole deal with a dry, lingering bite. Not overly sweet, which is nice.

JorisPPattyn (9530) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
Small greige head over black-brown beer. Sweetish, bit dusty, vanilla, malts. Vanilla, liquorice, lavender, dry wood, pine. Harsh resiny vanilla finish. Medium bodied, well-carbonated. Bad it isn’, if a tad light. But the vanilla gets too harsh in the aftertaste. I get quite some lavender, too. Thx to M & L V!

Acid303 (671) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 5, 2016
65cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Dark brown colour with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, licorice and hints of smoke. Same flavours, but even more tasty than expected. The aftertaste is pretty much like milk chocolate despite the vanilla, with pleasant roasty notes. Full body, good carbonation. A very well balanced beer, highly recommended as a dessert one.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2016
Bomber shared by Jan, thanks! Vanilla porter with thick, creamy, lacing, pale yellowish beige head and deep burgundy robe with blackish ’soul’ yet still translucent, lightly hazy. Attractive aroma of indeed dry vanilla beans, cocoa powder, quite a lot of ’natural’ iron, toffee, beef stock cubes, hazelnut, some vague coffee grounds, bitter chocolate. Soft basic blackberry sourishness in onset paired with subdued banana sweetness and a light cured meat-like umami accent; softish carbo, smooth, slick and somewhat thin body, caramelly and nutty maltiness with a bittering toasted edge and some retronasal vanilla aroma which I expected (and hoped) to be stronger, honestly speaking. But then, this bottle already crossed the Atlantic and I can imagine an aroma as volatile and fragile as vanilla has faded in the meantime. Caramelly and toasted bittersweetness lingers after swallowing. Perfectly decent porter, but I expected something with a bit more ’oomph’, I guess...
