Reid (1905) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2013
22 oz bottle bought from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $3.50 Pours a good porter dark brown with a lovely thick,creamy and bubbly tan head. Aroma a little subdued but it has the typical porter roasted malts and a touch of vanilla essence. Flavour is well balanced with more of the roasty,burnt malts and the vanilla well mixed in but not too forward ( like many vanilla porters). Good. Mouth feel is nice and smooth ..no trouble getting this over the tongue! Very nice beer..better than the usual vanilla porter for sure.

Bottle - pours pitch black with medium head. Nose of roasted malt, coffee, some hints if vanilla. Thick and frothy mouthfeel. Taste is of creamy dark chocolate, coffee, malt, with a bitter vanilla finish. Bitterness seems to linger at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Dark brown color. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is deep roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a little more vanilla flavor. Fairly smooth but the roasting almost is too overpowering in the finish, concealing the vanilla.

This was a nice porter, started out smooth, followed by vanilla fading into nice chocolate richness, then finished the same way it started
