Aroma has roasted malt, coffee and vanilla that overrides the two previous. Flavour is dry with vanilla, some coffee and hints of chocolate. A bit weird but nice.

First taste of this cold is actually more impressive than as it warms. Odd. Pours a dark brown with ruby accent. Great vanilla and chocolate aroma. Slight coffee. Taste is chocolate and vanilla. Touch of wood. Decent. As I say, I had higher hopes of this after warming when I tasted it right after tap pour.

Had it at Beermongers in Portland. Pours a dark black color with a medium brown head. The aroma is rich roast and vanilla. The flavor is a basic roasty porter with lots of natural vanilla notes, some sweetness but not cloying. Quite good.

This is a very good creamy, smooth vanilla porter. It has a hint of vanilla and nice burnt malt character. It has a mild palate

Some brown highlights. Like a coffee with a hazelnut syrup to the nose. Very fizzy which turns into a dreamy cream in the mouth. Superbly nutty and vanilla fully with some burnt malt bitterness. This is super tasty you guys.

A good porter, nice chocolate body with lots of tasty roast malts. Smells very much of vanilla, and has a great head, but not so much in the taste.

This is a darkish beer with a light tan head. It has a light roast, malt aroma with a nice vanilla. You can really taste the vanilla and malt flavor along with a light caramel. It is really a nice pairing, slightly sweet, vanilla and light bitter flavor.
