monk191 (1731) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2015
A good vanilla porter, but a little thin in taste. Pours a deep brown-black with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, coffee, cinnamon and oak. Taste starts off slow, again, a bit thin, but the vanilla and oak opens up in the finish. Had in the bottle.

AshtonMcCobb (5151) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - opaque black with a nice crema head. Nose - dark chocolate and burnt toffee. Taste - the burnt toffee leads in and the chocolate is very dry or bittersweet as the description on the bottle suggests. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy but very dry texture and a long dry finish. Overall - I’m struggling to get much vanilla.
