bartlebier (2654) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015
22oz bottle, Hopduvel 02/2015, no bb detectable. Natural enough vanilla bean aromas almost merge with Cécémel and coffee bean roast. Taste merges prominent vanilla-flavoured milk coffee with dank exotic hops, postmodern cold aluminium, some bean sourness and tang. Bitnwatery maybe, hence easy quaffer. Crowd pleasing adult candy with manageable infusion pyrotechnics and good hoppage.

(Tap) Draft. Nice but slightly more bitter than it should be. Should be more smooth. Okay I guess.

Beetje cola kleur met een volle fijne lichtbruine kraag. Ruikt vanille, crème, koffie. Beetje chocolade. Fijne zacht zoete geur. Smaakt zoetig, bitter, koffie, vanille.

Great beer, very smooth for a Porter Ale. Good with about everything. Can even use it as a vanilla float. Great aroma and appearance with a smooth taste. Overall a very good Porter.

Koskela (409) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Vanilla and choc sweetness come from this deep brown brew with a creamy brown head. I get a crisp and bitterish taste up front with choc but not much vanilla. Its a medium bodied brew. For a porter not bad.
