5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Roasty nose.   A little ash and campfire, but not really getting much Vanilla.   Ah, there we go... the Vanilla comes out on the tongue.   Roasted malts are there, but are light.   Vanilla isnt too strong, but hefty enough that you cannot miss it.   Smooth overall, but the body could use a little more malt backing.   The roastiness comes back at the finish.   Decent beer, the Vanilla isn’t too soft, nor does it make it a mess (as some others I have had), but I really wished this one was a bit more chewy.   Otherwise pretty interesting.

douglas88 (6034) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2012
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.

laiti (5697) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Draught @ Hawthorne Hophouse. Rated on 11.07.2012
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.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Dark brown color, short off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight chocolate and mocha, slight hint of vanilla. Medium sweet in taste, with more vanilla present. Slight dry and bitter as well. I was expecting much more vanilla, but its almost non-present in aroma and more present in flavor, but all quite subtle. Felt more like a dry stout than a porter, with some vanilla added. Not bad, a bit weak perhaps.
