Pretty much the best local beer Iíve had in Eugene. I canít think of a more refreshing dark beer in my area. The aroma is very mild, hints of coffee, roasted charcoal and sugar. Very smooth and thin moutfeel that glides like silk. The flavor is what sold me. The vanilla is up front and honest, it isnít a background flavor but something up front and pleasant. I recommend this one.

One of the best flavors of beer I have had so far. Vanilla and Porter, mmmm, a perfect pair, smooth and bitter at the same time.

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.

Lots of vanilla plus chocolate and roasted malt. Not too sweet. Nice and creamy. Perfect dessert beer.

GABF. Dark brown pour. Tan head. Aroma of vanilla, hersheys syrup, prunes and cane syrup. Flavor is rich with vanilla and chocolate, good roasted malt structure and a nice roasty finish.

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.

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.

22 oz bottle bought from Rothís 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.
