4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle -
This is an absolute steal at $6.00 a bomber. This beer is chock-full of vanilla in both the aroma and flavor with a fair amount of residual sweetness left to help the vanilla flavor really deliver. Sweet, marshmallowy vanilla, light roast and a good showing of cocoa. Reminded me of a sugar coffee at Starbuck’s in some ways. I personally enjoy my porters and stouts to be sweet, so this was fine for me. A solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a dark brown in color with a thin layer of mocha head. Aroma has chocolate, rich brown malts, and very faint vanilla. Mouth feel is medium with low side carbonation. Flavor has a malted core, mild bitterness, vanilla extract, chocolate, and some burnt bits into the finish.

"pours fairly thick and dark brown, thinner on the palate than it looks. strong aroma of vanilla (which may be scaled back in the final product), roasted & chocolate malts. smooth as hell, light-medium bodied. flavor much the same. the vanilla dominates but not overly so. goes down way too easy, and disappears way too fast."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Liquide embouteillé le 8/19/13. Robe brune de porter avec un col bien crémeux et une dentelle. Nez vanillé sur un fond de notes rôties et métalliques finement surettes. Goût de café noir surchauffé et de vanille grillée. Présence d’une acidité noire plus ou moins plaisante. Corps de moyenne densité avec une texture de lait entier et une effervescence normalisée. Finale métallique avec un effet âcre de la vanille. Pas fameux mais sûrement la note de passage en ce qui me concerne.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big time vanilla flavor, backed with a coffee flavored body. I feel like the vanilla really overwhelms everything and is to much for me personally. Definitely a beer to drink with desert.

Draft at brewery. Strong coffee and chocolate nose. Pour is pitch black with a light brown head. Taste is moderately vanilla with some milky notes, like a sweet stout. Sweet and smooth.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong vanilla notes lead in the aroma of the beer with slight coffee notes following. It is a beautiful black color. Strong vanilla flavor and it is much more mild a a whole lot lighter than a typical porter. Flavor is a little too mild and fleeting for me.

Pretty nice stout. Dark malt flavor that brings about tastes of coffee, herbs and a vanilla taste. But not the artificial vanilla flavor but more of a bitter natural vanilla. If you have ever tried raw vanilla you know what im talking about. All in all I think the bitter of the vanilla coincides well with the stout. I found it drinkable and well crafted.
