Brown thin , beer with a thin head to match. Potent vanilla aroma and flavor. It’s almost too much. took an hour for a bomber.

Draft pour at The Collective. Dark brown pour with a fizz ring head. Vicious sweet aroma. Flavor is play dough. Super sweet. Chocolate, but too artificial. Not my type of porter, but could be much worse.

Tasty but vaguely disappointing because I love porters and vanilla so had high expectations this didn’t quite reach. A little too sweet and thin and not enough complexity.

Like used motor oil, opaque dark brown, nearly black. Has a puffy tan head, fades quickly, nice lacing. Has the very expected coffee and unsweetened baking chocolate scents. Hearty Porter taste and as advertised, coffee, chocolate & vanilla. Has a very nice bittersweet, or I should say, sweet then bitter flavor. I was hesitant about the vanilla, expecting a gimmicky artificial vanilla flavor but this is really good, I wouldn’t call it subtle but it is artfully balanced and enhances the Porter flavors instead of overwhelming them. Kudos to the lads at Knee Deep!

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Seems like a brown ale to me with vanilla flavoring. It’s not bad but I feel like the vanilla is not making it better just sweeter. Good enough though to make me want to try the imperial version.

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours almost black with small beige head. Aroma of vanilla and roasted malt. In taste sweet and roasty with rather sweet vanilla like finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth. Nice but to sweet for me.

zgaier (1842) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bomber. Pours black with a tan head and sweet vanilla, roasted malt aroma. Taste is full of vanilla, creamy with roasted malt and chocolate coffee notes into the finish. Delicious brew

With Z, a bomber, pours a rich deep black pour with an ephemeral Java head. Nose is sweet vanilla with rich malt . Taste is sweet vanilla with sweet malt and some hints of a mocha Java. Finishes on the light tasting notes, sweetly with a dry vanilla ending. Light and drinkable ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Not enough vanilla flavor, more tobacco flavor. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
