3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The vanilla and chocolate notes jump out in the aroma. The appearance is an opaque black with a white head that quickly fizzles into some lacing. The taste is velvety smooth milk chocolate. Thereís a slight bitterness at the finish as the beer is pretty well balanced. Pretty enjoyable overall!

Smells, and tastes like a porter with some vanilla added. This fortunate, because this what this is. I like vanilla in porters, so this works for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark black-brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of mainly vanilla with some coco, and faint coffee in the background. Taste is dominated by vanilla, with some coco, coffee, roasted malts, and and caramel. Has medium body with a slightly creamy mouthffeel. a short, almost too sweet finish. overall, a interesting porter that could use a little less vanilla and a little more body.

Bottle poured into glass. Wow! Ton of vanilla chocolate in this one. Itís unavoidable. More of a dessert then a beer. Itís a one and done though, too sweet for more then one.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
a vanilla, rootbeer and cream soda with some malt in the back and some bitterness even furthur down. a decent drink, but a brew? genuine vanilla flavor adds class to a non descript drink. substantive enough body and a ivy wood character just keeps this an odd one instead of bad. a bit of brewed gravy from time to time invades the sugary sweetness.

22oz bottle. Black\dark brown color, white head. Aroma of vanilla beans & brownie batter. Tastes of roasted malts, some burnt grains, coffee and vanilla. Not what Iíd regularly look for in a Porter. Nice cocoa roast, a good amount of vanilla. (3305)
