Clear black with a thin foamy light beige head. Nose is a little toasty with a bit of caramel and dark cocoa roastiness. Flavor is lightly roasty with lots of caramel and a light touch of cocoa and a faint kiss of coffee. Mostly roasted earthy sweet caramel. Medium body with nice roasty dessert-y sweetness.

12oz bottle into shaker. Pours clear deep red-brown with a finger of tan head that quickly collapses leaving minimal lacing. Aroma limps in with vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, and a touch of cocoa. Flavors follow the nose with medium vanilla sweetness and a light hop bitterness cutting through the maltiness. Medium-light bodied, with a thin texture, average carbonation, and a bit of an astringent finish.

Bif (1456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a fair tan head that fades to spoty bits of lacing. Aroma is mostly vanilla, backed by some chocolate and maybe a bit of malt in the background. Taste of vanilla, some chocolate, bit of coffee and malt. Has a slight bitterness and afinish that is quite dry. Fairly medium body, smooth, silky texture. Nice offering for the style.

Dark color and silky head. However, not much in the way of aroma or flavor. I prefer a full-bodied porter but this is very light and bland.

On tap. Nice aroma and a nice looking beer. Dark in color with a fast vanishing head. Taste is vanilla with a touch of spice. Palate is a little weak. Really the only thing holding it back.

Nice sweet aroma. Smooth coffee flavors in the taste with vanilla and sweetness coming through. Tastes overly processed......wish Leinie wasn't bought out.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a transparent red-brown with a light, fine-grained cream head -- looks for all the world like root beer. Mild nose is vanilla, coffee, cocoa, smoke; what there is of it, that is. Light and sweet; mostly vanilla and mild coffee, with a touch of baking chocolate. Mouthfeel is very smooth despite the weakness of the body. It’s all right, but it doesn’t stand out from the crowd of mediocrity.

I like ths a bunch. Poured a thin dark brown, almost black with a small light tan head. Aromas of vanilla and chocolate sundae. Taste is milkshake like powdery and porter. Finishes with a marshmallow kick. Good.

Metalchopz (2296) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Purchased at Albertsons in Vegas. Looks like cola with its clean brown colour. The head is fizzy, but stops halfway to create a thick beige coat, but not much lace. The vanilla is super light in this one. Mild chocolate and fruity malts aromas. Wet, almost creamy mouthfeel, but not. Again, a little chocolate in the taste, with just a tad of vanilla in the aftertaste. Goes down well, but laking character. Especially vanilla.
