pours dark brown with tan foam. Aroma of cocoa, milk, vanilla. Medium bodied. Flavor is lightly roasted, with notes of cocoa and vanilla, caramel. Better than I expected, not bad.

It poured a dark brown color with a cream colored head. The aroma was of roasted malts mixed with chocolate and vanilla. The taste was similar. The vanilla was definitely there, but not overwhelmingly, and it gave way to some pleasant roasted bitterness. A very good Vanilla Porter.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is filled with vanilla and green apple(acetaldehyde?), slight roasted malt character. The flavor is dominated by the vanilla. There is a creamy mouth feel. Overall this is thin and bland.

You can definitely taste the vanilla - it gives the beer more sweetness than most porters. Some carmel notes as well. Very dark brown, with a medium brown head.

Carol’s chili fest. Wasn’t expecting to like this, but actually had a lot of good flavor and could have had a few of these. I liked the sweetness in this, a good balance with the lightly roasted malt and the sweet vanilla flavor. Wasn’t too overbearing at all. Surprisingly good.

Bottle. Taste is vanilla extract, chocolate, hay and charred wood. Very decent winter brew!

On tap at Tanners in Kimberly. Pours dark brown with a cream colored head and great lacing. Looks luscious. Aroma has caramel. And caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some roast with hints of vanilla - a bit thin. Meh - ok.

Doesn’t smell great, but it is deliciously comforting. Love drinking this after a cold day outside.
