Pours an amber brown with a tan head and aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is sweet, of roasted malt with light chocolate and vanilla notes with a sweet, malty finish.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014
Thanks to José Pérez. Dark brown color, almost black with a minimal and quickly diminishig off-white head. Aroma has notes of licorice, some coffee, and light roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning, roasted notes with licorice and coffee beans notes, some ashes in the final with a light bitterness.

Pours a dark cola color. Aromas are faint vanilla and chocolate. Vanilla up front. Some chocolate. Thin and pretty average Porter.

SODAK14 (281) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Nice, really smooth beer. Pours a dark color, taste faintly of chocolate. I think this would be a real good intro beer for some who hasn’t tried/doesn’t like dark brews. Easy to drink!

gopherfan99 (457) - CROATIA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle, pours dark brown with a tan head, slightly bitter chocolate flavor with some coffee and a hint of vanilla, a little thin but better than I expected

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Average with some flaws. Aroma was very malty with tiny bits of roasted character and vanilla. Typically dark brown color with a sustainable head. Palate was full but left a malty puckering feel that was not all that pleasant, which was not from souring, just imbalance. Flavors were roasted and vanilla with a little nuttiness. The hops presence was minimal with the maltiness being somewhat dominating. Not worth a return visit.

burg326 (3670) - Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Poured a brown color with aromas of light vanilla, some roast and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, thin mouth feel.

OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Smelled like a vanilla cola or some sort. Thin, fizzy vanilla and cola flavor. Really filling. I like some of their stuff but this isn’t one of them.

Very nice and refreshing one. With some smooth sweet looks and creamy thin in the shape.

This beer had the promise of being something really special. A great style by an imaginative brewery. Unfortunately, it was saccharine and thin, with more sugar and fake vanilla flavor than the notes that make porters great.
