Bottle to glass at room temp. Dark brown with a small brown head. Chocolate aroma with a chocolate & vanilla taste. A bit thin and metallic finish.

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....

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pours very dark brown with very small tan head out if bottle. Aroma of cocoa and vanilla. Dark roasted flavor with hint of vanilla. Good beer but was hoping for more flavor.

Surprisingly tasty! Velvety smooth on the palate w/ very good chocolate aroma that draws you in. The pour is a average - dark brown w/ a thin tan head that leaves little lacing. The taste is dominated by the chocolate but it works & is quite a good beer!
