12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice brown with a ruby red hue and a nice two inch tan head that fades quickly. Taste is roasted malt, caramel,chocolate coffee and vanilla. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit slick and a touch on the lighter side. Mostly clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good winter beer.

Bottle. Pours dark. Not a bad porter but I think the vanilla is a bit overpowering. I like it, but only 6 or so ounces.

Aroma is rather barnyardish. Pours a brownish black with a none lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt followed by a vanilla blast. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Dickís Last resort, Chicago. Opaque, brownish black, with a thin head. The head manages a bit of light brown like a stout. Some vanilla definitely works into the nose, with a sweet malty backing. Surprisingly rich vanilla taste with a sweet chocolate malt, too, almost like a Yoo Hoo. A good rich seasonal that I would recommend just for its easy availability.

Had on tap. I really like the vanilla aromas and aftertaste. Feels like this should be a bit "darker" but itís still good. One of the better winter seasonals in the upper midwest area

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark brown with a thin tan head and spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma is sweet but nothing really stands out from it, the flavor has a sweet front end with I suppose is vanilla with a little bit of chocolate and roast in the finish, thin mouthfeel, not bad for what I consider a macro brew but nothing I would buy on a regular basis.

Finger of tan head, low retention. Dark brown body. Smells of vanilla and roasted malt. Initial light taste of sweetness, then chocolate and finally vanilla to end. Thin body, low carbonation. A fair porter. A fuller body would help and itís a bit sweet for my taste.

Simple flavor. Not very complex and not a very true porter. Its drinkable and offers decent flavor.

Enjoyed at Thanksgiving dinner with my family, straight from the bottle. I didnít take tasting notes for this one, but remember it being pretty decent. Iím typically not a big fan of the beers from this brewery, but this one was pretty smooth with decadent vanilla notes and light chocolate. Would definitely have this again.
