Not bad for leinenkugels, really appreciate the high alcohol percentage. A Lil lacking in the taste, gets better as it warms up imo

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Curley’s Pub: This one pours a fairly opaque, dark brown color. There was a small tan head that left a little lacing. The aroma isn’t bad. Definitely has vanilla on top, but it is not too strong. Also has notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste isn’t bad. Vanilla, espresso, chocolate are dominant. Not much else. Medium bodied. Just a touch sweet. Not a bad brew at all.

Bottle. Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma of dark roast and vanilla. Flavor of dark roast, malty with vanilla, light sweetness. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, I think this is a fun, tasty beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of moderate roast with some chocolate and caramel; the vanilla presence seems rather subdued. Appearance is black with light mocha head. Flavor up front is lightly roasty; the vanilla peeks in briefly thereafter, the finish is sweet, thin caramel. Palate is creamy, but at once thin bodied. Nothing offensive really, but also not a standout beer. By no means a bad beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 I am surprised this has the low ratings it has as of right now. Had this on draft and came dark with 1 finger of brown sugar head. Aroma was exactly what I thought it should be with a strong hit of vanilla and chocolate. It had a very strong but nice vanilla taste up front followed by sweet chocolate at the fnish. Mouthfeel was light to medium which I wanted as it is a porter with minimal carbonation. In my opinion, as it should with the style and name.

12 ounce. Thin sort of porter body with fairly strong vanilla taste. The vanilla, though, doesn’t blend blend well with rest of beer and leaves an artificial taste.
