I was surprised to find this to be a really good beer. It tastes just as good as the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter. I will have another

Bricks (594) - Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dark beer with a slight amber hue. Aroma is neutral, somewhat metallic. Mouthfeel is very smooth, just a hint of bitter fizzy. Tastes like molasses, malty, and vanilla. Good beer.

DANEgerous (90) - Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Aroma: Smoke and spruce fairly faint. Appearance: Dark brown blood red tinges in light light tan head. Taste: Highly smokey almost like a good cigar notes of coffee and chocolate yet oddly almost no Vanilla. Palate: Thick less than average carbonation. Overall: while far above compliant it is just not very "Vanilla Porter" I got this expecting sweetness with some hops a nice finish to a meal and i did not get anything of the sort. perhaps I was to harsh as I have has a few Vanilla Porters and this one is just while by no means bad not even merely average, It is damn good it just feels more "Smoked black Porter" than "Vanilla Porter" kind and that is of like getting Death Metal when you wanted Smooth Jazz.

A pretty straightforward porter with vanilla character. A bit thin, but definitely has drinkibility.

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours a barely translucent chocolate brown with a nice light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is mainly caramel and vanilla, rather sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and not too fizzy. OK if not outstanding.

RobertDale (3455) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. Finish is dry. Kind of thin for a porter. Easy enough to drink.

bkurtz (787) - PERU - JAN 16, 2014
Pours brown with ruby highlights and a creamy head. Vanilla is very present, tastes artificial and overpowering. Thin for a porter. Not good.

My rating might lower if I had more than one. It's a very good beer, but its sweetness could get a little cloying after one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (2090) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pour a thin clear dark brown color with a small fast fading foamy khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark cocoa, ash, but not getting any vanilla in the aroma. Taste of burnt coffee, bitter dark chocolate, ash, and a hint of vanilla extract in the aftertaste.

Nice tasty Porter. Pour is black with no head. Delicious flavor of light roasted malt.
