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

Cybercat (3476) - 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 (3698) - 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 (866) - 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 (2235) - 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.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Only a mild rep to what a Xmas porter should taste like. Mild malts with a bland finish. Slight bits of vanilla and wood are in a secondary taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Motobashi (74) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Light caramel with a slight floral scent. Alcohol smell present. Dark reddish brown, but clear pour with minimal head that disappeared quickly. A medium body, lightly bitter. Soft carbonation. I can’t taste the vanilla but overall a nice flavoured beer.

jkwood04 (4153) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
On tap in a shaker. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of light dark malts, light chocolate, vanilla, and dough. Flavor the same, like a watered down porter. Average texture. Not great.
