Smoked malts and vanilla aroma. Copper caramel body. Poor taste of fake smoke and vanilla, tastes like liquid favoring.

Poured a brown color with aromas of light vanilla, some roast and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, thin mouth feel.

OPIE788 (261) - Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Smelled like a vanilla cola or some sort. Thin, fizzy vanilla and cola flavor. Really filling. I like some of their stuff but this isnít one of them.

Very nice and refreshing one. With some smooth sweet looks and creamy thin in the shape.

Sidemount (1) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2014 does not count
This beer had the promise of being something really special. A great style by an imaginative brewery. Unfortunately, it was saccharine and thin, with more sugar and fake vanilla flavor than the notes that make porters great.

trapped (603) - TURKEY - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Reddish brown with light chocolate colored creamy head, caramel aroma, caramel taste with a hint of vanilla, medium carbonation, medium finish with slight bitterness at the end. A bit thin bodied but not bad.

solidfunk (3000) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Some vanilla and a light roast aroma. Pours light brown with ok head and lacing. Finishes a little bitter. Not super interesting. Average to fizzy carbonation. Tap at some bar I donít remember.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Can: Deep brown, dark ruby-red body with a khaki foam that sits nicely at a quarter-inch for some time. Aroma is sweet vanilla extract, lightly roasted & dark malt, a hint of chocolate... Residually sweet, thatís for sure. Taste confirms... lots of sweetness. Mild oak-y woodchip essence to it with lots of roasted malts. Vanilla isnít as heavy on the palate as the nose, but the sweetness is amped up. Sticky, slick residual brown sugars all around. Mild honey in the finish, dense coffee bean aftertaste with small vanilla notes. Mouth feel loses me, though... Too thin & sharply carbonated for a porter. What the hell? Fix the carbonation/body & attenuate the damn beer just a little more, & it would actually be a nice, super cheap, canned porter. As it stands... Merely okay.

beerbill (3267) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
On draught at the Hilton in Troy, NY. Arrived a very dark brown with a moderate, fairly creamy tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Mild aroma of malt along with a bit of roast. Surprisingly devoid of vanilla in the nose. The flavor is vanilla and some very lightly roasted malt followed by some chocolate. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly well rounded mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

If you love chocolate and vanilla, this one will delight your palate. Smooth taste for a porter, with mild vanilla aftertaste. Nice combination for a Porter, try it with light seafood like mussels ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (1201) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Slightly artificial vanilla in the nose and the taste. Dark brown pour. This is a porter best served cold. Itís not bad, but itís also not great. I prefer their creamy dark to this version.
