Pours dark brown with red highlights. Aroma is roasted malts with some sour notes. Taste is typical porter up front that quickly fades to vanilla that quickly fades to nothing.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a mahogany to deep ruby red body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up sweetness in the form of malts and vague vanilla as well as some earthy chocolate. The taste starts with malts and chocolate and then mild roasted malts and sweet malts. It gets a tad roastier to midway amid plenty of thin bodied sweetness.

Pours a dark reddish brown, with a figure sized head the the recedes quick. Lacing is poor. Aroma is mild but you can definitely smell the vanilla in it. Taste of mostly of vanilla but there is small notes of vanilla and cocoa in there as well. After taste is you guess it vanilla. While mouth feel is medium and itís carbonation is on the lower side. Overall simple but decent porter.

bennetporter (52) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours from a bottle a dark, nearly opaque reddish-brown. Caramel, oak, & vanilla dominate the aroma and flavor, but a little overly sweet. An okay porter.

This time of year, this is the type of beer I am looking for. I had it on tap and wish I could have had it with dessert instead of a steak, but it was still good. Smooth with a noticeable sweetness it is fairly roasty but not too interesting. This is about the only Leine I even consider buying.

Mild pecan nose. Clear ruby black, medium tan, good lace. Vanilla dominant, kibble underneath. Doughy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Mild residual sweetness that isnít too off-putting. Good.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger light brown head that does not last, dark brown to blood red color, good lacing, clear. Aroma: vanilla, roast, chocolate, very light coffee notes, citrus hops on exhale. Palate: full body, average carbonation, very bitter finish, oily carbonation. Taste: sweet caramel and vanilla with slight chocolate malt, into light citrus bitter finish, Overall, pretty drinkable, interesting hop choice for the style, but nothing amazing. Not bad at all either.
