Onslow (1256) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber brew, color of root beer. Clear. Off white head. Aroma of vanilla, ethanol, roasted malts. Taste is sweet malt, roaste dmalt, a little chocolate, some vanilla and maybe a little licorice. Nice profile of burnt and dark roasted malts, but a little too sweet. Vanilla is a little over done, IMO. But quafffable and fine on a cool December eve.

kathouse (1234) - Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Dark red with a thick khaki foam. Aroma is a combination of vanilla, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor has a considerable coffee presence and bitterness with just a hint of the vanilla in the finish. Kind of distracting for me.

jrodooo5 (1215) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Surprisingly tasty! Velvety smooth on the palate w/ very good chocolate aroma that draws you in. The pour is a average - dark brown w/ a thin tan head that leaves little lacing. The taste is dominated by the chocolate but it works & is quite a good beer!

AndyW68 (1209) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Clear deep red with off white head. Aroma of vanilla, banana and a little chocolate. First taste gave me malt, vanilla. Then "rootbeer" came to mind. The finish had a very little chocolate bitter, but left me with a stale taste at the end.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, floral hops. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Average off-white head. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall an average porter which is better than what I expected.

Dark opaque black, thin tan head; aroma a hint of chocolate; Flava the same plus dry roastiness notes of root beer sweetness; feels a tax light like soda; finishes dry and toasty

scottw86 (1142) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Poured a very dark brown with a hint of red. Small head. Roasted nutty aroma with caramel. Some vanilla. Taste has lots of vanilla with nuts and cream. Carbonation a little high. Maybe too much vanilla, it dominates the flavor. Finish has some nice caramel flavors with a touch of coffee. Overall not bad, but too much vanilla.

~Roasty coffee aroma with dark chocolate and light vanilla bready notes. Metallic notes as well. ~Pours black with rich garnet highlights and a lasting beige head. ~Vanilla is more prominent in the flavor. Creamy vanilla flavor with lots of roasty malt flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. ~Medium bodied, medium CO2, smooth feel. Bitter roast finish. ~Enjoyable beer. The roastiness could be lowered a bit. Nothing real special about this one.
