scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice brown with a ruby red hue and a nice two inch tan head that fades quickly. Taste is roasted malt, caramel,chocolate coffee and vanilla. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit slick and a touch on the lighter side. Mostly clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good winter beer.

UncleKorm (815) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle poured brown-red hue w/ small tan fully diminishing head. Medium aroma of vanilla coffee w/ some caramel. Taste is light sweet w/ a strong vanilla extract flavor. Light bodied, lively carbonation and watery texture. Amped up vanilla to hide an inferior porter.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown. Not much nose. Very watered down, but I like the vanilla. Other than that not much going on here.

vikingguy (806) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours dark brown with quick diminshing brown head. Sweet caramel malt and vanilla on the nose. Mellow chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Pretty much what you’d expect. Soft mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Fairly creamy texture. Better than I expected because the vanilla, while fairly prominent is not as overpowering than other vanilla porters I’ve had. Porters don’t excite me and this in not exception but it’s definitely decent and one I’d drink occassionally in the winter months.

Lemke10 (794) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2013
This pours a very dark brown color with a slight head. Some there is a slight robust aroma mixed with sweet malts. The taste is decent but the volume and the vanilla flavor could use some work. It’s a little thinner than I imagined and the vanilla does stand out too much either. A fairly decent dark beer from Leine’s.

bkurtz (794) - 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.

dlbeer (793) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Tap. Nice tan head quickly diminishing leaving no lacing. Dark brown with a reddish tint in color. Smooth drinking, thinner beer but creamy taste. Light aftertaste but perfectly balanced. A dark beer that I could drink all night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (790) - New York City, 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.
