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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 youíd 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 Iíve had. Porters donít excite me and this in not exception but itís definitely decent and one Iíd drink occassionally in the winter months.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. Itís a little thinner than I imagined and the vanilla does stand out too much either. A fairly decent dark beer from Leineís.

Alright, this dark brown beer with a heavy vanilla-esque flavors to add to itís chocolaely porter presence is good, although it is somewhat lacking in lasting body. Still, I liked it.
