kathouse (1525) - 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.

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

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a very nice creamy, dense, tan head. Aroma has a mild nutty nose, light chocolate, light vanilla with some bitter coffee notes at the end. Chocolate malt and vanilla really compliment each other in this brew. Light coffee notes come in late but add only a light bitterness and dryness to the brew at the finish. The malts worked pretty well in delivering a light caramel sweetness with a modest amount of toasted malt kick. Body is surprisingly thick with very fine carbonation to deliver the flavors and aromas. Overall a surprisingly good brew. Brew has the right amount of sweetness balanced with a solid toasted and light bitter malt note. Good winter brew.

P- Full body, thick texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. O- A strong tasting porter. The coffee tones take away from all the other tones that are in this beer.

Luvystypotables (1509) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
A faint malt aroma, pours a dark brown with a short lasting tan head. A watery feel with a slightly sweet vanilla malt taste. A sweet vanilla finish.

deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2013

Lingering amazing sweet but not overpowering end. T - toasted malts, espresso, vanilla, raw cacao, wet oak, carob, toasted coconut. O - sweet porter. Drinkable and mellow. 3.3

jrodooo5 (1434) - DOVER, 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!

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 21, 2013
The aroma of the beer is subtle, blending vanilla and roasted malts, and the appearance combines a reddish brown color with a medium light head that diminishes quickly. The taste is mildly sweet yet quite umami, which is a nice blend; furthermore, the palate’s fairly complementary due to the oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long yet muted extension of the flavor.

mmmbeer (1378) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent darkened maroon when held to the outdoor light source. One finger head disappeared as I lit up to a thin ring round the glass. Aroma of bourbon (how the hell did that get in there?), vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and a hint of maple wood waiting to be put in the fire. Hits the mouth with a medium body, very light considering the style, some vanilla from the start with coffee pairing it at the start, holds up well in the middle, finish does get a little watery. It’ll do for watching my Packers whoop some Cali ass- GO PACK GO!

AndyW68 (1370) - 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.
