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

BillWyce (700) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured clear nut brown with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma of nutty malt with some vanilla behind it that quickly takes over. Body is medium, and a touch watery, with a mild astringent tingle in the finish. Flavor is nutty, maybe touches of leather and butter. The vanilla is underneath, and lingers in the back.

Dark brown pour. Coffee and burnt malt smell. Charcoal taste. Very rugged roast character. Ok

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of grain and malts combined with some hints of vanilla. Taste is a bit watery, of coffee and caramel notes, I donít get much vanilla; some bitterness to it. Nice drinkable beer, quite decent.

Simple flavor. Not very complex and not a very true porter. Its drinkable and offers decent flavor.

kdm1984 (633) - Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Vanilla aroma with some chocolate malt in the background. Taste follows suit, but mostly vanilla. Watery palate as usual with Leinenkugelís. Actually was a little better than I expected overall, though. Easy and pleasant enough to drink.

Bottle from PW pick a sixer. Pours a dark brown with white head. Has a sweet nose but actually has less vanilla than expected. Coffee and chocolate are up just hints and not dominant. Actually one of leinieís better beers...maybe they will be a little more experimental going forward....ha!
