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.

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

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.

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.

Reviewed 12/15/2012. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark red color. This one definitely isnít perfectly opaque by any means. The head is a one finger light mocha shade that fades quickly to a thin collar around the ring of the glass. Lacing is minimal. S: Unimpressive. Slight vanilla-esque cream soda notes and a bit of hazelnut...and thatís it. T: Again, tons of vanilla and cream soda seem to dominate (inasmuch as itís the strongest flavor note), while the only hint of this being a dark beer is slight hazelnut on the back end. I can tell after the first sip the sweetness will really wear on me hard. But the worst part? The sweetness gradually shifts into a chemical sensation thatís kind of unpleasant. M: This features honest-to-God sugar burn, caused by the huge lingering sweetness and syrupy finish. Even worse is the intense carbonation, which creates an even harsher mouthfeel. O: Even as a dessert beer, Iíd call this one a mild failure. As a porter, itís more or less a total failure. The only thing it really has going for it is drinkability - if only to get the chemical aftertaste off of the palate as soon as possible. No regrets getting a single bottle (a tick is a tick, damnit), but I donít need to ever have this again.

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and vanilla. Tastes of roasted malts, slight coffee, faint chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation, very good porter.

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.
