2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at Social this beer poured a very dark brown color with red highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and malty. The flavor was malty with molasses, vanilla extract, cookie dough and a hint of dark fruits. Long malty vanilla extract finish. Medium body but smooth. Ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Deep ruby, thin sudsy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft roasted nose, faint vanilla.   Toasted malts on the tongue, dusty/earthy vanilla follows.   Thankfully not as strong as others, but the vanilla does linger from start to finish, as I suppose it should.   Not as roasty as I would like for a porter.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Toasted malt finish, vanilla notes but not bright.   Not a big porter, malty nor hoppy, with a vanilla that does seem somewhat artificial.   Not bad I suppose, but nothing I would reach for again.

Bottle. Pours clear brown, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, toffee. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, obvious vanilla. Kind of like vanilla soda. Light body, soda like carb.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce. Thin sort of porter body with fairly strong vanilla taste. The vanilla, though, doesnít blend blend well with rest of beer and leaves an artificial taste.

Bottle: The aroma consists roasted nuts, light caramel, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes. The finish has light-moderate roasted nuts with a touch of coffee. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, considering itís from Leinenkugel, I expected it to be much sweeter. Itís not that sweet and the vanilla isnít over the top.

Bottle. Pours, looks and smells like a porter. Thereís a definite vanilla essence in the aroma, and an evenly tilted vanilla swirl in the flavor, too. Not bad. (#5339, 11/23/2013)

12 oz. bottle. Darker brown / almost black color. Aroma is pure vanilla extract and light chocolate notes. The body is thin even for Porter standards. Vanilla extract though the sip without much else backing it up. Light cocoa powder, carbonation needs to be tuned down, touch to fizzy. Drinkable not overly sweet but not much to it.
