Mild pecan nose. Clear ruby black, medium tan, good lace. Vanilla dominant, kibble underneath. Doughy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Mild residual sweetness that isn’t too off-putting. Good.

kaser (5548) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Poured from bottle. Good vanilla and chocolate smell and flavor. Not to over powering. Smooth. Somewhat rich. I surprisingly like this

EithCubes (5547) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle, ungainly screw-top. Faint nose of portery chocolate, pours light brown with a fizzy tan head. Taste sweet with medium vanilla and light chocolate, closer to cola, really. Fizzy medium body, faint bitterness, lightly sticky. Touch of unclean earthiness, mouthfeel a bit off-putting. Just dump a shot into your Pepsi next time. [2015.12.25: 2.4]

Skyview (5538) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear dark brown amber colored brew with a fast dissipating beige head that leaves behind a thin white ring and a film top, with minimal lacing. Aroma of vanilla, a hint of roasted chocolate malt, light coffee and white chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of roasted chocolate malt, plenty of vanilla bean, a hint of cinnamon and light coffee. Finish is semi-sweet, some smooth character with a slowly disappearing vanilla and light caramel aftertaste. The vanilla presence is touch overwhelming making more of an after dinner specialty porter than a meal beverage.

dmac (5466) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Park East. Poured a thinner super dark brown body with minimal head. Aroma started off with some celery and dry vanilla that leads to an artificial syrup along with green veggies. The body is thinner with subtle carbonation and a syrupy finish. Flavor is artificial vanilla, dark toast, green veggies. Blah and fake overall.

thornecb (5445) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours mahogany into a shaker. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Vanilla and roasted nut aromas. Medium bodied and dry with upfront vanilla turning to crisp nutmeat in the lasting earthy finish.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Dark brown in color, tan head. Nice aroma a tad light with the vanilla but the porter malts come through nicely. Nice flavor this was a good after dinner beer or a good pasta beer.

RobertDale (5328) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. Finish is dry. Kind of thin for a porter. Easy enough to drink.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. Nearly black colored body with a very thin light tan head. A leathery nose of cherries and vanilla. There is also coffee to complement with some roast. A thin and highly carbonated body has a slick smooth feeling in the mouth. This tastes of vanilla noted medium roast coffee. There is also some bit of milk chocolate. Actually, this is nicely done with some subtle vanilla. Better than expected.

Poured a brown color with aromas of light vanilla, some roast and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, thin mouth feel.
