Butters (3766) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Dark clear brown pour with mahogany highlights and ring of dark khaki head. Nose is a little twinge of tootsie roll, but not horribly so. Flavor is a bit more complex with caramel and hints of vanilla muddled between the roasty cocoa. Moderately carbonated gives a slight prickle to the tongue which prevents it from being overly sweet or syrupy. One of the better leinenkugels i’ve had.

Black with a decent beige head. Aroma is quite toasty with some vanilla, cocoa. Taste is of vanilla, light roastiness, and chocolate.

nearbeer (3735) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 oz. Deep chocolate color with a lasting film of sticky cream on top. Nose is light berry, a touch of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is a bolder version of the same pleasant mix, with the vanilla taking the lead and a touch of ash on the finish. Medium body is to the sweet side, but not sticky and really rather drinkable.

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

Patrickctenchi (3674) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours deep brown with red backlights.....short, whipped, tan head. Scent is malt, vanilla..a little nutty. Taste is chocolate and vanilla....creamy. A little bit thin, but a very nice, sweet flavour....a nice dessert beer...and a bargain for the price.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
I didn’t fimd anything especially wrong with this, except that it wasn’t very good. The palate--acceptable for a porter. The flavor--not the most elegant vanilla or porter. The aroma--rather dull. But then, this is a brewery that is aiming for a different of the craft beer market than where I am at. Bottle.

maxwelldeux (3668) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Faint smell of sweet vanilla in the nose of this. Taste has some strong roasting to it, which I didn’t suspect. Faint bit of vanilla underneath. Not what I expected...

kidmartinek (3658) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Black with no head, foam, or lace. Light consistency. Vanilla bean and roasted malt aroma. The bote is strong. The flavor is pretty much all vanilla with light toasty malt and chocolate undertones. Damn fine at Dogwoods after doggin’ around the park and city all day!
