ben4321 (4383) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 11/30/12

Aroma: The nose has some chocolate malts, roast, and a pretty good amount of vanilla
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown color with a small beige head and almost no lace
Flavor: The taste has even more vanilla then the nose, with the other malts moving into the background. It comes off rather sweet, with a little roast, chocolate, and just a hint (of hardly noticeable) bitterness.
Palate: It is medium bodied, though itís quite sweet, its not particularly sticky, but it does feel a little too fizzy
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty decent one. Considering that it is from Leiney, I wasnít expecting much, but it turned out alright. Itís a little too sweet and a little too fizzy for me, but it has some nice components. Decent stuff, not great, but it exceeded my expectations.

On tap in a shaker. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of light dark malts, light chocolate, vanilla, and dough. Flavor the same, like a watered down porter. Average texture. Not great.

unclemattie (4320) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Black color, thin tan head. Not much aromas. Basic Porter nose. Tastes of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, distant coffee/burnt grain character. Light and simple Porter with good flavors. A bit stronger than expected, makes for a nice and inexpensive winter ale.(3545)

Mild pecan nose. Clear ruby black, medium tan, good lace. Vanilla dominant, kibble underneath. Doughy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Mild residual sweetness that isnít too off-putting. Good.

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2012
The aroma is toasted and sweet with light but definite chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and adjunct malt. The appearance is red brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall easy to drink but nothing special, pretty much a macro.
