3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz - Night of the Titans 2013) Found a bottle in the fridge near the end of the night so I tried it. Brown pour with a light puffy head. Sweet vanilla and roasted malt aroma, almost like a roasty milkshake. Flavor has some of that mildly fake vanilla extract flavor mixing with some light and watered down coffee with some cocoa stirred in. Not bad but nothing special either. Decent porter.

12 oz. bottle. You canít get mad at your family when they try to please you for the holiday with beers. They donít know. Pours a cola brown with a fizzy tan head. Aroma of mild coco puffs and vanilla candle. Flavor is quite sweet mostly focusing on oddly artificial tasting vanilla with hint of bitterness from the dark malt. Mouthfeel is quite watery, somewhat fizzy carbonation. How far weíve come as beer consumers . . .

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is of some roasted malt, maybe some vanilla and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is about the same. Decent roasted malt to start then a trace of vanilla. Finish is bitter malt with some caramel. Really needs more of the vanilla.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep cola like color with a small, tan head. The nose smells like musty vegetables, fake vanilla, and rotting wood. The flavor, thankfully, is much better. Heavy vanilla with milk chocolate and a touch of lingering off vegetal notes. Medium to full body. There are certainly worse beers, but this one has itís fair share of rough edges.

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 didnít suspect. Faint bit of vanilla underneath. Not what I expected...

Pours a barely translucent chocolate brown with a nice light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is mainly caramel and vanilla, rather sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and not too fizzy. OK if not outstanding.

Pours deep brown with red backlights.....short, whipped, tan head.
Scent is malt, vanilla..a little nutty.

A little bit thin, but a very nice, sweet flavour....a nice dessert beer...and a bargain for the price.
