bottle - Dark brown pour, small tan head. It has a pleasant aroma dominated by the roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and vanilla notes. It’s medium bodied and overall a pretty good sweet, chocolatey brew.

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...

Patrickctenchi (3468) - 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.

Very deep mahogany colored beer when held against the light. Thin beige head. Nose of vanilla extract. Very big vanilla extract flavor with a little bit of the chemical/artificial taste that I get in some of the vanilla porters, it is not too intrusive. Some caramel sweetness, milk chocolate, and faint roasted grains, all of which are coated by the vanilla. As is warms there is some burnt caramel corn notes. Not a bad use of vanilla in beer.

Tap. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is light vanilla, roasted malts, light earthy notes, and plums. Flavor is dry malts, some vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, and light ash; thin throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

(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 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.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
On draught at the Hilton in Troy, NY. Arrived a very dark brown with a moderate, fairly creamy tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Mild aroma of malt along with a bit of roast. Surprisingly devoid of vanilla in the nose. The flavor is vanilla and some very lightly roasted malt followed by some chocolate. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly well rounded mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

12 oz. bottle. You can’t get mad at your family when they try to please you for the holiday with beers. They don’t 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 we’ve come as beer consumers . . .

16oz draft 12/18/12 (The Town)-Pours a dark brown/light black with a light tan head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and malt. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. A bit light but still good.
