Love this beer. I donít normally care for Porters, but this is excellent. Disappointed when it went out of season.

This is the beer of choice if you get snowed in. The slight hint of vanilla goes perfect with a winter fire.

Tap. Nice tan head quickly diminishing leaving no lacing. Dark brown with a reddish tint in color. Smooth drinking, thinner beer but creamy taste. Light aftertaste but perfectly balanced. A dark beer that I could drink all night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really good creamy vanilla porter that has the right ratio of vanilla and char. It has a great mouth feel that isnít too syrupy.

Inviting porter with just enough vanilla so as to not come across as too syrupy-sweet. A new personal fave for winter-time drinking! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Live this beer. Very tasty. Drinks like candy. Cocoa, vanilla smooth. Only wish it was higher alcohol. Near perfect.

Pours a black scarlet with a medium sized light brown head. Aroma is chocolate and malt. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is sweet and of vanilla, coffee, chocolate and malt. Very flavorful with a nice mild finish which is neither too bitter nor too sweet. A well done Porter that can be paired successfully with a variety of red meats or with nuts.

Holy goodness, I love this style of porter! Roasted coffee and vanilla aroma. Taste is similar, with the addition of vanilla and chocolate. Very dark with off-white head, some lacing. Very well done, and my favorite vanilla porter, perhaps with the exception of Atwater Blockís Vanilla Java Porter. Lots of breweries make attempts at this but most of their offerings just donít seem to nail it, in my opinion. Complex but easy-drinking and downright delicious.

12 oz bottle from a friend at work. You can really taste the layers of malt they used and the vanilla is just perfect. I really think the ratings are a bit low for this fine porter.

Brown, dark, and delicious. Leinenkugelís does the dark stuff the best. Itís complex, lots of flavor crystals. The vanilla comes through, but not overwhelming - it layers well on top of the traditional porter. Full-bodied, kind of heavy, but I think itís awesome.
