Light caramel with a slight floral scent. Alcohol smell present. Dark reddish brown, but clear pour with minimal head that disappeared quickly. A medium body, lightly bitter. Soft carbonation. I canít taste the vanilla but overall a nice flavoured beer.

Pours dark brown with red highlights. Aroma is roasted malts with some sour notes. Taste is typical porter up front that quickly fades to vanilla that quickly fades to nothing.

Big on flavor but still headache material. As with all their lagers they seemed to have a certain aspartain flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Poured clear, medium-deep brown with a reddish tint to it. The aroma picked up heavy vanilla bean paired with lightly-smoked black malt.. sweet overall. The flavor found sweet vanilla bean and roasty black malts at the core, with bitter coffee and smoky roast around.. higher, fairly sharp acidity at times.. finished with prickly carbonation amplifying sharp-ish roast. Light-medium bodied with sharp carbonation on the palate.. I was expecting a little smoother and creamier, but it was alright.

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice brown with a ruby red hue and a nice two inch tan head that fades quickly. Taste is roasted malt, caramel,chocolate coffee and vanilla. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit slick and a touch on the lighter side. Mostly clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good winter beer.

scottw86 (1090) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Poured a very dark brown with a hint of red. Small head. Roasted nutty aroma with caramel. Some vanilla. Taste has lots of vanilla with nuts and cream. Carbonation a little high. Maybe too much vanilla, it dominates the flavor. Finish has some nice caramel flavors with a touch of coffee. Overall not bad, but too much vanilla.

Bottle: Poured a blackish with reddish edges, the head was a cream off white. The aroma is light but a bit vanilla. Taste is a chocolate, vanilla, gritty mess.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Clear, reddish brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is nutty, sweet chocolate, light vanilla and toffee. Flavor is nutty, (think hazelnut syrup and pine nuts), dusty chocolate, light roast toffee and a medicinal bitterness to the finish that sort of wrecks the experience. Medium bodied, syrupy and has a moderate strength, but quite sharp carbonation. Decent.

nick76 (4184) - 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.
