Pailhead (5732) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2015
On tap (nitro): The aroma consists of moderate vanilla ice cream with light caramel and a hint of nuts. It’s a dark brown with some orange transparency when held to the light. It has a two finger creamy khaki head that settles to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. The finish has moderate vanilla cream, light caramel, and a hint of roasted nuts. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, toasty malts and vanilla. The flavor was sour caramel, vanilla, toasty malts, malted milk and marzipan. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Solid.

Bamsen78 (4445) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
Can from the brewpub in Ottawa. Pours darkish copper brown with stable light beige head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with some estery notes. Sweet flavour of fudge, with malty and estery touches. Very subtle hints of hops. Mild, sweetish and estery aftertaste. Very low carbonation. Well, something for a teddy bear, perhaps. I would rather have something else.

Smells like vanilla, sweet vanilla. Pour dark red, tan head. Tastes sweet, lightly toasted malt, some vanilla, but less than expected given the nose. Body is light and fresh, moderately carbonated. A decent brew, but too thin for my liking.

superspak (3489) - Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2015
15 ounce can into imperial pint glass, canned on 11/14/2014. Pours fairly clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with fantastic retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal/dark fruit, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a damn nice English porter style. All around great robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

From a can. Vanilla aroma with hints of smokiness. Classic dark porter appearance with a well retained off white head. Very strong vanilla flavour with roasted coffee undertones. Very creamy with a sweet fruity finish.very drinkable.
