probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
440 ml can in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nitro/widget creamy, lightly ashen head. Aroma: Lots and lots of vanilla, milk chocolate, coconut, with a slightly vinous/tangy note, some deeper malt aromas of coffee and dark chocolate. Palate: Medium+ body and a nitro/widget smoothness/creaminess for carbonation. Flav.: Vanilla, cardboard, a touch of milk chocolate, falls flat compared to the nose (which isnít ideal); dry with light bitterness, a slight twang and a kinda vapid, wet cardboard, artificial vanilla ending.

The nose wrote cheques that the flavour couldnít cash. Odd.

Very strong vanilla and malt flavor. Sweet aroma and a sweet finish with a hint of allspice or cinnamon.

440mL can, pours a deep dark brown with an amber tinge and a huge beige head that lingers forever. Aroma brings out lots of vanilla, maybe a bit of cocoa too. Flavour is smooth, bringing out vanilla and subtle cocoa as well. Body is very smooth, like a nitrogenated beer. Simple beer, but very drinkable and quite enjoyable. Good.

On nitro tap, which works well. Loads of sweet vanilla, too much really. Light coffee, cream, sugar, cake and toast round out the flavors. Iím liking it more as I get used to the sweetness.

dreamflower (595) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
Shared with northropfrye. What can I say, Iím a sucker for a solid vanilla porter, and this one delivers. Poured with nitrogen foam for an intensely thick, pillowy head, much like a merengue. Super-delicious with strong vanilla flavour and aroma, but not overpowering. Gorgeous in appearance with such a thick mocha head and deep black liquid. Loved this.

Awesome aroma of sweet vanilla. Gorgeous head lasting black body. Taste is sweet with milk and a touch tart. Awesome palate. On nitro.

ljthiessen (506) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Can. Pours dark brown with a classic dense creamy head from the nitro. Chocolate and vanilla aromas, oatmeal and marshmallow notes, smells a bit like cookie dough. Flavour is light bodied, mostly chocolate with a touch of roastiness and vanilla. A bit thin and low carbonation. An improvement over Guinness for canned porters with nitro, and smells delicious, but not enough flavour and body to back it up.

cards04 (1843) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
A really great Porter. Maybe the next vanilla accented porter Iíve ever had. Pours a light brown with creamy Guinness like head. Aromas are beautiful vanilla and chocolate notes. Nice sweet vanilla flavors with a toasty malt finish. A touch watery.. But still good.

Gerbeer (1987) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
On tap. Pours a very dark black with moderate head. Light aromas of milk chocolate and vanilla. Flavors are the same but stronger with a touch of malts. Simple, smooth and easy to drink. Sweet milk chocolate with alcohol.

samzim (243) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Chocolate vanilla scent. Clear, nut-brown colour. Flavour of milk chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Pleasant, but a bit too sweet.
