3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nearly black with a tight, fluffy off-white head, which lasts for a little while. A little lacing. Aroma is of vanilla bean, white chocolate and toasty notes. Taste is moderately sweet upfront with the vanilla making its presence known. Nice, rich creamy maltiness as well. Not a crazy amount of flavor but enough to keep you sipping. On the back end there is a little bitterness, with a dryer finish than i would have expected. Well balanced, with the vanilla making a nice touch.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Visual: Warning! This one is a gusher. Pours silky smooth light coffee brown with an ultry foamy decent sized nitrogenated head, a thick layer of retention, some lacing, just a few very slow streams.
Nose: vanilla chocolate caramel, quite delightful. (lvl-7)-pungency.
Attack: Nitrogen-flat mouthfeel
Mid-palate: almost tingly-crisp, (lvl-4)-sweetness, thin-mouthfeel, (MAIN) vanilla, coffee, malt, chocolate
Finish: light roast coffee, flat mouthfeel, caramel malt finish.
Summary: Decent flavour and aroma but still has that unacceptable flat mouthfeel. Better mouthfeel than the only other nitrogenated beer I had, Parallel 49 N2 Milk Stout.

Can. Let multiple people try my can of this and no one really liked it that much, including me. It smelt decent enough of vanilla and chocolate, but tasted too sweet. It tasted kind of milk chocolatey, but with an off putting vanilla syrup taste and feel. The aftertaste was just as unpleasant. Almost undrinkable as the can heats upl

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Poured from a Canadian tallboy. Did I detect a widget firing compressed air upon opening the can?
Very dark brown in appearance with dark cherry hilights. Slightly off white head, thick but not foamy.
Aromas of chocolate milk and vanilla.
Tastes of of sweet milk chocolate with vanilla hilights.
Overall, this is a very synthetic, unnatural tasting beer. Tastes a bit like my wife poured vanilla extract from a bottle into my beer, rather than it being naturally occurring. Wait, I think the list of ingredients, just confirmed that.... Vanilla extract, not vanilla bean on the list of ingredients? Disappointing.
Overall, this thing as conceived had potential, but it sure looks like....and tastes like, Mill St. Pulled a quick and dirty on brewing this one.

A very light beer despite its dark colour. The vanilla is a refreshing taste that suits the sweetness of the beer. Would pair well with a cream based dessert like crime brûlée.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned sample. Dark brown in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of pale malt. Flavors are of frosted chocolate breakfast cereal, more vanilla, and a touch of fruity yeast. Lighter bodied than expected, considering the apparent sweetness. Average.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Purchased at the NLC Liquor Store, in Marystown, Newfoundland, Canada.
Tried this beer after watching Albino Rhino’s review of it on his YouTube channel. Smell of vanilla, and espresso, with a hint of chocolate. Nice colour. Taste of mocha, vanilla, with a hint of raisin and a slight hint of plum. Not too tart, but not too sweet either. Very light bodied for a porter. Easy to drink. Will buy this again. I only wish they would use a floating nitrogen widget instead of one affixed at the bottom of the can.
