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 (464) - 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 (1823) - 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 (1938) - 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 (239) - 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.

440 mL Draught can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a translucent very dark amberish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells good too; creamy milk chocolate. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as rich, with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A touch of roast as well. Good beer.

Pours dark auburn with a creamy wonderful head. Aroma of molasses, vanilla, roasted malts. Taste is much the same. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Masterkush7 (559) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sulawang (632) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
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.
