3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
440ml can from Mill St. winter sampler pack, Pours a dark brown with amber tinge, thick offwhite head that lasts the whole drink. Strong vanilla aroma with hints of toasted maltiness. Smooth and sweet with a hint of vanilla on the tongue throughout, strong vanilla kick in the finish. A little thinner than expected. Overall another enjoyable beer from a local brewery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark black with a big foamy white head. Roasted malts and cocoa. Dry bitterness in the finish. It's alright but less than what I was hoping for.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like a plastic Guinness Christmas tree ornament. Colour is sightly reddish off-black. Aroma is a bit sweet, vanilla but also a little roasty. The vanilla seems to be all locked in the foam and it does have some chocolate in the taste. Not very strong in either aspect. Feel is a little creamy but mostly thin. Not a great beer, but interesting

Lasting frothy creamy beige head atop a deep brown body. Roasty wooden nose. Pleasant and sweet cocoa bean, toasted malt. Very easy to drink. And enjoyable but sadly way too thin.

Really impressed by this beer. Pours dark chocolate brown on draught with beautiful tan head. Some sweetness for sure from the vanilla extract but not overbearing at all. Malty and some coffee as well. Nice mouthfeel and very drinkable (goes down so easy).
FYI, try putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a snifter top with caramel sauce and add this beer. Porter Float!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours fairly clear dark brown with a massive off white nitro creamy head leaving a lot of lace on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, toffee, grainy, vanilla, and overall rich sweetness/maltiness. Taste is roasted malts, vanilla, coffee + sweet cream like, cocoa, and a roasted dryness. Really easy to drink, may get sweet if I had 3 or 4 but this one is going down quick/easy.

Rating #780 - Nov 24, 2013 - 1 oz sample from Alix from Mill St. Nice deep dark color with a darker foamy tan head from the nitro can. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, vanilla bean seeds. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium alcohol warmth, low carbonation. Taste is complex, lots of toasted malt notes,hints of cocoa and fresh vanilla. Phenomenal brew.

This Porter pored a deep black colour with a big, beautiful, creamy, tan coloured head. Scents include vanilla, coffee, roasted malts and cocoa. First sip was velvety smooth with nice vanilla and cocoa flavours along with a little coffee and cream. Finish is lightly roasted with vanilla flavor lingering.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is actually a pretty good beer surprised from a Winter selection sample pack. Pours from 440ml can very frothy big foamy head, lots of lacing carbonation. Aroma coffee, chocolate, roasty, defintely vanilla, smooth on the palate, with a hoppy somewhat bitter finish, lingering coffee taste. Vanilla extract on can says is added to it, this is ok adds character, other additive flavors I have tried not so hot but this not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Noir sombre avec une mousse dense, moyenne et marron. L’arôme est dominé par la vanille. Le goût est pareille, peut-être un peu du chocolat, mais juste peut-être! Un très bonne bière du ’pub.’
