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.

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

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
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.

Tessic (836) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
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.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
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.

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.

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!!

andrewturba (949) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
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.

exeter (246) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Opened the can and the can it sounded like a jet engine. Nitro kicked in and got it to the glass in time. Large head. Draught beers require some planning. Get them cold and pour, keep the head down. Let it sit for 25 minutes to warm up for best flavour. Open it too early and the head is all you get. I tasted Chocolate, vanilla, mild bitterness at the end. Creamy feel. Loved it
