sudomorph (716) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 24, 2013
440ml can. Poursa glass full of a mocha/tan head that slowly forms into a three finger, creamy head with a clear, dark copper liquid. Head is persistent and doesn’t fade at all. Aroma is noticeable. Notes of vanilla, and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste is mildly bitter and balanced. Chocolate and vanilla on the finish. Medium body with a low carbonation. Pretty clean texture with a flat mouth feel. Overall pretty good. Solid aroma, taste, and texture. Though I did have to scoop out the unfading creamy head with a spoon to get to the beer. Other than that this is a solid brew. Would like to try it on draft instead of a draft can. Cheers!

440 ml can. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste of coffee and cherries. Palate is smooth and a light for a porter. Overall a nice offering.

Poured from the tap. Medium reddish brown with creamy beige head. Vanilla, cream, white chocolate, quite light overall.

440ml can into an English pint. Pours a jet black with a light mocha head. Nose is really quite unpleasant, perhaps a little too much licorice amid the vanilla and chocolate. Flavour-wise is full on milk chocolate with a bit of vanilla mixed in. Smooth and velvety on the palate, perhaps a little too sweet.

Can to nonic glass, the beer pours an inky black with a slight off white head. Aroma is strong vanilla, cream, licorice, spices, booze, cinnamon and other stuff...though a bit one dimensional. The taste carries roasted malt, coffee, vanilla...and is biased to the sweet side of things. The palate is just ok; I hate nitrogen in beer and would rather have this carbonated instead. In fact it obscures the taste of and makes it seem more watery than I like...plus it reminds me of guiness which is probably one of my most hated beers. Overall...this is just OK. Nothing horrible but could be better.

Definitely my favourite Mill Street product. The vanilla aroma and flavour are a perfect match for this style.

probstblueribbon (3072) - 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 isn’t ideal); dry with light bitterness, a slight twang and a kinda vapid, wet cardboard, artificial vanilla ending.

The nose wrote cheques that the flavour couldn’t cash. Odd.

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

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
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. I’m liking it more as I get used to the sweetness.

dreamflower (600) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
Shared with northropfrye. What can I say, I’m 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.
