Very dark pour that looks black until held up to the light the you see a ruby red. Lots and lots of head. I was actually yelled at by the brewer when I grabbed it, he thought I was going to take a sip and he yelled "LET IT CASCADE" Starts rich and sweet. Really dig this. It starts of rather rich and then it finishes wet and very beer like. Very well balanced.

This brown/ruby red porter pours with an effervescent head and provides a distinctive vanilla bouquet. It offers rich vanilla and coffee flavours and a smooth and creamy body. The lovely lingering after-taste makes you want to take another sip almost immediately. I can see myself drinking this five-per-cent porter all night.

[2660-20091214] Tap. Sweet vanilla extract syrup aroma with some chocolate roast milk malt notes. Clear, dark brown black body with a long-lasting creamy mocha head. Thick chocolate milk malt flavour is roasty with hints of vanilla. Medium-full body is smooth. Wow, really nicely balanced and creamy and toasty, it caught me on an I-love-porters day I think.

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

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!!

Bonne bière Ontarienne, agréablement surpris, trés mousseuse. Arôme delicate de café et chocolat noir mi-amer avec une bonne finale de Vanille.

On tap at the Brewpub. Wow, what a great beer (I love vanilla). Pours near black with lots of very fine head (is this nitro?) Big aroma and taste, alternating between vanilla and milky chocolate. Lots of roast malt in there. Liked it so much, I had another! Very drinkable, would be great with any dessert!

Can from University plaza LCBO. Pours a dark orange/red brown, khaki head with pearls of lacing. Smells completely like chocolate. Tastes sweet and light.

440ml can. Incredible tan marshmallow head which, I warn you, due to the nitrogen charge explodes out of the can. Every can's a mess. And every can's worth it!! Takes some time for it to calm down, but the milkshake body is a real treat. Aroma is subtle - cream, toffee, chocolate and unquestionably vanilla. Taste is sweet and malty but not cloyingly so. Again, unquestionably vanilla. Texture is thick and palate is wet. Very enjoyable beer.

I tried this beer on tap on February 10, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a dark blackish-brown, with clear edges, and creamy off-white head that lasted throughout. The aroma was roasted malt, vanilla, and some weak hops. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The flavour was sweet malt, roasted malt, and vanilla. Sweet, but not sickingly so. Very refreshing and drinkable.
