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.

Smells like vanilla, sweet vanilla. Pour dark red, tan head. Tastes sweet, lightly toasted malt, some vanilla, but less than expected given the nose. Body is light and fresh, moderately carbonated.
A decent brew, but too thin for my liking.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
15 ounce can into imperial pint glass, canned on 11/14/2014. Pours fairly clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with fantastic retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the whole glass. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, cream, light herbal/dark fruit, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a damn nice English porter style. All around great robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Very nice dark brown color with an extremely dense off-white head. Vanilla and milk aroma. The taste has too much vanilla and too little smoke for my taste.

This beer is my personal all-time favorite. Being a vanilla freak, when I saw this beer at the Mill Street Brewpub at Toronto Pearson International Airport, I had to try it. Ended up ordering two of them. Its scent is definately that of natural vanilla. Its taste just blew me away. Bold vanilla with a hint of cocoa and maybe a little sweet coffee. Too bad I can't find it anywhere in Quebec, It really would be my go to dessert beer. :-)
