Cybercat (5170) - Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a deep, warm, opaque sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Smoky aroma has a firm overtone of semi-sweet chocolate and more than a hint of vanilla, plus hints of caramel and quality coffee. Flavor - oo la la, like drinking a Hershey bar with Irish coffee! Strongly chocolaty, plus coffee, roast malt, caramel, vanilla, hints of licorice and woody hops. Absolutely lip-smacking. Firm texture has plenty of fizz and life. Where does a vanilla gorilla drink beer? Anywhere he (or she) wants to! :D

Nice deep dark almost jet black body. Espresso, chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma, with some essence of hops. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.

kingaugusta (241) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Pours dark red-brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee with just a pinch of vanilla. Flavor is rich on chocolate and vanilla but quickly thins to a watery coffee finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

12 oz from Total Wine (North Hills). Pours black with a small white head. Aroma is vanilla, some chocolate as well. Taste is huge vanilla up front with a strong coffee finish. Body is average, slightly thinner than I like in the style. Overall one of Red Brick’s best. A very good porter with nice flavors.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Cellared 12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of Oct. 2013, Pours dark brown but looks black and opaque in the glass. A medim size tan head is quite creamy and has very good retention. Aroma: very well balanced and pleasant blend of vanilla beans, dark bread, and light alcohol esters with hints of coffee and dark fruits. Flavor: a generous amount of vanilla with a very natural flavor. Not so much vanilla as to mask the dark roasted grains nor some alcohol esters. Both the alcohol and the vanilla fade in the aftertaste leaving a gentle impression of dark, vanilla iced bread. O: very enjoyable and definitely preferred over the smoked version.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Black, with a thick tan head. Smells like burnt toast and vanilla and coffee. Taste is Bailey’s in coffee, plus some red wine and dark chocolate. Some pine in the finish.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Nitro… This beer rocks!… Pours clear and copper with a mid-sized, fluffy, khaki head. Great retention. The nose consists of nutty, roasty, chocolaty and vanilla notes with an undercurrent of espresso. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is loaded with espresso, roastiness, vanilla and chocolate notes. All are balanced nicely by a calculated measure of hop bitterness. Roasted, mocha finish with a sweet kiss of vanilla that lingers. Decadent world-class beer with a lot going on!
