Like a big Chocolate, Espresso infused Brownie, Roebling porter packs a lot a flavor from the use of fresh Organic Ugandan Vanilla beans, Organic Peruvian Espresso/Coffee, and Natural Raw Cane Sugar! 7.8% ABV 35 IBU, 31 SRM

Thick milk chocolate foamy head. Surprisingly light and ever so slightly sweet. Mild vanilla on top of palate . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours murky brown with a thin off-white head. Nose is lightly smoky, a little soured malt, and some popcorn (!). Taste is a little better--not much sourness or roastiness, a bit of cocoa, and some nuttiness. Pretty thin-bodied. Weird beer.

cbfobes (2334) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle shared by Greg, pours a dark brown with an off white head, the aroma has some vanilla coming through with some sweet malt, the flavor has just a little bit of coffee with some coffee in the finish, was kind of lacking through out the entire beer though, wanted more out of it.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with Veldrid, I believe. Thanks! Pours a dark brown appearance with a foamy, dark brown head. A touch fruity, very roasty, a bit nutty, mild coffee, vanilla aroma. A bit tart, somewhat acidic, a bit fruity, fairly thin bodied. Some coffee and vanilla but overall all that great.

CardiacNP (30) - Schriever, Louisiana, USA - APR 18, 2013
On draft from fox & hound in Ohio. A black porter with a small creamy "coke" colored head with minimal lacing. A deep chocolate and coffee aroma with a hint of vanilla. Taste was similar to aroma - chocolate up front with a long lasting slightly bitter coffee finish with mild vanilla undertones. Mouth feel was nice, smooth & lightly creamy. Very little alcohol taste or burn for a 7.6%ABV. I very good chocolate vanilla porter that I hope to drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the best beer on tap that I have ever had. I am looking for it in Nashville. They serve it at The Pharmacy and showcased at the East Nashville Beer Craft Beer Fest. If anyone has found it, would love to know where!

shadey (1909) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2013
Had this on tap at the East Nashville Beer Festival. Pours a reddish brown with a strong aroma of chocolate and vanilla that is very enticing. Mild roasty character and incredibly easy to drink. I was impressed with my first beer from Rivertown.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown to black with a two finger light tan head that fades into a ring pretty quick with a small amount of lacing that slides down into the beer almost immediately. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is big toasty malts and vanilla up front with the chocolate and coffee coming in big right behind them. Very well balanced. Finish is a bit too quick for me, but the bittering hops come through with a roasted malt aftertaste. Full body but not too heavy. Texture is sticky and a little thin. Carbonation is lively and active. Overall a great aroma and taste that is well balanced. Very well done!
