jjuf1853 (1258) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle at Land O Lakes WOB. Pours a very dark brown with a touch of red along the edges. Virtually zero head to speak of with the exception of a tiny island in the middle. Aroma has a good bit of vanilla and roasted malt with a hint of funkiness similar to a mild sour. Flavor is quite nice with the roasted notes really coming through in the finish. The higher alcohol is well hidden.

This is a tasty brew. Alcohol taste and aroma are upfront and make this beer seem like more than 7.5abv. Chocolatety on the palate with a nice finish of vanilla and sweet fruity notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Labeled as Vanilla Espresso Imperial Porter Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Purple leaning to black pour, off white head, no lace. Creosote, licorice, and chocolate in the aroma.Flavor has some espresso accents, chocolate , licorice, biscotti biscuits and vanilla presence permeating throughout. Nice, thick, rich mouthfeel. Rather enjoyed this one. .
Earlier Rating: 6/23/2012 Total Score: 3.5
Thanks to drowland for this.Pours a deep dark brown fading to black, light off-white head. Aroma has some nice earthy black topsoil essence to it, with a touch of licorice. Flavor has some coffee, a hint of licorice, some earthy black dirt essence. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and chalky which is nice. Best of the bunch from Rivertown that drowland shared with me - but still has a touch of that butterscotch noted in their other beers - just mixes in well in this case. .

Very nice porter. Pours a deep dark brown. Light tan head. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste of the same. Complex flavors meld well together. Easy to drink. Very even taste. Not overly malty or hoppy. Will definetly drink again.
