joeneugs (4593) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 21, 2015
On tap at the brewery. It pours dark brown/black with a light tan head. The aroma has huge coffee notes and vanilla creamer. Pretty much what I expected, but it definitely delivers on the potency. Some drier roasted malts keep it honest. The flavor reminds me of an iced coffee with hints of vanilla, marshmallow and roasted malt. A little smoke in the finish. Delicious.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Black color with tan ring. Aroma is proper coffee, chocolate, some vanilla. Taste is very dry coffee chocolate, a bit dusty, some vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, feels light with still a full body. I love this one!

Draft at SARA. 100th percentile porter? Wait till I get a shot at you. Clear deep mahogany pour with thin ring of white head. No lacing. Aroma: sweetened Vietnamese coffee with vanilla and cream. No fucking way is this a porter. So I have a sip: maybe I’m mistaken ... Subdued like a porter, has the texture (thin and watery compared to the beverage the nose evokes, but also reasonable for a porter). Coffee (not at all harsh), sweetness is light to moderate (very much held in check), moderate but balanced bitterness. Texture is a bit chalky in spots; lively-ish carbonation. Lasting smooth coffee finish. Light caramel burps. Overall: I’d still have a hard time considering this a porter, but regardless it’s a pretty fucking tasty coffee-vanilla beer. Would take it over surly coffee variants in a heartbeat (not a knock against them - just trying to anchor this against other experiences).

jredmond (6670) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Draft at SARA with Linh. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is rich espresso, coffee bean, vanilla and earthy roast. Incredible nose! Mouthfeel is smooth, rich and creamy with notes of vanilla bean, earthy coffee roast, light chocolate and light malt. A tremendous porter.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Draft at the source. Pours a deep mahogany. Aroma is fruity espresso, bitter chocolate, brownie, caramel, light cherry, vanilla, oak. Taste is moderately sweet with baker’s chocolate, coffee, moderate bitterness, toasted marshmallow. Almond-like nuttiness. Reminds me of Hill Farmstead Earl with an addition of vanilla. Great.

PhillyCraft (4534) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
This beer is awesome. Drank at the brewpub. Pours black with small to medium head that fades to a ring. Aroma and taste are espresso, fudge, vanilla bean, coffee, perfect roast. This porter is fuller bodied, refreshing, and awesome.

AdamChandler (3920) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pitch black. Not much head to speak of. Loads of fresh coffee and cocoa beans. Almost cookie dough brownie sweetness on the nose. I get oatmeal as well. Take a big gulp of this. You’ll thank me. The mouthfeel is bright and full. Bitter raw espresso bean finish. A touch of vanilla but not overpowering. Figs and tree fruit. Coffee is pronounced and generous but not overwhelming.

On tap at SF beer week event in SJ. Aroma and flavor of vanilla porter, reminded me of Victory at Sea. Possibly less roasty than the former. Good beer.
