On tap at Six Row on Jan 11th. Pours a black color with tan head. Vanilla, syrup, chocolate flavors. Thick, syrupy beer.

Bomber thanks to Secret Santa. Thanks! Dark brown with a very assertive large tan head. Uh oh. Aroma of roast, dark fruits, chocolate. The taste is dark fruits, chocolate, bandaid, mild vanilla. Thin bodied, chalky, high carbonation. This is infected and the flavor seems to be stripped out. Sad.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle shared at Guinn’s house. Pours brown, but bottle was so profoundly over-carbonated that it took a few minutes to see the color. It was all off white foam. Flavors are good - chocolate, vanilla is noticeable, some metallic notes as well. Roast barley is present. Decent, but not great beer.

kaser (4179) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Black pour. Super sweet. Vanilla and creamy. White head. A lot of great tastes going on here. Great beer. Had this on draft at six row brewery as part of a flight.

Pours an opaque mahogany with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Has a hint of dark fruits. Decent porter.

22oz bomber thanks to strykzone via local swap 5.2. Pours a dark brown color with a small frothy tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, vanilla, and slight funk. Taste of roasted and caramel malt, ash, a hint of vanilla, and a weird sourness.

sharkbcr (129) - Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Black color, no head. Malty aroma. Taste is malty with a slightly sweet finish with no hint of vanilla. Clean crisp finish. A slightly above average porter.

genesee (7) - Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2014 does not count
On tap. A very dark color with a thin beige head. Hardly any vanilla detected in the aroma. An initial taste of vegetables and a hint of dental numbing gel, but not in a bad way. Vanilla flavor disappears entirely after the first few sips. An OK porter with a slight bitter aftertaste. Would not drink again.

Strykzone (5618) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bomber. Black pour that has a bit of red. An uneven beige head. I smell light roasted notes with beans. Vanilla is tasted along with earth. Some hops add a bit of tartness and bitterness. A bit of coffee. Mid glass some persistent sourness pops up. This has a thin feel. The flavor is on the thin side, too. The finish is chocolate vegetables. Not a favorite.

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of vanilla, cream and mild carbonation. The taste was of vanilla beans, and a smooth roasty maltiness. Not bad, just not for me.
