One of my favorite porters. I didn't think I was going to like it but it was fantastic. The vanilla complements the roasted coffee flavor perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), trace hops (resin), with a strong note of vanilla, hint of smoke/ashes. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Rated in the same session as the regular and Chipotle versions. Slightly better than the regular version due to better flavor balance. The vanilla dominates the nose, almost completely hiding the hops and smoke. I like vanilla as much as anyone, but it’s just too one-dimensional in this case.

Plovmand (6603) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Ramy! Pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma is sweet vanilla, caramel, some roasted malt, toasted bread and chocolate. The flavour is sweet caramel and vanilla with light smoked notes and chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcos (1592) - Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on January 9th, 2012.

Appearance:Pours a dark black with a little bit of white head.
Aroma: Aroma mostly of vanilla.
Taste: Light bitterness, medium light roast, plenty of vanilla that isn’t too sweet.
Palate:Medium body.

Summary: I think this is a nice change of pace for the porter style, which usually includes chocolate.

vipinvelp (2362) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2013
Black with decent light brown head, lacing to glass. Aroma is burned malt with vanilla :). Taste is smooth slightly bitter vanilla. Aftertaste is turning more bitter over time, long present. (Houston 201301)

bleeng (1544) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours ink black with a small tan head. Nose is huge vanilla with a bit of roastiness. Taste is the same with lots of burnt malt flavors. A bit thinnish body. OK but not a world beater.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013
Draught at Aces & Ales, Las Vegas
Black color with creamy head. It has some aroma of roasted malt, light vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, roasted malt and chocolate flavor, with almost no vanilla. The bitterness level is correct.
Balanced; good.
