snavelz (3) - Aliso Viejo, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012 does not count
It has a great smoky quality, with just the right amount of vanilla bean notes, without being too sweet or too overbearing in flavor. You could tast the vanilla on your lips after drinking it.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Chocolate and a very faint vanillia aroma. A deep brown color with a light brown head. A nice smoked flavor the chocolateis not overpowering and the vanilla is in the aftertaste. The brew is pretty light bodied for a porter and crisp. Overall a good brew worth a buy

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Aroma is light but nice. smoke and vanilla. taste is ok. the vanilla seems very artificial. the smoke is well done however. carbonation is soft. seems a bit thin. would not get this again but was ok to try.

Quite a bit of vanilla. Decent flavor and mediocre pour. Drinkable but not the end all be all of vanilla porters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mbgrayson (726) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours dark dark brown, with a light tan head. Aroma of malt and vanilla. Taste slightly of smoke, more heavily of vanilla. Nice palate, fairly smooth and drinkable. Thumbs up for sure.

mmmbeer (1392) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2012
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a solid nontransparent black color when held up to the desk light, white ring for a head, aroma of geniune vanilla, light smoke, and malt. Hits the mouth with a firm and wide body, malt was burnt to hell but it loved every minute of it, middle has smoke come in, finish has only a tiny amount of vanilla. It was worth the wait.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($3.50): Pours dark brown with a cascading creamy head. Aroma is smoky vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is really vanilla heavy. Smokiness is in the undertone. Nice roasted malt tastes. Well-balanced. One of the better vanilla infused beer I have had.

Jow (3519) - New York, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Tap at the stagshead. pours jet black with light reddish head. nose of vanilla bean. tastes mostly of vanilla, light smokiness, earth, coffee, dark chocolate. very round palate and a touch too sweet for huge portions but very pleasant in small doses

I bought this despite what I thought was a poor showing by chipotle version - nose has a lot of vanilla extract character and not much else - maybe a little smoke and/or char - medium body - the texture is fairly nice - creamy, with medium carbonation - flavor is simple - equal parts sweet vanilla and strong char, followed by a moderate bitterness, none of which comes together all that well - I like the chipotle better - sigh.
