Damico (2747) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours mostly unclear dark amber with a beige head. The aroma brings sweet vanilla beans, very prevalent and enjoyed on my sweet tooth, and some earthy malts and just a tad of smoke. The flavor brings sweet vanilla, light roastiness and smokiness pleasant on the tongue. The vody is definitely lighter but right on for the style.

AWISLguy (1528) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours a very dark brown with a very fine tannish head. Nice lacing. Aroma has coffee, fudge, sweet vanilla with a malt presence. Taste is of roasted malts, sweet chocolate and vanilla with some smoke. The vanilla comes through stronger further down in the glass, as does the smoke. Finishes sweetly with some roasting and some length. Very tasty. Somewhat dessert-ish, but not overly so.

ben4321 (4330) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow, 9/14/12

Aroma: The nose is rather sweet, lots of vanilla, chocolate, and some underlying roasted coffee
Appearance: It pours a medium-dark brown color with a beige head and medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The smoke and roast come out more to balance out the sweetness of the vanilla and chocolate
Palate: This one has a rather creamy feel, a light-medium body, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This was not what I was expecting at all. A lot of the roast and smoke is gone compared to the other versions, and there is a ton of sweetness from the vanilla. It still works pretty well, but it’s just completely different then I thought it would be.

bottle, from Triangle Wine. Good aroma, smoke, sweet. big meaty smokey with nice whisps of vanilla, Clean dark orangy brown, good head, that faded to a ring, spotty lace. Sweet flavor. Mediun body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet smokey finish. Pretty good, like the play with smoke and vanilla. flavor warmed up nicely.

omega (751) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 13, 2012
Vanilla not so much on the nose, but once you take a sip you can’t deny it. Not sure if the freshness of the vanilla works with the heaviness of the porter , but I still liked this beer.
