Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12oz. Pours a deep brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is filled with fresh vanilla beans and the wafs of smokiness the base beer brings. Taste is much sweeter that original with still being upfront smoky. The two meld well with one another. There is some semisweet chocolate in there too. Very nice.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #397. Clear, but thick, dark brown color with a big brown head. Nice aroma, light vanilla and a little roast. Nice melding if flavors, roast, smoke and vanilla all coming through with a mild aftertaste. (2502)

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
355 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beigeish head. Aroma of strong vanilla sugar and some roastiness. Flavour is really smooth with roasted malts, vanilla sugar (and loads of it), grass and some bready notes. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and a smooth, roasty, vanilla finish. I honestly think they have not used vanilla beans here, but vanilla sugar instead. Or at least it tastes like it, and it’s the only thing that separates this from the original one. Sweet and smooth nonetheless.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
35,5 cl bottle @ lusikka, EB 20.09.2012
Vertical With Smoked Porter, this one was better
Aroma is rather strong on vanillin sugar and perhaps some distant cocoa notes. Flavour has vanillin sugar, some smoke and cocoa. The vanilla notes get stronger towards to the finish and linger rather long in the aftertaste. A real vanilla overdose – but I like it.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
355 ml bottle.
Pours deep dark ruby red, almost black color with small head. Aroma of vanilla, sugar, toasted malts, mild smoke, some baking powder and toffee notes. Flavor of vanilla, sugar, some toasted malts, mild hops, chocolate, cocoa and mild caramel. Smooth creamy palate, dry finish.

tiong (5407) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
355ml bottle

Enjoy by 09.20.12, vertical with regular one - Pours dark brown, almost black with a small foamy head. Aroma of vanillin sugar, some roastiness, hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasty and sweetish with a lot of vanillin sugary notes, hints of vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Finish is roasty and slightly sweetish with vanilla notes. Nice, quite tasty but the vanillin sugary notes dominate slightly too much.

umich03jm (2994) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours a near pitch black color with a perfect 1 cm head that lingers a bit. Lots of webbing on the glass. Aroma is lots of smoke, roasted malt and vanilla. The taste blends the smoke very nicely with the vanilla. Very slight bitterness near the finish. Hops are very subtle. Overall, a very solid porter.

Ontbeertaster (2361) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle, pours a thin black, aroma is a bit smoky and sweet, taste is very vanillia like a nice mouth feel, full bodied and a nice finish, mild on the smoky side, not like the regular smoke porter, overall really solid beer

omhper (21894) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2012
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Transparently black, small head. Aroma of only vanilla. Dryish with slender body and clean mouthfeel. Vanilla overpowers everything else. Some salty resiny bitterness. Why ruin a perfectly good beer like this?
