crossovert (6352) - Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2012
A rich and tasty one, I like the original, this adds to it with almost a rootbeerish vanilla. Sooo smooth and tasty.

IndianaRed (2186) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2012
On Tap at the R&R Meridian, ID A clear deep chestnut with a lasting, dense creamy light tan head. Heavy clumps of lacing. Big milk chocolate and vanilla aroma. If this is infact the "Smoked" porter, the vanilla deadens that aspect a bit. Nice slightly smokey, flavor with big vanilla and some cocoa. A little bite at the end. Nicely done. Glad to have stumbled upon one of the "occasionally avaliable" kegs.

Cask at Daily Pint. Pours hazy brown with a medium, bubbly tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is vanilla, smoke and toast malt, chocolate and oak notes with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with smoke and vanilla, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

Anova167 (267) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAR 19, 2012
This is very dark brown with a nice thick tan head. Nose is almost all vanilla bean. Flavor is a very smooth blend of chocolate malts, vanilla, and light smokiness. Pretty short finish, but the vanilla sticks around. Tasty.

Peacehammer (600) - California, USA - MAR 7, 2012
On tap at public house. Thick black with a creamy off white head. Vanilla aroma mixed nicely with the regular stone smoked porter aroma. Lots of smokey malt flavors, with a good vanilla undertone that isn’t overwhelming at all but is present. Easily my favorite variation of this beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Tap at Hay Merchant.
Pours thick and black with a frothy white head. Nose is cigar ash, light chocolate, and subtle vanilla iced cream. Flavor is vanilla chunks in chocolate coffee. Thick like a slightly-warmed milkshake. Tasty brew.
