Very dark pour with a nice khaki head. Strong roasted aroma with hints of chocolate and smoke. Taste is dark chocolate, smoke, and subtle vanilla. Very good.

jstraw (1951) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Black with good, foamy, tan head / Sweet, almost cloying nose of vanilla, coffee, and dark fruit / Medium body, inky and cloyingly sweet, malty with only modest hopping, and sweet but bitter finish / Flavors of stale dark roast coffee and sweet vanilla, with notes of smoke and dark fruit / I am fan a Stone, but this is dreadful. Even without the vanilla, this would be a mediocre porter at best.

knewell (73) - Alabama, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a dark color and leaves a nice tan head. Has a nice aroma with a hint if vanilla. Taste notes of coffee, chocolate and vanilla that is smooth on your palate. Overall, a nice refreshing beer.

SPDickerman (1088) - Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours dark ruby mahogany with three fingers of light brown head. Smells of smoke, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is smoke with subtle hints of vanilla and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Beans finishes a little smoky.

mcberko (11172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a very dark brown / black with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Aroma of vanilla beans upfront, dominating the nose - nothing much else is detectable. Flavour of vanilla beans, coca cola, and some slight cocoa powder buried further underneath. Relatively high carbonation for the style, making it less smooth than optimally desirable. The vanilla beans are a very nice addition to the standard base beer. Solid stuff.

LilBeerDoctor (3581) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt. Lots of chocolate. Flavor is also packed with chocolate (milk chocolate in particular, but some dark chocolate notes too) and roasted/light charred malt notes. Smooth palate. This is super tasty and I love the chocolate notes! Reminds me somewhat of Dieu de Ciel Aphrodite (similar chocolate notes that is but less creamier). Great beer! 9/4/9/4/17 [4.3/5]

abcfan (867) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Good brew. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is full of smoke and vanilla. Taste is light smoke, medium bodied, and finishes dry with notes of vanilla.

bozizle (12) - USA - AUG 16, 2012
I don’t understand how so many people rated this so high. The porter base of the beer is not very good and does not marry with the vanilla all that well. I have to say this is the most disapointing Stone beer I have had to date.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is outstanding, notes of dark roasted grain, hints of dark chocolate, light smokiness with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is much the same but the aroma I feel is just better the flavor. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overall, very solid brew!
