sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
650ml bottle. Enjoy by 03/25/14. Oops. Pours a deep ruby/black with a thin head. Aroma has nice notes of roasted malts, coffee, smoke, and burnt vanilla. Taste is bitter. Dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and just "burnt". Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth. Overall tasty but would probably be better fresh. Smoke, burnt vanilla, dark chocolate.

I’m not too sure about the hype for this one as even though it is the good stone smoked porter that I’m used to there is only a hint of the vanilla bean. For me that vanilla bean could be a lot stronger as it is juts there in the aroma and barely on the palate. There are a lot of other vanilla porters out there that are better such as one by breckinridge brewery. The beer is okay but probably not the best for this style.

Voodoo (475) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Poured a deep, dark brown with an over excessive light brown head which took some time to allow a sip.......aroma of soap and vanilla sugar......taste starts smooth with a light to medium mouthfeel of wet grain, coffee, smoke and finishing with light vanilla bitterness. Too thin to really enjoy.

reebtogi (5071) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate and light roasted grains with a hint of smoke. Taste is vanilla with a chocolate malt sweetness and a light roasted grain and hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. A quality crafted porter that will satisfy most.

dfearnley (1412) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle to pint glass Dark chocolate, coffee, lactose, loads of malt, and only a hint of vanilla. Dark amber brown with a creamy 1 cm tan head. Taste is chocolate and vanilla, grains, burnt coffee, late hoppy bitterness. This is medium and a little thin for a stout.

UXO (999) - CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours opaque deep brown with two fingers of loose ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is roasty malts, coffee and chocolate, mild vanilla, very slight smoke. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Full body, moderate to low carbonation, off dry finish. (4/5) Porters aren’t generally my favourites, but this one is quite good. The vanilla is quite restrained, manifesting only towards the end, as the bottle warms. The sweetness is also quite well-behaved, and the lingering bitter finish works well with the mild vanilla. (16/20)

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Yummy having Stone in Alberta. Favourites like IPA $4 off a 6-pack and new treats like this. Nice brown porter with strong malt and a noticeable smooth Mexican vanilla note running throughout. Very solid. Raosty and tasty.

ttutony (794) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Dark brown with a tan head. Light vanilla aroma. Restrained level of smoke flavor gives way to roasted malt bitterness. Again, more vanilla on the palate. Somewhat bitter finish, but not unpleasantly so. Nice, complex beer that has a lot going on but integrates well.

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Nice deep dark brown color, small head. Very light vanilla coffee nose. Espresso, vanilla, nutmeg taste. Very refreshing. Lingers long and has a bitter kick in the end! Nice
