Pours a light brown, the guy below compared it to cola and he’s spot on. Nice egg shell looking head. Smell is smokey and vanilla with some roastiness. Taste is caramel, hint of roastiness and smoke. Vanilla really hits you on the finish like a thing of beauty. Great, easy drinking brew.

0,65 pullo@ Perkkaa UV. Suht öljyinen, kirkas tumma kastanjanruskea. Tuoksussa paahteista mallasta, hiukan savua, vaniljaa. Maussa paahteista mallasta, vaniljaa, humalaa. Vähän turhan kitkerä omaan makuun.

TheCaptMatey (169) - Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Poured a dark amber to brown colour with an off white head that left thin lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a mix of said malts and vanilla. Medium bodied brew starts off sweet and smooth, but ends with an assertive malt bitterness.

Beautiful dark brown poor with about an inch and a half to two inch frothy head. If you hold it to the light you can see hints of red. In the intial flavor I get the chocolate with the finish flavor coming in a little bitter and smokey coffee. This was an easy, smooth drink for me, had to consciencely slow down once or twice. This could easily become a strong session beer. http://wp.me/p5urG4-eY

patricks110 (1906) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Rich malty brew that pours out a burgundy hued brown with a thick, foamy tan head. The nose has vanilla up front with licorice and coffee notes blending with a light smoky, earthy note. A bit sweet in the mid palate with vanilla all over and nice notes of soft smoky malts and coffee beans. A good balance with the smoke. The finish is rich and a bit bitter with a nice lingering vanilla smoke note. Overall, a good brew.

Dark, but not super dark appearance. Aroma of vanilla, coffee, smoked porter. Smooth, somewhat bitter.

highibus (749) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Deep brown with ruby hues on the edge. Frothy off white head is lasting nicely. Aroma is quite muted. Some light smoke but not a lot there. Flavor comes with some vanilla and a light smokiness. The vanilla and smoke fight slightly for dominance but actually work well together. Nice beer.

Pours clear dark with red highlights and a decent foamy head. Nose is smoke, roast, a hint of coffee, some chocolate. Taste is very roasty, milk chocolate, vanilla bean on the finish, some bitterness on the finish, smoke. Very smooth. Interesting, I don't love the finish. There's a lot going on here, perhaps too much.
