stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinson’s, Inverness [150213]
Dark brown, clear, big frothy tan head that dissipates to thin layer, some lacing
Aroma - Lots of smooth vanilla, soft dark malts,some chocolate, dab of vanilla chocolate ice cream
Taste - The vanilla is very good here, not over powering or sickly, some dark chocolate, soft roasted malts in background. Not intensely flavoured though - the smoke is very faint tbh
Palate - Moderate carb, bit over fizzy, thin to medium body, fairly smooth. Palate is more sweet than bitter. Finish there is some more roast, but more meaty chocolate roast, nice soft bitter roast linger. ,
Overall - More mellow than I expected. The ’Enjoy By’ is dated sometime in 2012 so the flavours have probably faded a bit

HopsandBolts (210) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
1 pint bottle from Beverage Depot in Burlington Vermont.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with a finger of light tan head. Short retention, slight lacing.

Aroma: Dough, hint of coffee.

Flavours: Coco beans, vanilla, smoke, coffee, moca, raisins and prunes.

Mouthfeel: Average viscosity, lingering finish, average carbonation.

Overall: Nice Porter in which the vanilla and coffee beans really come out. The dark fruits like raisins and prunes come out as it begins to warm.

Bomber shared pours a medium brown with light Brown head. The aroma and flavor is lots of vanilla bean almost touch the ratio of smoke to vanilla bean is bean. I like more smoke this one leaves me wanting more

This stuff was really tasty. Oh, but it needs more alcohol in it. Still a delicious bit of drink.

Underwhelmed would be an understatement. Perhaps it’s a bit old? Standard porter looks. Aroma has mild vanilla and smoke....very mild. There’s almost zero of the deep roasted flavors a porter typically presents, with very, very mild vanilla and very mild smoke. Quite disappointing.

Tap @ Black Sheep, MPLS. Deep brown pour with a prominent tan head. Somewhat hazy. Toasted marshmallow and vanilla. Mellow smoked malts. Nice sweet/earthy profile. Taste is fairly rich. Generally sweet, some umami. Brown sugar, light smoke. Burnt caramel. Sort of oily. Pretty nice stuff.

Smells weird. Strange roasty scent with maybe some vanilla. I was expecting this to be gross since I’m not exactly Stone’s #1 fan, but this actually isn’t bad at all. Notes of mild roast and a creamy soft vanilla character. Extremely mild smoke thankfully. There is a bit of a minerally character in there though. Lighter body, medium carbonation, and some foam.

bennetporter (443) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours a deep dark brown with a slight off-white head from a bottle. Aroma of chocolate and caramel/toffee. Flavor of dark chocolate and smoked wood, a little thin in the mouth IMHO. Good beer.

Nice vanilla beer. Dark brown. A little sweet, but overall nice balance of vanilla, chocolate, and smoked malts. Nothing amazing, but very solid and drinkable.
