Not a huge fan, to many artificial vanilla notes which became a little soapy after drinking the full brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes like Stone Smoked Porter, with a subtle Vanilla flavor. Pretty standard. The regular smoked porter never really stuck out to me, this is no exception. Not bad, didn’t blow my mind.

22oz bottle. Brown pour with a red hue. Large, foamy off white head. Aroma is as advertised, primarily smoke with a hint of vanilla. Initial flavor is creamy, burnt vanilla while a semi-bitter coffee, smoke flavor really comes out in the finish. Average carbonation with a somewhat dry texture. The vanilla gets lost in the overpowering smokey flavor. Not bad but I expected a little better.

22oz bottle. clear brown with a frothy tan head. hints of milk chocolate and smoke with a wet vanilla bean in the aroma. the vanilla comes through in the flavor as unsweet, raw and fresh. layered on top of smoke and dark chocolate. a tasty take on an old classic.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Gross. Sweet. Artificial. Ugh.

22 oz bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Creamy coffee vanilla aroma with some roast and smoke. Flavor is roasty coffee,slightly smoky, pairing with silky cocoa and vanilla. It works pretty well.

Bule (687) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2014
22oz bottle pours a dark brown color without much head. Vanilla aroma. Intense vanilla flavor and lots of smokiness. A little overpowering.

sistinas (97) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours almost black with a small thick head. Smoke flavor considerably more mellow than the standard Smoked Porter. Very thick and a bit sweet, almost as if a scoop of vanilla ice cream had been melted in the normal porter. Little bit of bitterness at the end. Dry finish. Verges on being dessert beer.

TimE (3086) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2014
Light brown color. Sweet vanilla, nutty, chocolately nose. Very malt mouth with lots of vanilla and chocolate hazelnut fudge. A bit too sweet for my liking but not bad.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Sampled at 4 Hands. A lot of red in this beer. A smoky aroma is kind of meaty. The flavor is also big smoke with big malts. Not sure this works for me. Glad it was just a sample.

650ml brown bottle. Bottleshare at Ferris’. Deep brown, head is whitish and thin. Nose has roast malts, chocolate and vanilla. Lots of roasted malt in the taste, bitter malts and vanilla. Finishes with vanilla notes and medium bitterness. Medium bodied. Didn’t really enjoy it.
