DSG (7488) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Clear dark brown with a beige head. Great aroma with lots of chocolate and vanilla. Sweetish flavor with chocolate, coffee notes, a bit of vanilla and a dry finish with a bit of bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice.

A disgusting beer, a bad mix, don’t know what the guys (and gals) at Stone were thinking, is a vanil barf bomb.

rodenbach99 (3397) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Un bomber acheté dans le Maine. Une robe brune foncée avec une mousse beige. Un nez plus fumé que vanillé. Une bouche agréable, ronde avec une touche de fumée et une finale iodé avec des notes de vanille. Agréable sans plus.

GnarlyGnome (713) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle: wasn’t as big of a fan of this as I was hoping I would be. I think it needed a bit more roastiness to balance out the sweet vanilla to me. Just didn’t sit right on my palate.

airrick2003 (609) - Louisiana, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Appearance: very dark maroon color, can see that it’s clear when held up to the light, pours with a large tan head that settles into a nice density Aroma: coffee, dark roasted malt, Taste: coffee, has a vanilla warmth and sweetness beneath the coffee, bitter finish, Palate: soft carbonation, heavy mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste Overall: a good porter and I like the vanilla, could use a stronger vanilla sweetness but I guess this isn’t a stout, simple and straightforward, very drinkable

Ughsmash (7253) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a short-lived tan head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet cocoa, smoked malts, and a hefty dose of vanilla bean.. excellent. The flavor found similar, with a bigger dose of vanilla.. dry and smokier on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with low-ish carbonation.. good feel.. great stuff!

Dark in color with almost no head. Aroma is coffee, vanilla and some chocolate. Taste is predominantly coffe with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. A good porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
