Black coloured with a dark head. Aroma of malt, some fruits and vinilla with a coffee finish. Round and smooth. An incredible, thick and oily mouthfeel. Taste of malt, roasted coffee beans and vanilla in a soft and smooth taste, but still with a good coffee bitterness.

Bottle @ Benzai thx to Benzai. Black coloured beer with a nice ruby red glow shining through, medium sized beige head. Smells alcohol, red fruits, roasty, whisky and maybe even some oak. Tastes roast, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Full body, low to medium carbo. The last sip was the best.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a proper medium-brown head. Smell of roasted malt, coffee and cocoa. It also has hints of oak. Flavours found are roasted malt, coffee, oak and, of course, vanilla (hence the name). I detect a small hint of alcohol as well. At 10% ABV, this hardly comes as a surprise. Leaves a lingering sensation on the palate that reminds me of spicy peppers and chili fruits. Great porter this!
