16 oz can at Nationwide Arena. Atwater Vanilla Java Porter is a deep brown brew with a mocha head. Nose is medium coffee with strong vanilla hints. Taste is a lightly sweet and mostly vanilla coffee experience. Body has a bit of silkiness with medium body. a decent vanilla coffee beer. A bit one note, but it does that one note well.

Draught at The Craft Brasserie. Not so sure what all the hate is about, this one may be a tad gimmicky but for the abv it is tasty enough, vanilla and coffee flavors stand out with a fairly smooth and soft mouthfeel. Decent. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Smells like a candle, tastes like one too. Fakey flavors in this one. Will pass next time.

This beer starts off looking and smelling great. The color is dark and robust. You definitely smell the coffee aromas also. First taste is a great chocolate malt and then it has a very (almost too) smooth finish. Overall this is a very good beer

Draft. Pours brown thin lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and vanilla. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, light bitter finish, sticky texture. jbruner (5277) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with thin ring of tan head. Aroma and taste of good vanilla and coffee notes. Thinner mouth, but solid beer, better than the ratings here. burg326 (5606) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Poured a deep black color with aromas of light roast, coffee, and some vanilla. Flavors are light chocolate, and coffee with some roast with lots of vanilla, decent overall. snoot8726 (110) - Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle. Thin black pour. Vanilla over powers the coffee aroma and taste. Good flavor just too much vanilla. Should have aged the beer on vanilla beans instead of using extract. Far too strong flavor with the extract. Not bad but could definitely be better. RobertDale (6848) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2015
On tap. Comes dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of vanilla and coffee. Taste is vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. As others have noted, it is thin and artificial. Still drinkable.
