llyons37 (23) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Microbrew of the month issue. Sweet smell of vanilla, strong taste of vanilla and sweet aftertaste. Small white head with a dark, medium to full body. Microbrew of the month club sent this to me. Its too sweet for my tastes.

smroush (227) - Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Color is a very dark brown with a small, light brown head. Taste is reasonably dry for a porter and has a slightly low bitterness for a porter. Body is on the thin side for a porter; alcohol is fairly light; carbonation is average; finish is medium to long with vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Overall not bad but the base porter is a bit thin/weak; still some interest with the vanilla, chocolate and coffee.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 Really yummy porter. The vanilla added smooths out this porter and makes it complex in flavor and simple in enjoyment. Really good beer. Actually on second taste on tap, its a little too spicy for my liking.

A decent sweet porter with notes of vanilla balanced by the burnt, roasted coffee beans.

Pours opaque dark brown with hint of red, small tan head that goes quickly but leaves some skim. Nose is coffee, roast malt, roast nuts, biscuit. Palate has vanilla in and out, sometimes coming through as itself, or at least vanilla wafers, and other times creating more of a cocoa effect with the coffee. Nothing objectionable in the flavors, but they dont always seem to blend well. Light-medium body, fine for a porter, but theres a lot of competition in this part of the marketplace.

Andrew196 (1539) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Dark with a flimsy beige head. Plain roast aroma and some pepper. Weird flavor on this guy, some earthy tones, more roast, notes of cola in the end. Like a crisp, watery Guinness. Tastes homebrewish to me.
