It’s a dark beer for people who don’t like dark beer. In other words it is light-bodied with sweet chocolate and vanilla flavors, and very low bitterness. It’s certainly not made for beer geeks, but it’s alright.
12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown color with a small off white head. Aromas of vanilla, coffee, roasted malt. Medium bodied, a little thin, but tastey

Marrón muy oscuro (aprox. 32 SRM) con matices rubí en las zonas más translucidas y con espuma khaki oscuro. Desde el aroma se percibe que esta English porter es algo muy especial: crème brulée y café. El sabor es de torta de chocolate bitter, lo cual es indicativo de que esta cerveza de 5,5 % ABV no es tiene el dulzor que uno podría pensar mkel07 (6545) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle from Westin Airport Hotel in Detroit on 8 October 2017. Vanilla, coffee and beer make for a great combination and it suits no better beer style than Porter. Looks like a black coffee with a creamy tan head and smells of vanilla and roasted coffee beans. Thin in the mouth but it builds to a creamy texture. The finish is bitter with roasted coffee bean aftertaste. wombat23 (2129) - Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours almost black with a small beige head. Aroma is largely vanilla, with coffee and chocolate notes. Taste follows nose. Finish is sweet vanilla. higgsbison (274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2017
3/1016 Thin, no body to speak of, nice carbonation. Smooth. Medium sweet. no hop bitterness at all, either when drinking or as an aftertaste. Notes of coffee and caramel . Not much character. Boring. Very drinkable, but why bother?

Pours a very dark brown with a ring of tan head. Aroma smoky vanilla java. Flavor carries nice vanilla character but feels a bit watered down.

12 oz bottle from a grocery store in Upper Michigan. This bottle reads 5% ABV. Aroma is strong in vanilla, chocolate, coffee; roasty, hint of licorice. Pours dark dark brown to black with a one finger beige head that falls into a ring after a minute; leaves a bit of lace. Taste is sweet and roasty, finishing with a slightly dry bitterness; flavors are chocolate, vanilla, coffee, wet stone. This is really good. I don’t understand the low scores for this. I can’t find anything wrong with it. mjmoen (626) - - JUL 9, 2017
B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Good vanilla, but after taste is lacking alobar (3966) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2017
Cola brown pour with minimal tan head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Prominant vanilla flavor with some roasted malt. Okay.
