600 ml bottle from the brewery on November 28, 2014. Black, small head. Malty aroma of chocolate and vanilla, fairly sweet. Roasted malt and light vanilla taste, some notes of toasted grains, light dry bitterness. Solid stuff, unofficial beer of curling? manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015

Voilà un porter franc et pétillant. Cendré, chocolaté, légèrement acide et vanillé à la perfection. C’est exactement ce que j’ai envie de boire lorsqu’on me parle d’un porter à la vanille. Léger et goûteux. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015

(bottle) clear very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of vanilla, soy sauce; dryish flavour with a long light bitter finish HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
600 ml bottle in the 2014 Best of Beau’s gift pack from the LCBO.
Ferris (15265) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
Appearance: Pours an opaque dark mahogany brown with a couple fingers of tan head. Retention is short and lacing is slight.
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, bit of charcoal and sweet pipe tobacco.
Flavours: Vanilla, chocolate, espresso, toffee.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and velvety with moderate viscosity and light carbonation.
Overall: This is a beautiful Porter with lots of vanilla flavour and it has a bit thicker mouthfeel than many other Porters I’ve had. This is one of the better beers that Beau’s brews in my opinion and I give it top marks for upfront aromas and lots of flavour.
Bottle - Light roast and vanilla. Jet brown and a light brown head. Tons of vanilla and roast with some chocolate notes. A little overboard on the vanilla. cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Belle couleur noir avec des reflets brun et un col beige assez résistant. Aromes de vanille,café,chocolat. Simple et délicieux! HippyHop (656) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Last one in the mixer pack. Pour is a headless black. Nose is chocolate, toasted grain, vanilla. Taste is the same but the vanilla seems much more present. It’s got this strange, pleasant vanilla coke quality that I like. It’s a little thin, surprisingly dry, but quite drinkable.
