COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One way to describe this beer is a dark beer for people who dont like dark beers. Another way is delicious. Notes of cocoa, espresso, and delicately roasted barley blend nicely with real Mexican vanilla from Arizona Vanilla Company. This medium bodied, highly sippable beer is quickly becoming a local favorite.

maxwelldeux (4358) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Can. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light-brown head on there. Nose is fairly heavy on the vanilla, but pleasantly so, and includes some roasting and hints of chocolate. Taste is fairly sweet, and has a lot of vanilla, but little "porter" to it. Smell is much better than the taste for me.

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, burnt malts and vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, hint of chocolate, touch of bitter espresso and syrupy vanilla. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, pretty good porter.

djd07 (12575) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Can. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong vanilla and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with rich chocolate, sweet vanilla, good.

DMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at The Little Woody, Phoenix. This is an enjoyable, flavorful porter; flavors of Porter and vanilla were present, and it developed more flavor as it warmed. I prefer some underlying bitterness in a porter that isnt present here, but I dont think thats by accident; this is supposed to be easy to drink, and it is. Medium consistency.

Draft at World of beer Tempe. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has a lot of artificial smelling vanilla in the nose. Tastes of fake vanilla and burned malt. Finish lingers a bit which sucks since I hate the taste of this beer.
