Aragh (248) - POLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Kolor brązowy, pod światło przebija na pomarańczowo. Piany praktycznie nie ma, ale jakieś resztki nawet oblepiają szkło. Zapach mało intensywny, ale są nuty wanilii, czekolady, lasu i chmieli. W smaku rzeczywiście waniliowo, jest też czekolada i minimalna wędzoność, goryczka niska palona, z wanilią utrzymującą się w tle wychodzi całkiem ciekawie. Nieszczeglnie skomplikowane ale dobre.

GothGargoyle (2573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Dark brown/black with a nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, caramel. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lightly sweet on the palate with a subtle hint of balancing bitterness, and a slightly thin finish. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, lightly roasted malts. Not bad

w_adwersarz (435) - Cracow, POLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Piana w miarę obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, prawie jak azot, zwarta, w miarę długo się utrzymuje, kremowa na powierzchni. Barwa brązowa, opalizująca, ładnie pracuje, prześwity w kolorze coś pomiędzy mocną herbatą a cocacolą. Aromat trochę palony, waniliowy, słodki jakby melanoidynowy, odrobina gorzkiej czekolady. W smaku podobnie, palony, słodki waniliowy, trochę czekolady gorzkiej. Wysycenie średnie, wytrawne, dość gładko wchodzi, goryczka niewielka z waniliowym finiszem.

Light brown beer with a white small head. The aroma of chocolate and some vanilla. The taste of chocolate and a little roasted. The beer is watery, light and drinkable. Not Bad.

Swaroga (2176) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Its dark brown and we can easy see through it. The head is small but lasts and has a creamy colour. Aroma is milk chocolate, orange and vanilla. Flavour has a strong vanilla background, good chocolate back bone yet it is watered down and makes this beer easy to drink. In this case it isnt destroying the beer since its still quite rich and enjoyable. Thats a proper pint.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak off white head. A strong woody vanilla aroma, some caramel malt as well. Medium dry mouthfeel. An interesting combination of smooth and slightly sweet vanilla, with a bitter pithy hop flavour and a background of dry biscuity malt, ensures a well rounded and balanced finish. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

Lubiere (13417) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
A dark brown porter with a thick brown head, receding. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate with nice vanilla, musty but nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel chocolate malt with light vanilla and coffee, still solid after 3 years. BB July 2012.
