COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The craftsmanship of Vanilla Porter is evidenced in NVP. A variety of malts provide flavors of chocolate, roasted nut, caramel, and coffee. Imported vanilla beans from Papua New Guinea and Madagascar add complex and exotic flavors to this solid porter. The softening effect of nitrogen creates a velvety mouthfeel and highlights the flavors of the malts and vanilla. NVP presents another delicious way to enjoy Vanilla Porter.

Smooth. Surprisingly not to sweet. Solid porter. Color is ok. Head is ok. But smooth taste is the most remarkable part ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 Can at Macs. Checked my review of the regular draft version from 3 years ago. Tastes mostly the same though the nitro here obviously adds body and creaminess. Very dark copper pour with a thick lasting beige head. Abrupt dark chocolaty malt flavors. Vanilla is present but not overly pronounced. Toffee. Drying wood tannins keep things from being overly sweet. Slim hop bite. Ghostly finish. Not complex but well done. Works much better than the original.

beer_rookie (683) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Pours a bronze color. Slow forming nitro head, about one finger beige head. Good retention, lacing on glass after sip.

Aroma is good dose of vanilla, dark roasted malts, although light.

Taste is vanilla and light dark roasted malt. Sweet. Touch of coffee.

Mouthfeel is medium light body. Very smooth, yes very near silky. Just slides right down.

Overall, it's pretty good. Could stand to be a little heavier body. I'd buy it again, and I would recommend it.

Very dark with thick creamy off white head. Roasted malt aroma with a tinge of sweetness, slight caramel flavor with the right amount of vanilla. Smooth and creamy. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super creamy, smooth and easy to drink. As velvety and light as a porter can pull off. May seem a tad watery, so more of a summer porter, if you will. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

His is a great beer with a taste that goes well for desert. I recommend not passing up on this baby, especially when you see it on tap. Great finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like Breckinridge vanilla porter but I'm not a huge fan of the nitro. Very creamy, but it seems to loose its edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2622) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Pours a thin light tan head on a dark brown body.
Aroma is vanilla, coffee with milk and roasted malt.
Taste more vanilla and nice roasty notes.
Texture is softer.
