12oz bottle. Pours a medium brown color with an inch tan head that left a couple rings of lacing. Smell is vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Taste follows the smell with vanilla first and foremost followed by coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, nuts and malt. Lightly carbonated, mouthfeel is thin, a bit watery nasmith003 (252) - Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2016

Can - nitro (another in the "How the Hell did I miss this" series). Vanilla, chocolate malt and straw aroma. Very dark brown with light tan head. Moderately sweet vanilla chocolate malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. No carbonation, nice body. Very nice. MarcoDL (4845) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2016 Nitro draft at slaters. Aroma of creamy roasted malt, vanilla and chocolate. Taste had creamy roast, vanilla, nuts and chocolate. Nice.

Pours a dark brown with white head. A strong chocolate and creamy aroma. A very rich creamy chocolate taste with some malts and coffee. A nice balanced chocolate aftertaste. Boomersmancave1 (133) - Wheatland, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Out of all the vanilla porters on the market, this one kicks butt. Bottle. Vanilla and malt aroma. Malty vanilla flavors, but it's more intense than other vanilla porters out there. Nice beer! jsporrer (982) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours a clear medium brown with a medium head of tan foam. Not much aroma. Fairly thin and watery with not much flavor. Not really bad but just not that good. Pumpkin87 (248) - - JUN 14, 2016
Pours from bottle a deep dark brown with garnet depths, one-finger, slightly pinkish buff head that leaves some nice lacing.
Nose is roast malt, caramel, slight milk chocolate. First swallow had me asking where the vanilla was, but that came through stronger after a moment. Sprightly mix with the malt and lactose, balanced again chocolate and whiff of dark fruit without becoming heavy.
The selling points here are creamy mouthfeel, controlled alcohol and pleasant flavor not trying to pulverize your palate. A good session beer.
