COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We use over two pounds of real vanilla beans in each seven barrel batch to infuse this brown porter with amazing complexity and a smooth rich flavor. There is nothing subtle about this beer.

12oz can - it pours an intense brown, almost black with a thin light brown head. Wonderful aroma is vanilla dominated with notes of coco puffs, coffee and cream soda. Almost seems like a thin body and a sweet aftertaste. Artificial flavors overwhelm the porter base. However I do taste vanilla beans, chocolate, mild roastiness and a hint of coffee.

Pours very dark brown with little to no head. Light carbonation. Aroma is sweet with a touch of vanilla. Malty sweet flavor with great vanilla taste. Good beer when you in the mood for dessert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in cellar for awhile. Poured into Pig snifter. Deep brown, nearly black pour with ample tan head. Good carb. Aroma is light malty roast, mild chocolate and cocoa, vanilla beans, and cookie dough. Taste is mild dark chocolates, vanilla beans, roasted malts, and cake batter. Medium light body, roasted finish. Good.

Nice roasty vanilla bean scent with a hint of cappuccino in the background. Very nice looking shiny black with barely any foam. Taste is roast followed by vanilla ending with a coffee like aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque black with little head. Smells strongly of vanilla and a hint of coffee. Big vanilla flavor with a little dark chocolate. Creamy and fairly heavy. It might make a good nitro. Pretty simple but still a nice dessert beer.

Can at home. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and decent lacing. Huge raw vanilla bean aroma - some cocoa, lightly toasty, bready, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is big vanilla bean, some caramel, earthy hopiness, some brown sugar, bread, and toasted malt with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Much better than Breckenridges version - a little too much vanilla, but could benefit from more body. Good.
