Pours opaque brown/black with a thick head that does eventually dissipate, but leaves a decent lace. Aroma is all sweet, with generically malty sweetness being the primary, and vanilla, coffee, roastiness coming in underneath. Flavor follows, but even more pronounced on the sweet vanilla flavor, so much that it seems almost like an artificial additive of some kind. Not recommended. beer187 (10) - - FEB 15, 2015
Solid light bodied porter
Coffee and roast body
Hints of Vanilla on the Finish Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Nothing wrong here, but nothing great. Dark brown pour with medium tan head. Aroma with roasted malt and more chocolate than vanilla. The porter part is exactly what you’d expect from an average porter, but dialed back a bit. So is the vanilla, which comes through faintly at the end. A bit too thin and carbonated for me, but not so much to be a problem. I’d happily drink this if given to me, but wouldn’t choose it if I had options. Beardaxe (293) - - DEC 6, 2014
Had at a beer tasting. It's fine. Thin and low abv with a decent vanilla sweetness in the background. Not really much else going on. justsayswell (281) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours dark brown with an inch thick head. Nose is coffee with a hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel slightly creamy. Low/ medium carbonation. Pretty typical porter base, nothing super exciting. Less pronounced vanilla than other vanilla porters. Finishes slightly dry with coffee notes. Unexciting but solid.

Exactly as advertise, has a strong coffee-bite, vanilla aftertaste. As a porter it stands well, however, as much as it defines itself form other porters, it falls in comparison in the traditional sense. It is a beer I need to be in the mood to drink, but when I am, there aren’t many better RyanRand (1) - - AUG 14, 2014 does not count
Good beer overall, very smooth and easy to drink. I'd definitely buy it again but if it's between this and other porters I'd buy another. crajun (1250) - , Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2014
