12oz. bottle. Nose of sweet chocolate and vanilla, with dark, bready and very lightly roasty malts, faint hints of cherry cola and coffee here as well. Deep, dark brown in color, nearly black, with a lasting, fine, light tan head, unfiltered as advertised, with a slight amount of sediment which was poured. Flavor profile is full of dark sweetness, vanilla and chocolate as well, but not overwhelmingly so, the overall effect is of a mild sweetness and vanilla tone, rather than making this the only factor. Some mild roast, faint licorice and coffee towards the finish, which also shows a very light tinge of hop bitterness. Finely effervescent and smooth on the palate with a medium body. Nicely drinkable, not bad at all for what it is. Hophaze (192) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Dark brown pour, vanilla aroma stands out. Taste is definitely more a brown than it is a porter. Nothing extraordinary. Beats a Coors Light

Not quite black, 1 finger white head. Roast and a lot of vanilla in the nose. Quite sweet with a little roast. More of a brown ale than a porter. Pleasant beer. RobertDale (6474) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2012
On tap. Comes almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, and roast. Taste is roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. Fairly sweet. Interesting. evelucha (4) - overland park, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2012 does not count
Also think this smells like spoiled milk. Can really taste the vanilla beans. Will not buy again.

This beer smells like spoiled milk and tastes like candied milk. It is disgusting and I can’t believe it’s rated so high. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2012
on tap, dark brown with deep tan brown head, creamy vanilla aroma, good malty roast with chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavors, silky finish BeerandBlues2 (13311) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is vanilla, roast and chocolate malt, dates and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with vanilla notes, light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a smallish tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is vanilla and some roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt, some coffee, lots of vanilla. Mouthfeel is a bit astringent. Long, overly sweet finish. I’ve had better vanilla porters. fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2012
A dark brown beer with a small tan head. The aroma is nice roasted malt, vanilla, and cocoa, but a little weak. The flavor is bittersweet cocoa, dark fruits, and vanilla.
