Truly a one-of-a-kind. We balance coffee-like, dark roasted malts with the sweet, seductive flavor of vanilla beans. The result? A deliciously unique flavor.

On tap at Lazlos in Lincoln. From Notes 9/29/2012. Pours a deep brown white white head. Artificial vanilla, dark malts, roasty flavors. Sometimes I really dig this beer, but most of the time I feel like the vanilla has a really artificial, fake flavor to it.

Not as Good as their peanut butter porter but a solid beer. Light cream, milk and vanilla flavors. Smooth and light for the style. Almost a sweet stout / porter

12 oz bottle. BB Nov. (Happy Harrys) Fargo, ND.
Dark brown - black color with a small light tan head. Roasted malt, sweetness, brown sugar, coffee and vanilla in the aroma. The flavor is sweet marmalade, sugar, vanilla, coffee and toasted malt. A bit too sweet and coffee-y for me. But not bad.

Draft. Color is nearly black, thin lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is sun tale vanilla extract, mild roast, light chocolate.

Subtle vanilla throughout the entire sip. Body is normal for the style. Very subtle roasted malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.

Tap at Old Chicago Olathe. Deep brown with a decent sized creamy head. Vanilla bean, tootsie roll, light earthiness and sheet cake. Has an initial burst of sweetness and then falls flat quickly. Lighter body with a crisp feel.

UrbanCaveman (193) - Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
On tap at Shorts in Iowa City. Arrived in a shaker pint. Appearance: Arrived as a glass of black (in the bar lighting) liquid, with almost no head - just a thin, patchy cap. Smell: Sweet caramel and blackstrap, with hints of a lightly roasted coffee and a heavy dose of vanilla extract. Taste: Actually, somewhat bland. There are flavors of light coffee, chocolate, and vanilla, but they seem rather thin and dispersed. Supporting them is quite possibly the lightest malt backbone Ive tasted in a porter, almost not present. Mouthfeel: Quite light and thin, and light on the carbonation as well. This goes down quickly, as it feels as though it has little substance. Overall: Not exactly a game-changer or favorite for me. Ill likely not repeat this one.
