Dark brown, brown lacing foam. Vanilla in aroma and taste, although only intially. Then some coffee hints, some toast. Nice porter. (Davenport 201510) cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pours a very dark brown with a tan head and spotty lacing, the aroma has a kick of malt and vanilla at first, not overpowering by any means but you can for sure get the vanilla, the aroma has a vanilla front end with some malt and molasses in the finish, decent mouthfeel and not too thin, not bad. ajnepple (6981) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Black appearance with a lingering tan head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, toffee, chocolate and light roasted coffee notes. Similar flavor, pretty sweet with minimal bitterness to balance it out. Average body with a creamy feel, soft carbonation and a smooth finish. OK, a little too sweet overall.

This has a nice bit of vanilla in the aroma and taste. It is subtle and not at all overpowering. Very nice for sipping by the fireplace on a cold evening. BeerCook (18) - Midland, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Delicious porter with strong aroma and hints of vanilla flavor. Flavorful beer with a nice almost sweet chocolatey after taste.

On Draught at Front Street in Davenport.
Pours a basically black color with a small but well retained head.
The aroma is sweet, some molasses, a little roast, certainly some vanilla in there as well.
The flavor is rich, some tobacco, a good bit of roastiness, & some not too overbearing vanilla. The beer is only mildly sweet and at no point seems over-vanilla-ed or artificial tasting.
This exceeded my expectations for sure.
