COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very smooth with just a hint of vanilla so it’s not overwhelming. I suggest adding a little cherry ale to make a cherry, vanilla porter!

Dark brown, brown lacing foam. Vanilla in aroma and taste, although only intially. Then some coffee hints, some toast. Nice porter. (Davenport 201510)

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.

keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2014
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.

Delicious porter with strong aroma and hints of vanilla flavor. Flavorful beer with a nice almost sweet chocolatey after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanIHave4Beers (4208) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2012
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.
