UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Pours black with a very thin head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Taste is sweet vanilla and chocolate, warming tonroast and finishing with bourbon. Not the best Framinghammer variant, but still tasty. stevoj (5867) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2017
Bottle at RBSG. Another nice addition to the series, vanilla being a bit more boozy than the rest. Still sweet, a but tangy. Sledutah (7976) - Utah, USA - JUL 28, 2017

Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, oatmeal, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, weak bourbon, roasted malts and a slight bitter dry end. Pretty good. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - FEB 3, 2017
On tap at McGillicuddy’s, Five Corners, Essex Junction, VT.
Though poured into a pint glass, I get what’s going on, here’s the rest.
The appearance was a pure black color with a thin bar pour’s kind of slim white head that falls immediately. Stringy sliding lacing.
The aroma blends a roasty sweet coffee to cocoa bean robust combination over subtle roasty vanilla beans. Just a tad of caramel, sly breadiness. Warming lager yeastiness. Touch of dry woody/barrel nose.
The flavor takes all of those previously mentioned aromas to blend and leave a sort of rugged burnt toasty taste to ride along. Sly blended coffee/vanilla/bready/roasty aftertaste rolling into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a great sipping quality about it. Moderate carbonation. Yeastiness seems to help control the ebb and flow of the roastiness hitting my tongue, so it’s fairly smooth.
Overall, damn nice variant of Framinghammer, well worthy of finding again. I need to find bottles of this. Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2017

Sampled at the brewery. I seem to love all variations of Framinghammer and this is no exception. The vanilla comes through loud and clear and works really well to complement this already tasty porter. Good stuff!
