Not too portery in taste. The initial taste is vanilla, the finish is chocolate. Now if they can add strawberry, it would be a 4.5

Bomber from Roths. Black in color. Nose is roasty with a bit of sweetness. Sweet vanilla up front with a bit of roast. Very strong on the vanilla throughout with a bit of burnt coffee in the finish. The strong vanilla is balanced by the bitter roasty finish.

Pours a half finger of head on a black body. The aroma is muted vanilla, roasted malt and coffee. The taste has a background bitterness, cream, vanilla and roasted malt. The texture is soft, slight fizz, but still creamy. Great.. The taste is a bit off balance with the bitterness, but the texture is excellent.

Thanks Diana for sending. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a pure dark brown color with a slim film of an off-white to white head with some bubbles here and there as what is of there just glimmers and settles. The smell started off with a light roast leading to a semi - sweet /smooth chocolate. Vanilla seems to balance. The taste was slightly roasty and semi - sweet letting the vanilla enter in nicely. Slight roasted coffee and vanilla - esque quality is in the aftertaste. The finish is slightly dry. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Low carbonation leads to a decent smoothness rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a decent porter. Everythings balanced. Id probably have it again.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish tan head on there. Nose is pretty heavy with the vanilla, and moderate amounts of roasting complementing the vanilla. Taste is a bit sweet and skewed too heavily towards the vanilla for my tastes.

would likely be small in body without the vanilla, but as is it smooths things out quite nicely and leaves this a lightly roasted vanilla cream ale that went down easy. likely their best.

Marron/rouge trs fonc, presque noir, avec un tte marron dense et stable. Larme douce du chocolat, malt torrfi et un peu de vanille. Le got est domin par la vanille avec du malt torrfi et une finition assez amer. Cest bonne mais un peu trop sucr avec trop de vanille pour moi. Je trouve que ses gots masquent un porter mdiocre.

22oz. Apparently is now named the Backroad Vanilla Porter with a much different looking label. Ill change the name here in a second. As for the beer: big vanillad nose, hints of sweet roasty malts as well. Flavors are well blended notes of vanilla, and soft notes of coffee, roast, and bitter hops. Smooth, could be a bit louder.
