Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Black with a minimal head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, some vanilla and hints of dried fruit. Similar taste. Smooth and with a rather long finish. A tasty one.

@ Basunen 16-4-16: Riktig stor bourbondoft. Mycket smakrik och len öl med tydliga toner av choklad, bourbon och kaffe även tydlig vanilj i eftersmaken. Thisis12ptfont (1199) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Aromas of harsh bourbon, oak, leather, barrel wood, chocolate, raisins, bourbon soaked plums, figs and coffee. Pours black with almost no foam and a very faint lace. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, oak, caramel, vanilla and toasted coconut upfront. Mid palate brings notes of raisins, leather, figs, prune juice chocolate milk and fudge. Finishes smooth with more chocolate and bourbon on the palate. Overall, a really well done BA porter with nice complexity. slowrunner77 (12159) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 27, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Bottle from notes: Tanilla used to be a favorite but can be overly sweet and simple at times. That is the case here, though the beer is enjoyed. Sweet vanilla cocoa and booze. Warming. Good, but not worth the premium price.
Gotta knock the original 3.9, as this latest 2016 batch would not score within a point of that. Thin and weak, simple, not even close to being worth the coin. bb (9525) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Blackish beer with a big light brown head. Bourbon and vanilla aroma with chocolate. Caramel and toffee flavor with bourbon. Medium bodied. Toffee and bourbon linger with light roast and light red fruit.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with foamy tan head. Nose and taste of vanilla bean, roast coffee, roast chocolate malt, oak, light bourbon and snickerdoodle. Medium body. baraciisch (3280) - California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Deep black in color... Aroma of bourbon, chocolate malts... Hint of tobacco on the nose... Nice tannish head... Flavor is vanilla, chocolate malts, with notes of bourbon on the palate... Delicious, better than the imperial tanilla

A good beer, tanilla is one of my faves but this did not wow me like i was expecting. bhensonb (15355) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle hosted by Capitol Beer in Sacramento. Pours dark black with orange glints. Aroma of bourbon/chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is bourbon vanilla chocolate with some dark malt background. Delicious. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Black with a fizzy off white head. Roasted grain, chocolate, and faint bourbon aroma. Smooth creamy palate. Tastes of milk chocolate, vanilla, and faint bourbon - too basic: it’s lacking the complexity of better barrel aged beers. A more robust bourbon presence might have gone some way toward making this a better beer, but alas! Especially disappointing for the price point.
