On tap at TJs. Poured a dark brown color with a thin sized off white head. Vanilla, roast, chocolate, and a coffee bitter finish. Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2017
Nice strong dark brown head of varying sized bubbles. Rich and malty aroma with some vanilla, roasted grains, anise, sweet malts and some molasses. Color is a very dark brown. Complex flavor with licorice, dark roasted malts, burnt sugar, a hint of smoke and some dry dusty grains. Moderate alcohol presence and warming. Finishes creamy and malty with lingering vanilla. A damn good porter. PugUglyBrewer (791) - - JUN 9, 2017
Opaque black color with a thin creamy head of light tan foam. Not as heavy on the vanilla as promoted. Vanilla driven however with some cocoa and coffee roast to back it up. Smooth and delicious. Patersoi (168) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2017
Hoping for more bouquet from the double vanilla. Pours viscous Black with super fine honeycomb head. The vanilla is upfront and present along with sweet malt but too much else. Hints of charcoal in the early finish where the vanilla makes its presence further felt. The alcohol is never fully balanced off throughout. Perhaps less alcohol and a few different malts would have added some complexity.

dark cola color that settles black in the glass. thick light tan head. Good body to the head, slowly falls to a thick collar. Big soap like rings on the sides of the glass.
Smells like a milkshake. Coffee, vanilla, roasted and burnt grain. Slight burnt tire and earthyness to this. Very solid nose.
taste is heavy on the vanilla, soft coffee, earthy grain and malts. Touches of burnt tire. Had on tap before and was a sweet vanilla bomb. More rounded with some time.
Still sweet but more rounded. Not as much vanilla when had on tap.
Medium bodied. Slightly creamy in the mouth. Little hints of booze but harder to drink due to the vanilla sweetness. Still pretty solid.
