Pours a dark brown, with good tan head. Aroma of vanilla and malts. Taste is of quality vanilla beans mixed into a decent porter. Not particularly complex, but I really like this one since I am a fan of vanilla beer. Thumbs up! katrinaez (2307) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Pours dark black with lots of foam, aroma of bitter malts and vanilla. Taste to match. Bitter malts upfront with vanilla at the end. Tap. Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2017

Consummation: Roasted malt, lots of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, a bit of smoke
Adjunct: Bacon, vanilla, and oak; black with a light tan, creamy head; a bit thin for a stout
650. Pours an opaque matte black with a dense and creamy light tan head that settles quickly away to not much more than a thin ring. Big sweet nose, pretty much all vanilla. Disappointingly, it has that dry smell you get with synthetic vanilla. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Light milk chocolate notes with tons of that chemical-y dry vanilla flavor that tastes artificial. I believe their statement that they are using real beans, I just don’t think these are quite the right beans to showcase this forwardly in the aromatics and flavor profiles. It’s a solid, relatively dynamic base porter, but the vanilla is a little too far forward and not pleasing enough on its own merits.

650ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla with hints of coffee and roasted grains. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness and vanilla. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a well crafted porter that is both tasty and well balanced. Recommended. trapped (3664) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish tint, foamy beige head, mocha aroma, medium carbonation, chocolate/mocha taste, full body, long mocha finish. Tasty and satisfying, great brew. Davros (3309) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours black with a large head. Muggus69 (2755) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2016
Nose shows vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, delicate roast coffee.
Flavours include roasted malt and vanilla. Dry but the vanilla gives the impression of sweetness.
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. sunstoneale (75) - MOLDOVA - SEP 12, 2016
Deep near-black body, pours a good inch of thick dense beige foam.
Lovely aroma - stacks of vanilla (bean), toasted brioche/French toast, cafe au lait, biscuit & chocolate.
Full body, slick slightly sweet, feels like it could be a monster by dries out a fair bit (lactose?). Low carbonation.
Vanilla flavours abundant on the body also. Mends well with hot chocolate & coffee liqueur notes, bit of cakey/pudding/caramel sort of thing going on there. Low bitterness, dries out with lingering spice on finish.
Love the flavours but kind of want more oompf!
Tons of vanilla and hints of chocolate in aroma. Taste is comprised of some milk chocolate and loads of almost cloying vanilla sweetness. Like drinking vanilla icecream, weird but cool!
