reebtogi (5851) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
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.

Davros (2884) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours black with a large head. Nose shows vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, delicate roast coffee. Flavours include roasted malt and vanilla. Dry but the vanilla gives the impression of sweetness.

Muggus69 (2192) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2016
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. 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!

sunstoneale (73) - MOLDOVA - SEP 12, 2016
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!

From notes. Enjoyed at Dougs house on July 04 for the first beer Ive brewed with him! 22 oz bottle. Finally got to open this damn thing. There was so much hope, and even more disappointment. The pour is a thin dirty dark brown color with a light tan colored film of head and no lace. The aroma is light on the vanilla. There is a strong sweetness to it, and a light dark roasted malt. Im disappointed by the light vanilla and abundance of lactic sweetness. The flavor is just as sweet. There is a light chocolate with the roast, but its just forced, light, and obviously fake. The finish is really dry. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a lack of decent carbonation and a dry, roasty, forced cocoa on the finish. The vanilla isnt even lingering. Ugh.
