after4ever (7719) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2017
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 dont think these are quite the right beans to showcase this forwardly in the aromatics and flavor profiles. Its a solid, relatively dynamic base porter, but the vanilla is a little too far forward and not pleasing enough on its own merits.

reebtogi (5940) - 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 (2944) - 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 (2229) - 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!
