Great taste , smell , look and feel. It's my favorite. I almost wish it wasn't seasonal . Livendadream (278) - New Mexico, USA - FEB 15, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2018 Btl pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights, big tan head that vanished faster than David Blaine’s model. No lace on glass. Smells of black licorice, brown sugar, vanilla, cola and spice. Taste of vanilla , chocolate, a bit of coffee, alcohol, cola and sweet ass cookies. Medium body, under carbonated, syrupy, tongue tingly mouthfeel and a sweet, spicy finish. Well it’s ok but way too sweet!Ok it’s decent a malty, spicy holiday beer. Good for the season! bth122 (1718) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2018

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Aroma of Malts and black licorice. Taste is syrupy and vanilla nicely balanced with smokeyness and slight bitterness. Balanced and good puboflyons (3562) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2018
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of March 26, 2018.
Gorgeous looking deep dark brown pour with ruby red highlights and a modest, short-lasting off-white head.
The aroma is full of vanilla sweetness with a slightly burnt malt character in the background and light earthy hops.
Creamy and smooth light to medium body.
The taste is very sweet with the emphasis on the vanilla, as expected given the title, and a mildly bitter finish. Not awful but I prefer more straight forward Porters rather than "flavored" ones.

12 oz twist off bottle that was part of the World Market 9 pack Beers of Winter gift from my Mother in Law. MAR2618 printed on bottle neck. The pour is a brown ruby copper with a fizzy one inch light khaki head that is lasting. The aroma is sweet caramel, vanilla and soft roast malt. The taste is sweet cherry vanilla, caramel malt, and a bit of a coffee roast coming through in the finish. The palate is light bodied, very active carbonation and a sweetish vanilla lingering finish. With the sweetness and high carbonation, almost has a soda pop feel to it. patandkendra (12) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Aroma is lightly of vanilla, but there isn’t much of an aroma to this beer. Appearance is what a dark beer should be. Taste is of vanilla, notes of chocolate, and faintly of coffee. Has a mouthfeel with body. kraybr (4) - - DEC 31, 2017 does not count
Good mid sized brewery beer. Pleasant taste is not overpowering. If you are searching for a beer to knock your socks off with a sip, this won’t be the beer for you. It will however provide you with a good beer that you can enjoy all day long. Glad to have gotten this beer for the new year...

No real aroma which is disappointing. Taste is a bit flat but there is a distinct vanilla aftertaste which is pleasant. Pores very dark with a light tan head. Decent beer but not as good as their other offerings.

On tap at Applebee’s. Light nutty chocolate aroma. Barely. Taste doesn’t do much for me. Some malts and cardboard. Maybe vanilla. Meh.
