Pours brown with ruby highlights and a creamy head. Vanilla is very present, tastes artificial and overpowering. Thin for a porter. Not good.

My rating might lower if I had more than one. It's a very good beer, but its sweetness could get a little cloying after one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (3428) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pour a thin clear dark brown color with a small fast fading foamy khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark cocoa, ash, but not getting any vanilla in the aroma. Taste of burnt coffee, bitter dark chocolate, ash, and a hint of vanilla extract in the aftertaste.

Nice tasty Porter. Pour is black with no head. Delicious flavor of light roasted malt.

Palidor19 (3180) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Only a mild rep to what a Xmas porter should taste like. Mild malts with a bland finish. Slight bits of vanilla and wood are in a secondary taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Light caramel with a slight floral scent. Alcohol smell present. Dark reddish brown, but clear pour with minimal head that disappeared quickly. A medium body, lightly bitter. Soft carbonation. I cant taste the vanilla but overall a nice flavoured beer.

jkwood04 (5404) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
On tap in a shaker. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of light dark malts, light chocolate, vanilla, and dough. Flavor the same, like a watered down porter. Average texture. Not great.

stevoj (4698) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Not bad. Vanilla in the aroma doesnt mix as well as it does in the taste. Sweetness at first made me think of a baltic porter, but roast grains( and bitterness) are present under the vanilla. Slight bitterness on the palate, and overall mouthfeel is just a touch on the watery side. Otherwise, better than I expected.

Nice dark color and average head. Vanilla is not overly sweet some Carmel sand toasted hints.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, floral hops. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Average off-white head. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall an average porter which is better than what I expected.
