You can definitely taste the vanilla - it gives the beer more sweetness than most porters. Some carmel notes as well. Very dark brown, with a medium brown head. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Carol’s chili fest. Wasn’t expecting to like this, but actually had a lot of good flavor and could have had a few of these. I liked the sweetness in this, a good balance with the lightly roasted malt and the sweet vanilla flavor. Wasn’t too overbearing at all. Surprisingly good.

Bottle. Taste is vanilla extract, chocolate, hay and charred wood. Very decent winter brew! jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Dark brown-black pour. Aroma is underwhelming vanilla and some caramel.
Taste is coffee, chocolate and vanilla.

On tap at Tanners in Kimberly. Pours dark brown with a cream colored head and great lacing. Looks luscious. Aroma has caramel. And caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some roast with hints of vanilla - a bit thin. Meh - ok.

Doesn’t smell great, but it is deliciously comforting. Love drinking this after a cold day outside. geologyguy (1583) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2013

on tap, dark brown with creamy tan head, aroma of chocolate and vanilla, flavor is similar albeit a little soft as expected , but decent smooth beer DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a deep amber color with a foamy off white head. Vanilla dominates the nose, but I do also get a bit of chocolate and roasty coffee. Ugh, just obnoxious vanilla flavor all the way down. Way over the top. With the thin, flat body, it does go down pretty easily. That taste is just awful. If 7 year olds were allowed to drink, this is the beer that would be marketed to them.
