Draft at the Phoenix Open. Dark brown pour, light head. Sweet vanilla, chocolate flavora. A tad artificial but not awful. DocLock (10646) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle from Wegman’s. Pours turbid ruby/dark brown with tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, caramel, coffee, nuts. Tastes malty, with notes of nuts, molasses, hops, vanilla. Tart finish. adnielsen (10601) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Still deciding if I should "party" with Dunt. Pours a clear, deep reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy, sweet cereal, vanilla, chocolate aroma. Fairly sweet, Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, vanilla, caramel candy, a bit woody/grainy flavor. Drinks pretty fucken good.

Bottle. Deep cola pour with a small beige head. Artificial vanilla aroma. A hint of roast and chocolate. Pretty thin on the palate. Just okay, but drinkable. DuffMan (10267) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Medium-dark brown with an average tan head. Very fake vanilla aroma and flavour, some nice roast undertones, but the fake vanilla kind of killed this for me. On the thin side too.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Pretty sweet, definitely a lot of vanilla and chocolate, with lighter nuts, earth, tobacco, and brown sugar. Light body, moderate to medium carbonation, and a sweet, fizzy mouthfeel. So so. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
12oz bottle with a twist-off cap, thanks to Greg. Best by 2/11/13. Dark clear brown / red color. Thin light brown head. Little loose dots of lace. Sweet taste. Lighter carbonation. Medium body. Kind of a sticky aftertaste. Vanilla extract aroma, caramel, not much portery goodness to back it up. OK, but I’m not a fan of this arminjewell (9583) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with thin slightly off white/tan head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, slightly artificial but not bad, some slight roast, coffee, caramel, hints of cocoa powder as well. Taste is very straightforward, vanilla notes mix right into coffee, chocolate, and finishing with some roasted malts, slightly bitter. While its straightforward, I actually like this style of beer, so it worked for me. A bit thin on the palate. onceblind (9397) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Clear black with a thin foamy light beige head. Nose is a little toasty with a bit of caramel and dark cocoa roastiness. Flavor is lightly roasty with lots of caramel and a light touch of cocoa and a faint kiss of coffee. Mostly roasted earthy sweet caramel. Medium body with nice roasty dessert-y sweetness. blipp (9124) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel candies, lightly roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. Very vanilla forward. Pretty good.
