Nsanders (1111) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep red brown with almost no head. Vanilla, very malty, clay, light earthy hop and water. Taste is lightly sweet. Body is watery. Typical Leinies, drinkable but safe.

Pours dark brown with quick diminshing brown head. Sweet caramel malt and vanilla on the nose. Mellow chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Pretty much what youd expect. Soft mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Fairly creamy texture. Better than I expected because the vanilla, while fairly prominent is not as overpowering than other vanilla porters Ive had. Porters dont excite me and this in not exception but its definitely decent and one Id drink occassionally in the winter months.

12oz pour - Not altogether bad. Some nice maltiness with, yes, a decent amount of vanilla on the back end. Little cola like, but this exceeded my expectations.

Bricks (1090) - Delaware, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dark beer with a slight amber hue. Aroma is neutral, somewhat metallic. Mouthfeel is very smooth, just a hint of bitter fizzy. Tastes like molasses, malty, and vanilla. Good beer.

mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Had on tap. I really like the vanilla aromas and aftertaste. Feels like this should be a bit "darker" but its still good. One of the better winter seasonals in the upper midwest area

bkurtz (1075) - MOROCCO - JAN 16, 2014
Pours brown with ruby highlights and a creamy head. Vanilla is very present, tastes artificial and overpowering. Thin for a porter. Not good.

BillWyce (1062) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured clear nut brown with a 1-finger light tan head. Aroma of nutty malt with some vanilla behind it that quickly takes over. Body is medium, and a touch watery, with a mild astringent tingle in the finish. Flavor is nutty, maybe touches of leather and butter. The vanilla is underneath, and lingers in the back.

scooterbub (1051) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice brown with a ruby red hue and a nice two inch tan head that fades quickly. Taste is roasted malt, caramel,chocolate coffee and vanilla. Similar aroma. The body is decent, a bit slick and a touch on the lighter side. Mostly clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. A good winter beer.
