FROTHINGSLOSH (7449) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Sampled on draft at Social this beer poured a very dark brown color with red highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was faintly tangy and malty. The flavor was malty with molasses, vanilla extract, cookie dough and a hint of dark fruits. Long malty vanilla extract finish. Medium body but smooth. Ok.

12 ounce. Thin sort of porter body with fairly strong vanilla taste. The vanilla, though, doesnt blend blend well with rest of beer and leaves an artificial taste.

After doing the MountainZilla trail run the radio crew stopped in at Chubbys in Alton and I was pleasantly surprised to find this. I got the last half pint as the keg ran dry. This beer poured quite dark and had a creamy layer. The aroma was vanilla and was pronounced. That was also tasted and later cocoa. This tended to be a sweet beer and the feel was somewhat creamy.

AirForceHops (6869) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Darker brown / almost black color. Aroma is pure vanilla extract and light chocolate notes. The body is thin even for Porter standards. Vanilla extract though the sip without much else backing it up. Light cocoa powder, carbonation needs to be tuned down, touch to fizzy. Drinkable not overly sweet but not much to it.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle:   Deep ruby, thin sudsy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft roasted nose, faint vanilla.   Toasted malts on the tongue, dusty/earthy vanilla follows.   Thankfully not as strong as others, but the vanilla does linger from start to finish, as I suppose it should.   Not as roasty as I would like for a porter.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Toasted malt finish, vanilla notes but not bright.   Not a big porter, malty nor hoppy, with a vanilla that does seem somewhat artificial.   Not bad I suppose, but nothing I would reach for again.

Sample at Tap Room, I would never give any money to this brewer so I was glad to try a sample. Notes of nuts, cocoa, vanilla bean, roasty malts, and some other misc grains. Very easy going. Honestly for Leinenkugel, this thing wasnt a total piece of crap.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear cola with an ecur head. Aroma of vanilla and toffee. Light bodied. Some caramel lurking around. Smooth finish.
