Bottle. Pours, looks and smells like a porter. Theres a definite vanilla essence in the aroma, and an evenly tilted vanilla swirl in the flavor, too. Not bad. (#5339, 11/23/2013)

Tap. Pours a clear brown body with a minimal fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty minimal, especially with how cold it was served, but there is a little light roast, coffee, and vanilla bean. The flavor is pretty well dominated by the vanilla beans, so much so that it tastes pretty artificial. Theres some roast, chocolate, and a big of a black strap molasses like sweetness on the finish. Not bad, but a little too one dimensional to be really good.

Bottle: The aroma consists roasted nuts, light caramel, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes. The finish has light-moderate roasted nuts with a touch of coffee. Its light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, considering its from Leinenkugel, I expected it to be much sweeter. Its not that sweet and the vanilla isnt over the top.

Pours deep brown with red backlights.....short, whipped, tan head. Scent is malt, vanilla..a little nutty. Taste is chocolate and vanilla....creamy. A little bit thin, but a very nice, sweet flavour....a nice dessert beer...and a bargain for the price.

Suttree (6288) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Black, no head. Faint aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is vanilla and chocolate, plus some odd tart notes that seem kind of out of place. Ive had worse, Ive had better...

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. Finish is dry. Kind of thin for a porter. Easy enough to drink.

Mild pecan nose. Clear ruby black, medium tan, good lace. Vanilla dominant, kibble underneath. Doughy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Mild residual sweetness that isnt too off-putting. Good.

Dark brown-red with a white head. The aroma is fairly faint but I get a hint of vanilla and some chocolate. The flavor has some artificial vanilla notes as well as some toasted malt, nuts and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
