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.

Tap at Brink. Amber-brown, stained glass. Creamy beige head. The vanilla is huge and overpowering, really the only thing going on. Medium bodied, very easy to drink for the ABV, probably because it is so sweet. Too sweet to go back for more, not a quality offering. My score seems way too high.

Poured from bottle. Good vanilla and chocolate smell and flavor. Not to over powering. Smooth. Somewhat rich. I surprisingly like this

dmac (5827) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Park East. Poured a thinner super dark brown body with minimal head. Aroma started off with some celery and dry vanilla that leads to an artificial syrup along with green veggies. The body is thinner with subtle carbonation and a syrupy finish. Flavor is artificial vanilla, dark toast, green veggies. Blah and fake overall.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear dark brown amber colored brew with a fast dissipating beige head that leaves behind a thin white ring and a film top, with minimal lacing. Aroma of vanilla, a hint of roasted chocolate malt, light coffee and white chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of roasted chocolate malt, plenty of vanilla bean, a hint of cinnamon and light coffee. Finish is semi-sweet, some smooth character with a slowly disappearing vanilla and light caramel aftertaste. The vanilla presence is touch overwhelming making more of an after dinner specialty porter than a meal beverage.

RobertDale (5793) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2014
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.

thornecb (5679) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours mahogany into a shaker. Tan head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Vanilla and roasted nut aromas. Medium bodied and dry with upfront vanilla turning to crisp nutmeat in the lasting earthy finish.

EithCubes (5662) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle, ungainly screw-top. Faint nose of portery chocolate, pours light brown with a fizzy tan head. Taste sweet with medium vanilla and light chocolate, closer to cola, really. Fizzy medium body, faint bitterness, lightly sticky. Touch of unclean earthiness, mouthfeel a bit off-putting. Just dump a shot into your Pepsi next time. [2015.12.25: 2.4]

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Black with a small tan head. Vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, sugar, sweet malts, light coffee and roast. A little too sweet.

cheap (5540) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Vanilla gives it a smell of vanilla laced old aged lager. Nice and black in the glass and had a decent quick fading head. First taste is mostly vanilla, reminds me for some reason of another vanilla porter drink. Difficult at times to get down. Yes, perhaps if they let up on the vanilla a little it would be more civilized. Finish is vanilla flavored dark beer. Could perhaps use some more distracting co2.
