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.

Bottle, SBT. Cola, roasty brown. Sweet grassy nose, root beer, sweet, dr. pepper body. So strange, Im not getting this at all. Kind of sticky, tickling high carbonation. Roasty cream finish. Rather lactic. No thanks, shared it with the drain.

Poured a brown color with aromas of light vanilla, some roast and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, thin mouth feel.

Cybercat (5393) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours a barely translucent chocolate brown with a nice light tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is mainly caramel and vanilla, rather sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and not too fizzy. OK if not outstanding.

jkwood04 (5369) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
On tap in a shaker. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of light dark malts, light chocolate, vanilla, and dough. Flavor the same, like a watered down porter. Average texture. Not great.

heemer77 (5330) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle. Nearly black colored body with a very thin light tan head. A leathery nose of cherries and vanilla. There is also coffee to complement with some roast. A thin and highly carbonated body has a slick smooth feeling in the mouth. This tastes of vanilla noted medium roast coffee. There is also some bit of milk chocolate. Actually, this is nicely done with some subtle vanilla. Better than expected.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Dark brown in color, tan head. Nice aroma a tad light with the vanilla but the porter malts come through nicely. Nice flavor this was a good after dinner beer or a good pasta beer.

bottle. brown with small head. vanilla is more subtle than I expected. somewhat thin flavor profile overall. some smokiness and faint chocolate. not bad, but inferior to other vanilla porters Ive had from Atwater or Breckenridge.

snoworsummer (5307) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Draft. Pours dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is strong vanilla, roasted malts, light earthy notes, and plums. Flavor is dry malts, some vanilla and dark fruit sweetness, with light ash. Feels thin throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Complex aroma, but one that was ultimately a little disappointing -- dark, toasty/roasty/coffee malt, a little dogginess and earth, tar, very light nutty sweet. Almost opaque, twistoff longneck, cluttered label. Acidic coffee, vanilla bitterness, dry. Earthy on the lips. Medium-light body. Mild vanilla tones in the finish. Not cloying. Reasonably smooth, lacks a certain richness. Publix, I-10 @ Thomasville Rd.
