From a can. Vanilla aroma with hints of smokiness. Classic dark porter appearance with a well retained off white head. Very strong vanilla flavour with roasted coffee undertones. Very creamy with a sweet fruity finish.very drinkable.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Very nice dark brown color with an extremely dense off-white head. Vanilla and milk aroma. The taste has too much vanilla and too little smoke for my taste.

This beer is my personal all-time favorite. Being a vanilla freak, when I saw this beer at the Mill Street Brewpub at Toronto Pearson International Airport, I had to try it. Ended up ordering two of them. Its scent is definately that of natural vanilla. Its taste just blew me away. Bold vanilla with a hint of cocoa and maybe a little sweet coffee. Too bad I can't find it anywhere in Quebec, It really would be my go to dessert beer. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ENG: 440ml can from Liquor Mart Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Very clear, dark brown to red color with small, beige head. Aromas of vanilla and chocolate are very pronounced, smells great. Tastes chocolate and cocoa, creme, milk. Later on some caramel comes in. Its quite hard to distinguish any aftertaste. If theres any, I think maybe a bit caramel. The mouthfeel is low to medium, low carbonation, a bit watery. Overall this beer smells fantastic, and taste at the start-up is great, but after a while you realize there is quite low body and watery mouthfeel. Too bad...

PL: Puszka 440ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do kieliszka. Bardzo klarowna, ciemno brązowa - czerwonawa barwa z niewielką, beżową pianą. Aromaty wanilii i czekolady bardzo mocne, pachnie świetnie. W smaku czekolada, kakao, śmietanka, mleko. Po chwili rwnież karmel. Ciężko dostrzec jakikolwiek posmak choć może być nieco karmelowy. Odczucie w ustach dość lekkie, niskie nasycenie, nieco wodniste. Podsumowując świetnie pachnące piwo, smak na początku wydaje się rwnie genialny, jednak po chwili dochodzi się do wniosku, że piwo jednak jest płytkie w treści i na domiar złego dość wodniste. A szkoda...

New England Bucket List Trip #143. Nitro at the Ottawa location. Pours a hazy brown with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, cigars. The taste is vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits, cherries, yogurt. Thin bodied.

Excited about trying another offering from Canada and this nitro charged vanilla porter from Mill St. Brewery sounds like a great Sunday afternoon change from the heat of the wood stove and the frigid remnants of the crazy snowstorm we had last night. Despite the fact that the can tells you to serve cold, I have a slight aversion to drinking a porter at refrigerator temps, so I placed it on the counter for a few minutes before venturing in. Whoot! As soon as I cracked this, the contents of the can came pouring out, exploding with aroma, foam and beer! Well, half a beer is better than none and it does smell nice! The body is lightweight, thin, the flavor almost an afterthought and the nut brown liquid and milk chocolaty head are a visual mirror image of the flavor and palate. Of course, the warmer it gets, the better it is, and I feel a need to go to Mill St. and beg them to take that serve cold direction OFF THE CAN! Serve mildly cool would much better! Im at about a 50 degree temp now and its ten times better than what I had when I started. NOW I can write this thing. The aroma is heavy vanilla wrapped around a weak, milk chocolaty flavor, not as sweet as it was cold, and actually having a pleasant bitter back. A light caramel is present, keeping a solid foundation underneath the hops, and balancing out the taste slightly in favor of the sweet malts. Its still too thin, too flat to really appreciate the finish, but the aroma and flavor are making up for the lean mouth feel. Wouldnt buy it, but Id give this another go if offered up...

440 mL can. amber brown pour, creamy beige head. Aroma is strong vanilla, overpowering mostly. Taste has a bit of roast in it. Body is a bit thin and light. Did not like this one much.

LagerGirl (8) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015 does not count
Amazing smell, hints of sweet vanilla and oak were very intoxicating .. As anticipated given its colour, this mild beer drinker wasnt a major fan of this beers overall taste.. However the aftertaste was quiet pleasant and sweet
