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

Poured from can. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Pours black with off white head. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Medium body and creamy texture. A nice brew, but maybe a tad too sweet.

Where and how: can 440 ml, LCBO
Aroma strong, yet bit too sweet vanilla notes. Chocolate feel present but muted by first.
Appearance :
Top: medium, fine thick creamy top.
Base: clear, dark amber-brown.
Palate : smooth with somewhat creamy texture, mild carbonation. Mid bodied.
Taste: as in aroma sweet vanilla up front, tad overpowering this ale. Finish bit washed out with hints of milk chocolate.
Other notes passable.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Opaque black with a quickly dissipating head. Vanilla, roast, chocolate, malt aroma as expected, but not particularly potent. Relatively thin for a porter. Creamy. Roast and chocolate are certainly present, but the vanilla is relatively faint. Mildly bitter roast finish. Mediocre.

Based on previous Mill Street experiences, I was hoping to enjoy but not be wowed. I was wrong about this one, its a pretty interesting beer. I have never seen a beer look this good creamy head-wise, not even Guinness. This dark brown ruby pour has a very light tan, perfectly creamy and thick head. Maybe it is from some unnatural conjurings but it looks great. An aroma of sweet vanilla latte, some cocoa and lightly roasted malts, nuttiness and cream lure you into a taste that is the same and extremely enjoyable. At times I am suspicious of real vanilla but overall it tastes authentic and pleasantly well balanced, leaning on the sweet side. But who wants bitter vanilla? Thick creaminess comprises the body and a smooth roasted coffee and vanilla ice cream taste lingers in this low carbonated Porter. A pleasure.

440 ml can. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste of coffee and cherries. Palate is smooth and a light for a porter. Overall a nice offering.

440ml can into an English pint. Pours a jet black with a light mocha head. Nose is really quite unpleasant, perhaps a little too much licorice amid the vanilla and chocolate. Flavour-wise is full on milk chocolate with a bit of vanilla mixed in. Smooth and velvety on the palate, perhaps a little too sweet.

Can to nonic glass, the beer pours an inky black with a slight off white head. Aroma is strong vanilla, cream, licorice, spices, booze, cinnamon and other stuff...though a bit one dimensional. The taste carries roasted malt, coffee, vanilla...and is biased to the sweet side of things. The palate is just ok; I hate nitrogen in beer and would rather have this carbonated instead. In fact it obscures the taste of and makes it seem more watery than I like...plus it reminds me of guiness which is probably one of my most hated beers. Overall...this is just OK. Nothing horrible but could be better.

Definitely my favourite Mill Street product. The vanilla aroma and flavour are a perfect match for this style.
