Dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma of light vanilla and some malts. It isnít coming through, taste has elements of vanilla and caramel as well. Itís good, but not great.

*From notes* Thanks to Francis for bring this beer back for me. Pours black with no head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is vanilla and not just a hint. A little thin but overall it is nice to have a vanilla beer that you get the vanilla flavor and its not hidden.

Draft. Blackish beer with a dark cream head. Caramel aroma. Artificial vanilla flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Caramel and artificial vanilla lingers with light grain.

Smell is caramel and malt. Taste is caramel, vanilla, malt, and a bit of mineral. Light to medium body, low carbonation, and no foam.

maley1 (1193) - Calgary, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, caramel and slightly nutty. Taste of roasted malts, faint caramel, vanilla and a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation, well balanced.

Best one Iíve had from this brewery, which otherwise is average (based on the white and the IPA). Very nice aroma of strong vanilla and porter. Decent flavor too, strong vanilla and caramel. Canít decide if flavor is artificial or not, but Iíd drink this again. Sweet.

On draft at Whole Foods Chandlerís Watering Hole. Medium brown in color with a thin, khaki head. Pungent nose of sickeningly syrupy vanilla and caramel with only the tiniest bit of roasty malt. The taste follows the nose with cloying vanilla and caramel; itís like cheap, artificial vanilla-flavored coffee creamer was added to a basic porter. Somewhat watery body. While itís miles better than the first time I sampled it months ago, this one is still a big letdown.
