Smells like coffee. Juicy like a berry. Little smokey flavor. Roasted notes, not a lot of vanilla but that’s prolly good
Taste: Smokey, dark malt, nutty, subtle vanilla bean flavor, not really sweet. Mild toasted malt nose. Black/Brown hue, mostly opaque, with tan head and delicate lace on taster glass. Medium body. Jpmercer (107) - shakopee, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Porter brewed with real vanilla beans. In Memory of the best dog ever.
Great head and a good vanilla porter.

Dark chocolate aromas with a small tan head and light lacing. The flavor is everything one would expect, malty with coffee and chocolate undertones. Smooth mouth feel with just a touch of bitterness in the after taste. chucklemation (1798) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Flavor is very similar. Has a lively body, though thin. This is quite good. katrinaez (2358) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Watery, but light chocolate. Medium brown color. Vanilla up front and and nutty aftertaste. Nice roasted aroma. Not bad, not great. Bottle

Draft to taster at Paw Paw. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt and mild vanilla. Tastes like it smells with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. A touch of bitterness, but not unpleasantly so. Enjoyable, but a full one would be plenty. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle thanks to BO. Deep brown with a beige head. Light malt and mineral aroma. Chocolaty and dry. Not much vanilla. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 7, 2015
12 oz bottle my brother brought back for me on a recent trip to Michigan. Pours a dark brown with a two-finger light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, toasted malt, vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt. Quick, dry finish of malt, caramel, and a bit of hop bitterness. Medium bodied, thin texture, moderately high carbonation. Very smooth, well balanced and an easy drinker. stebbin (4) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Decent chocolate aroma with hints of of sweetness, nice dark color which you would expect in a porter. Smooth, lighter flavor with a somewhat lighter body and texture for the style. Easy to drink, but I prefer bolder porters.
