Pours a deep, warm, opaque sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Smoky aroma has a firm overtone of semi-sweet chocolate and more than a hint of vanilla, plus hints of caramel and quality coffee. Flavor - oo la la, like drinking a Hershey bar with Irish coffee! Strongly chocolaty, plus coffee, roast malt, caramel, vanilla, hints of licorice and woody hops. Absolutely lip-smacking. Firm texture has plenty of fizz and life. Where does a vanilla gorilla drink beer? Anywhere he (or she) wants to! :D
Really nice roasted coffee and vanilla with some warm alcohol. Overall very nice. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and some vanilla. The taste follows the nose. This is my favorite Red Brick offering. rdixon77 (2832) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Smooth chocolate and vanilla beer. Fairly roasty. the flavor doesn’t pop especially, but solid big vanilla beer. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Nice deep dark almost jet black body. Espresso, chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma, with some essence of hops. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Pours dark red-brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee with just a pinch of vanilla. Flavor is rich on chocolate and vanilla but quickly thins to a watery coffee finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

12 oz from Total Wine (North Hills). Pours black with a small white head. Aroma is vanilla, some chocolate as well. Taste is huge vanilla up front with a strong coffee finish. Body is average, slightly thinner than I like in the style. Overall one of Red Brick’s best. A very good porter with nice flavors. SpringsLicker (3639) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Black pour with an average sized tan head.
Aroma of vanilla and cocoa.
The flavor is chocolatey and vanilla too. ’Smores without the cracker.
Full and smooth, nice. crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - APR 6, 2015
