jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle at Land O Lakes WOB. Pours a very dark brown with a touch of red along the edges. Virtually zero head to speak of with the exception of a tiny island in the middle. Aroma has a good bit of vanilla and roasted malt with a hint of funkiness similar to a mild sour. Flavor is quite nice with the roasted notes really coming through in the finish. The higher alcohol is well hidden.

Okay vanilla porter, not all that imperial but not the super-sweet vanilla bomb I was expecting, either. Mostly dry, mild chocolate notes with a firm vanilla finish. Pretty terrible nose, homebrewish and sour, but luckily the taste doesnt follow suit. A bit thin, but tasty.

SpringsLicker (3604) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Clear dark brown with a fine-grained off-white head. The aroma is light cocoa powder. The flavor is roast malts, some chocolate accompanied by a strange sourness that detracts.

ganache (5773) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle. Nose roasty and chocolate, smooth, a little saccharine; pour dark brown with a tan cola head. Full body smooth (flattish even) with artificial/roughly extracted vanilla bean and non-acrid coffee and chocolate, again plagued by an artificiality. Also do need that acrid or acid touch, because this threatens to cloy without quenching. Medium-full sweetness and low bitterness. [2016.08.14: 2.6]

smaynard6000 (1137) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a minimal beige head. Almost no carbonation. Aroma is mostly of dark chocolate. Somewhat sweet roasty flavor with chocolate notes and a bit of vanilla. Medium bodied with sweet finish. Nothing imperial about this. A bit disappointing.

MaBeer1972 (1997) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle from Table and Vine. Pours out a very dark blackish brown. Thin head fades quickly. Sweet and roasty aromas and flavor. Smooth roasty body. Good balance, but still rather thick and sweet.

beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a short lived khaki head. Sugar, syrup, caramel, vanilla, light coffee and toast aroma.Vanilla, sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee and toast flavors. Medium light body and moderate carbonation. Sweet vanilla and licorice finish. Super watery and pretty bland overall. You have to really look for the flavors.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a thin almost black color with a trace soapy brown head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was vanilla and brewed coffee. The flavor was vanilla cream, brewed coffee, cocoa and hint of wood and dark fruits. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth but undercarbonated. Feels like its close to being really good but keeps falling short in every category.
