Bottle from Epsom Circle Market. Nice vanilla aroma. Appearance is clear dark reddish brown with 1 finger-sized off white head and nice lacing. Taste is nice vanilla with balance of sweet and bitter, but I dont get any smokiness. Palate is medium to full bodied with lively (a little too lively) carbonation that initially stings the tip of the tongue a little bit--as it mellows in the glass you get a creaminess at the back of the mouth. Finish is slightly bitter and long. Overall, based on all of the praise for this I expected a little bit more. It is still very good but not the stellar offering we usually come to expect from this brewer.

A disgusting beer, a bad mix, dont know what the guys (and gals) at Stone were thinking, is a vanil barf bomb.

Un bomber achet dans le Maine. Une robe brune fonce avec une mousse beige. Un nez plus fum que vanill. Une bouche agrable, ronde avec une touche de fume et une finale iod avec des notes de vanille. Agrable sans plus.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle: wasnt as big of a fan of this as I was hoping I would be. I think it needed a bit more roastiness to balance out the sweet vanilla to me. Just didnt sit right on my palate.

airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Appearance: very dark maroon color, can see that its clear when held up to the light, pours with a large tan head that settles into a nice density Aroma: coffee, dark roasted malt, Taste: coffee, has a vanilla warmth and sweetness beneath the coffee, bitter finish, Palate: soft carbonation, heavy mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste Overall: a good porter and I like the vanilla, could use a stronger vanilla sweetness but I guess this isnt a stout, simple and straightforward, very drinkable

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bomber. Poured deep brown with a short-lived tan head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet cocoa, smoked malts, and a hefty dose of vanilla bean.. excellent. The flavor found similar, with a bigger dose of vanilla.. dry and smokier on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with low-ish carbonation.. good feel.. great stuff!

Dark in color with almost no head. Aroma is coffee, vanilla and some chocolate. Taste is predominantly coffe with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. A good porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
