(Ugly Duck Imperial Vanilla Coffee Porter) Bottle 330 ml, from a trade with humlelala, thanks! Served into a snifter ABV 10%
Black colour on the body with a full finger of thick, beige head, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma has tons of coffee, roasted malts, light vanilla, some alcohol after a deep sniff, some hops.
Really great taste, again lots of coffee, lots of roasted malts, alcohol present but without any burning, on the contrary compliments the beer, much more vanilla now.
Medium thick body, soft carbonation, smooth and creamy feeling on the palate.

Flavor is roasty, hints of vanilla and coconut with hints of burnt wood. Final is slightly bittery with black coffee notes. stuj01 (24) - SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2014
Very nice Vanilla smell which make it promising. No foam. Short in taste. But quite ordinary and flat.

Opaque black with a tinge of brown. Practically no head on this beer. Aroma is malts and liquorice. Taste is vanilla, chocolate milkshake and slightly bitter. Well balanced and has a good body. Reminds me of a choco milkshake somewhat. 33cl bottle Beergaard (359) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2014
Nice dark brown/black color and a sticky light brown head. Aroma of bitter coffee, dried fruit, alcohol, chocolate and vanilla - just a bit more vanilla would have been nice though. Quite creamy mouthfeel, loads of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some hops. Very good beer indeed
