vanilla is present but not dominant, other porter flavors are a bit subdued but this is a very nice beer.

A: poured into a pint glass to a black beer with some ruby hilights and a half finger of dense tan head that retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of vanilla and chocolate with a little roast malt but the nose is mostly dominated by vanilla
T: taste is vanilla and roasted malt with some chocolate. swallow is roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla
M: lighter side of medium on the palate with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Overall this beer has great flavors and balance. this bottle isn't the freshest but it still has a good bit of vanilla flavor. It's definitely enjoyable and a good representation for the style.

Great porter. Nice dessert beer. Every time I drop by the drydock tasting room my wife demands I pick up some vanilla porter.

This vanilla porter was really good. I had it on tap at the tasting room, as opposed to other Dry Dock beers I've reviewed that all came in cans as part of a sampler pack. Maybe that made a little bit of difference, I don't know, but I liked the overall flavor of this beer better than their others. I'd get this one again.

Smooth nose, no over the top up front smoky overkill, nice mild vanilla. Middle offers just a touch more smoke but it fades quickly. Little more vanilla lingers as it goes down with a slight tinge of carbonation on back of tongue. Best vanilla porter I've had.

A 22-oz. bomber purchased in Boulder, Colorado three weeks ago. Cracked at my house in Albuquerque.

A- Engine oil black, well-carbonated, opaque, khaki-colored head that's pillowy, frothy and persistent

S- chocolate, vanilla, roasty, malty, hints of coffee

T- vanilla, coffee, subtle smokiness, roasted malt, brown sugar, sweetness

M- Smooth, creamy but slightly light-bodied, lingering sweetness

Overall, a tasty porter with a well-balanced flavor profile and mix of characteristics. I enjoyed this.
