Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #57 (October 2011):

In an exceptionally drinkable flavored Porter, vanilla is an accessory that helps the Porter just be a Porter. Drinkable, as the dryness asks for another sip. Not your typical dessert beer, it’s actually quite versatile, as it would be good to put up against a spicy beef dish or used as a compliment to something similar.

LOOK: Charcoal

SMELL: Vanilla beans, carob powder, golden raisins, nougat, burnt toast

TASTE: Roasted grain, cream soda, breakfast-blend coffee, cocoa, semidry, vague fruit

A- Deep brown with a tan head. Nice lacing all the way down the glass.

S- Strong vanilla bean straight up, almost as though a dash of vanilla extract had been added to a milk stout. Very appealing, not "imitation"

T- Right up front, the vanilla is very strong, but there aren't a lot of off flavors from the sugars. Nice malts balance it out, even though my first instinct was to say that it tasted like a vanilla milkshake.

M- Creamy. Rolls across the tongue.

O- Yum. Almost a desert porter.
