Sure, imitation vanilla, but it still manages to be absolutely tasty for the style and ABV. Good training wheels for those who fear dark beer.

By itself, just a good porter. A sip of this followed by a sip of a good bourbon is spectacular.

Bought a 6 pack of this because I'm a fan of Vanilla Porters. The cap just about burst off the top of the 1st 2 bottles I opened and the proceeded to pour as as if I just shook the bottles on the way home. So after dumping them I opened the 3rd only to pour a flat beer, tasted and dumped, opened a 4th only for it to explode open. I then drove them back to the store which iI go to often and traded it for something else! Leinies Snowdrift Vanilla Porter instead!
