Aroma of vanilla very prominent. Creamy tan colored head that lasts. Amazing flavor of coffee and vanilla with a very smooth mouth feel from the nitro tap. Vanilla not as strong in flavor as some vanilla portets I have had. Bottle was okay by the nitro takes it to another level. Done in a great porter fashion.
Serving type: nitro-tap

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):
LOOK: Opaque, black, decent lacing
SMELL: Heavy vanilla, coffee grounds, earthy, roasted grain, sweet nose, alcohol
TASTE: Sweet, full bodied, assertive vanilla, burnt sugar, cowboy coffee, faint black cherries, brown malt, toasty graininess, mild charcoal, mild esters, feigned sweet finish
A big brew, but not really robust. The flavorings noted are there, but nothing really pops; they do, however, still work well enough without taking away from the fact that this is a Porter. Give it a try—a beer to share, or perhaps it will grow on you … a big Porter with no bite.

On draft from fox & hound in Ohio.
A black porter with a small creamy "coke" colored head with minimal lacing.
A deep chocolate and coffee aroma with a hint of vanilla.
Taste was similar to aroma - chocolate up front with a long lasting slightly bitter coffee finish with mild vanilla undertones.
Mouth feel was nice, smooth & lightly creamy. Very little alcohol taste or burn for a 7.6%ABV.
I very good chocolate vanilla porter that I hope to drink again
Serving type: on-tap

Nitro at Wino's in Bowling Green.
A - Deep brown, nearly black, great Nitro head.
S - Fairly muted dark malts and coffee with a sweet hint.
T - Creamy coffee, vanilla and chocolate all blend smoothly together. The nitro really helps lift the creaminess throughout.
M - Well, the light porter body is evident, but the nitro gives a lot of nice fullness to bring it up.
O - Really a nice porter. I'd be interested to see how good the flavors blends with a different gas blend or out of a bottle. As it stands, this is one of the best porters I've ever had, flying right under the radar. Could be the nitro though.
