Kneed Deep brewing has been impressing me. I really like their imperial Red ale and their IPA. The Tanilla is well ehh. So let's get into it.
Appearance- It's a sexy beast. I dig the look. It holds promise. Deep red with a large thick head. Great start.
Smell- That head does a great job pushing the vanilla fragrance. It holds it there and since the head doesn't dissipate quickly its aroma lingers. Again, GREAT start.
Taste- So this is a porter and it's vanilla. My expectations would be that it does both well. Well it doesn't really. The porter aspects are somewhat harsh. I'm a porter guy and this just wasn't fun to drink. It didn't commit in any one direction. I couldn't call it a Vanilla beer either because the vanilla was such an afterthought.
Mouthfeel- This is probably the worst part. It was heavy on carbonation and at times I had to swallow several times to clear my mouth. So it brought out alot of saliva. Not to be gross but that's just not fun.
I think this company has a lot of potential and they've made some good beers and will continue i'm sure. This one, I'm not coming back for.

A: Pours black with a mocha head.
S: Nose has dark roast coffee, some dark chocolate, but very little vanilla.
T: Strong dark roast coffee followed by a decent amount of vanilla, then dark chocolate and more coffee in the finish.
M: Full bodied and not smooth... until it warms up. Vanilla becomes much more noticeable and the body becomes smoother and creamy.
O: Definitely drink this a bit warmer than your average beer. It's a solid vanilla porter. I definitely like the style.
