Good, smooth, robust porter, dark, good head, smells like chocolate, drink with friends, on bottle, smells as good as it tastes, don't underestimate this beer. Bought in a larger bomber and got the light kind, not the dark, not the hoppy, just the smooth version.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, roasted coffee, vanilla, and some sweet caramel malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some roasted coffee, vanilla, and caramel malts. Through the middle, some more coffee flavor and vanilla with some nuttiness. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and coffee malts with some vanilla, caramel malts, and nutty flavors.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch thick with a sweet and roasty finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice American porter with a good overall balance.

Well, as a porter, this is probably my favorite so far.
Very sweet, chocolate-y malt and vanilla (PROMINENT vanilla), with a bitter roasty finish. Thats it. Thats all it does and it does it pretty well.
So its a dessert-y kind of beer. And if thats what you're looking for, and you like chocolate and vanilla mixed together, this is worth a try. I'd get it again just for that purpose.

Review version 2 thanks to getting auto-logged out after 30 minutes, AGAIN. Hope I can remember some of it.
Pours a deep, chestnut brown with red throughout. Latte colored head drops to a thick film that stays forever. no lace, though.
Smell is roasted malt, coffee, cardboard, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Really well balanced though weak overall until it warms some.
Taste is toast, malt, coffee, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate. Well balanced. Warming helps here as well. Slight medicinal note in the aftertaste.
Smooth, medium bodied, lightly effervescent. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes before drinking and you will be rewarded.

Poured a deep brown, almost black, with a thin tan head that dissipated to a tan ring, leaving a slight bit of lacing. Looks quite nice, but a bit dark for a porter. Scents of roast malt, vanilla, and slight coffee. A good porter scent with the nice addition of vanilla. Flavors of roast malt, slight dark chocolate and black coffee and some slight sweetness throughout, finishes with more black coffee and a slight hint of vanilla at the end. Aftertaste is bitter with black coffee and dark chocolate. A good classic porter flavor with a nice bit of vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly thick, with low carbonation. About half-way between a porter and a stout and quite easy to drink. Overall quite the nice vanilla porter, it drinks smooth and has the nice flavor of a porter supporting the vanilla.

Poured into a Florida Beer Company tapered pint. No freshness date.
A- Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that bears average retention time before dropping down to an 1/8 inch head. Frothy threads of lacing.
S- Sweet coffee nose with notes of caramel, vanilla, and cocoa.
T- Medium roasted malts with a sweet start and a chocolatey finish. Light in alcohol and bitterness. Hints of vanilla and toffee. Very smooth.
M- Slightly creamy with medium thickness. Medium carbonation and a relatively soft body for the style.
O- As far as taste and viscosity go, it's quite tame but effective. A good session porter.

A - Black color with red hue. Mocha brown head with decent retention.
S - Milky vanilla and a little bit of roasted malt. Creamy and sweet aromas, almost like an ice cream.
T - Somehow reminiscent of a milk stout. Creamy texture with vanilla sweetness. The roasted malt takes a backseat on this one.
M - Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied.
O - A little sweeter than what I expected, but it's not bad at all. Great for your friend that doesn't like the bitter hops or heavy dark beers.

22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a sizable, ecru head that's slowly dwindling.
Smell: Toasted, chocolate-scented malts with a backdrop of roast and complimentary albeit demanded notes of vanilla beans that open up and stretch a bit more as it warms.
Taste: Toasted bread, bland, basic coffee, and sweet chocolate chips given a decent dose of vanilla beans. Faintly estery. Scantly earthy, herbal hops with a low bitterness. A dash of vanilla sugar on the tongue holds until the soft, malty finish for a nibble of Nilla wafers washed down with Coke Blak.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light (though still sufficiently smooth) body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Cheerfully drinkable. It carried across the promised flavor well enough for a beer with vanilla beans (and with natural flavor added).

Pours dark, nearly black with glints of red in bright light. Root beer head of a little north of an inch. Bouquet is meager--a little white chocolate and bourbon noted. Flavor is surprisingly bold that delivers a middle characterized by a sweet, white chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Finishes with a quickly disappearing coffee acidity. Creamy, pleasant mouthfeel. Fun beer. And at 6.3% ABV, you can have two.
