Apologies for the typo in the title.

This poured a cola color with a thin layer of foam. There’s a pronounced vanilla note on the aroma. The flavor has a heavy dose of vanilla and skews on the sweetish side of things for a porter. Thinly bodied with little roast to contrast the sugar-cookie vanilla sweetness.

The beer pours a creamy tan but is also a a bubbly head. The beer itself is an opaque dark black with dark brown notes as well. The smell has very strong vanilla sweetness notes, but is slightly balanced by some sweet dark chocolate notes. The smell is heavily vanilla leaning. The taste is the same as the smell but with stronger cocoa notes and dark chocolate sweetness that balances out the vanilla notes. The beer develops a more robust roast flavor as it warms up. The mouthfeel is fairly heavy but is still pretty smooth bordering on silky despite the biting carbonation. Overall, a very good vanilla porter despite being very heavy on the vanilla. Highly recommend.

Short Review. Good vanilla Porter, the roasted malts showed up just enough and the vanilla was right where it needs to be to make for a good flavor and aftertaste. I would for sure drink this one again, good job guys.

Pours into a pint glass a dark black color. Head fades quick but leaves lacing. Nice vanilla notes with chocolate tones that complement well. A nice drinkable porter

It's very strong vanilla. You cannot do more than one. It's a must try, just because it's different and very strong with vanilla.

Nitro version is amazing! Smooth and thick for a porter. Full of vanilla, coffee and chocolate flavor.
