Pours a clear medium-dark brown with large tan head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is initially vanilla that fades into a pleasant roasted malt with strong cocoa notes. Taste is vanilla, and sweet Mexican chocolate, very mild and smooth drinking. Aftertaste is like a store-bought chocolate cookie. Not an intense beer; very mellow and pleasant on the palate.

I had a case of this in my cooler at a neighborhood BBQ and it disappeared quickly.

Draught @ Curley's Pub: This one pours a fairly opaque, dark brown color. There was a small tan head that left a little lacing. The aroma isn’t bad. Definitely has vanilla on top, but it is not too strong. Also has notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste isn’t bad. Vanilla, espresso, chocolate are dominant. Not much else. Medium bodied. Just a touch sweet. Not a bad brew at all.

Serving type: on-tap

A - Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of vanilla beans, chocolate and roasted malt.

T - It tasted of a strong vanilla presence with some sweet milk chocolate and some roasty malt.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a pretty nice vanilla porter. One of the better brews from the Leinenkugel lineup.
