I tried the Vanilla Porter at Awful Arthurs during a recent visit to ROanoke. The beer was not good. The Dark Side Porter was good....but this off-shoot was not...in my opinion. The beer poured a very dark almost opaque. The head was off-white and not alot of lacing. The smell did not include any vanilla in my opinion which definitely hurt the score. The taste was a weakened Dark Side that just was not good. The mouthfeel was poor...very light almost watery body with no carbonation. Overall it was not a good beer....sorry.
